World Food Innovation Awards 2024: Winners announced

FoodBev is proud to unveil the highly-anticipated final results for the 2024 World Food Innovation Awards. After careful deliberation, this year's judging panel have recognised the top innovating contenders in the global food and beverage industry.

The winners of FoodBev's World Food Innovation Awards were announced during a special live ceremony, hosted at this year's International Food & Drink Event (IFE), the UK's premier celebration of industry innovation. This year's IFE event focused on exploring innovations, product showcases and celebrating ingenuity while generating new business opportunities and nurturing relationships.




Each participating company's product/business/initiative is recognised as a Winner, Finalist or Commended entry in their category and stands as an example of the incredible innovations made in the last year. Dan Bunt hosted the ceremony and had this to say:

"Myself and the FoodBev team are overwhelmed with the diversity of innovations displayed here today. With the introduction of the Winning Innovations publication, and the additional benefits added to each placement, we can celebrate and recognise more companies and innovations throughout 2024."

Having navigated through fierce competition, let us celebrate the achievements of more than 80 successful companies. Congratulations!
