The World Dairy Innovation Awards 2022, in association with Zenith Global, are a celebration of innovation and excellence across the global dairy industry. We asked the first half of our judging panel what they are hoping to see from this year’s entrants.
There are 21 trophies to be won in total, and being shortlisted provides a hallmark of success that will prevail long after the awards draw to a close.
These judges’ criteria points will hopefully offer inspiration and help in crafting the winning entry.
The deadline for entries is Friday 22 April.

There has never been a more exciting time for NPD in the dairy sector. After a tough few years, both consumers and developers alike are looking for the next big trend. I spend most days working with dairy customers helping to improve the flavour of their products, so obviously, the number one factor I’m going to be looking for is how your product tastes. No matter how many other factors drive the success of a product, it always comes down to flavour.
