The World Plant-Based Awards 2022, in association with Plant Based World Expo North America, is a celebration of innovation and excellence across the global plant-based industry. We asked the second half of our judging panel what they are hoping to see from this year’s entrants.
There are 17 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 July.
