New award for best SA food blog announced as part of annual Eat In Awards

Keeping things local is what the 2012 Eat In DStv Food Network Produce Awards is all about. Against this background, Eat In - the ultimate foodie shopping guide that takes the form of an annual magazine and - has announced a new award for best local food blog this year.
This accolade acknowledges the role that local bloggers play in South Africa's food industry. For most of them blogging is a labour of love undertaken in their spare time, yet thousands of consumers trust their favourite bloggers' opinions and follow their cooking and shopping advice.

"In order to recognise local bloggers that are doing their bit to uplift local produce and small producers, we decided to introduce a new category in this year's awards. We also hope to encourage more bloggers to support the little guys this way," explained Eat In editor Anelde Greeff.

After nominations were accepted from the public, the judges settled on 10 finalists for the blog award, as well as the winners of the other categories such as best new product, best small producer (in sub-categories like grocery, dairy and bakery) and best organic producer, among others. Appropriately, the blogger award is the only one determined by Eat In readers' votes. Members of the public can vote once each for their favourite blogger on Eat In.
