WFC's Sandwich Category Raised to the Gold Standard

ORANGE BEACH, AL--(Marketwired - March 24, 2017) - Some say platinum is the highest standard of all, but not at the World Food Championships. We still believe that it's the Gold standard that matters, especially when it comes to Red Gold!

WFC proudly announced today that Red Gold Tomatoes will sponsor its 2017 Sandwich Category as they return to Orange Beach for the Ultimate Food Fight in November.

This Indiana-based manufacturer of premium quality tomatoes will also present an online recipe automatic qualifier in the upcoming months, giving chefs and home cooks a chance to show off their sandwich creations and earn a coveted Golden Ticket. The winner will represent Red Gold Tomatoes at WFC, where $10,000 is up for grabs as the champion of the sandwich division, as well as a seat at WFC's Final Table for much more.

Like last year, Red Gold products will be included in the WFC pantry where they will be providing Ketchup and Canned Tomatoes for the use of WFC competitors.

"We're thrilled to welcome back Red Gold to our lineup of incredible sponsors. Their premium quality products are exactly what our Food Champs are expecting to find and work with in our Champions Pantry," said Mike McCloud, CEO of World Food Championships. "Through partners like Red Gold, we believe culinary artisans are getting to experience and display Food Sport like never before."

"Red Gold is excited to partner with the World Food Championships," said David Halt, Red Gold's Divisional Vice President of Food Service Sales. "Educating chefs and restaurateurs about what Red Gold tomato products can offer their recipes and food operations is our passion. We can't wait to see what they'll cook up this year!"
