The World Food Innovation Awards 2021, in association with IFE, are a celebration of innovation and excellence across every category of the global food industry. We asked the second half of our judging panel what they are hoping to see from this year’s entrants.
There are 28 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 29 January.

Changes due to the global pandemic also effect the daily life of consumers, including their shopping and eating food habits. In addition, our green need is rapidly increasing and digitalization represents an important part of our new common rituals. As a result the role of food production is getting more crucial year-on-year because its innovation constitutes a key driver to answer current consumer demands and offers better products within the FMCG market.
In my opinion, new food developers who successfully decide to enter the WFIA this exceptional year should show their product developed by criteria such as:
