A Richmond food manufacturer was recognized at this year’s BC Food and Beverage Awards last week.

Oomé, a smoked tofu company, was nominated and won the Best in Brand Award with co-founder Miki Talebi accepting the award at a Vancouver ceremony on Oct. 11.

Finalists are manufacturers of food and beverage products based in B.C. and were nominated as having “brands that stand out as leaders in the marketplace,” according to Sandra Merk, spokesperson for BC Food and Beverage.

Winners of the BC Food and Beverage Awards were selected by public vote in September.
