For the past 7 years, MenuTrinfo has hosted the National Allergy Awards, highlighting and giving proper recognition to leaders of the industry. These organizations and individuals have dedicated their operations and innovation to provide a safe dining experience at their establishments.

Thank you to EVERYONE who submitted nominations this year, we at MenuTrinfo would have loved to have been able to give every single one of you well deserved recognition, but we had to pick a leader for the final award(s). 

If your nomination won, congratulations to you! If not, please know the competition was extremely stiff this year, and many categories came down to a very slim margin. We hope you will submit again next year! 

You are all winners for taking care of those with food allergies, and we commend you for that!
