Update: I want to clarify something....when I suggested the awards lacked credibility, I did so at my own expense. I had a 1st place Award and a division champion award from the 1st year they were hosted.

I hate that I have to disregard those wins.

Also, I would never suggest, imply or assert that the winners of any of these awards were in any way undeserving. I'm sure all of the products that won were of high quality.

In a sense, that's why it is so easy to get away with running a shady awards show. If some sort of corruption is exposed, the people who have the most to lose are the winners. So people remain silent, even if they know their award is from a shady event.

On the bright side of things, I've spoken with a great number of vendors who were able to get their $ back from their credit card companies. Haven't seen the follow up from those who paid with checks.

Thank you for TIP I try to contact them.

They don't carry non-commercial products. Not sure where you are but in the United States shelf stable acidified products are highly regulated. It is illegal to sell anything that hasn't been made in a licensed commercial kitchen, with products that are FDA compliant and that have been cleared by the health dept.
