the judging process
All entries are fairly judged by a confidential panel of international industry experts. Judges review each entry based on the criteria provided for that category. Their votes are compiled to create a short list of winner candidates. The judges then deliberate the final winners. First-place and runner-up winners are selected in each category. Normally, winners of FoodTrekking Awards are invited to collect their trophies in person at our annual FoodTreX Innovation Summit in London, due to the pandemic the Awards Ceremony will be held online.
