The World Plant-Based Taste Awards, in association with Plant Based World Europe Conference & Expo 2021, are a celebration of taste across many categories of the global plant-based industry. As one of the first of its kind in this sector, these awards are a fantastic way for you to enhance the promotion of your plant-based brand.
These awards are different to our innovation-based awards schemes as, instead of basing the winners on innovation and concept, the winners will be decided based solely on the taste of the product.
As FoodBev Media’s first taste awards, the World Plant-Based Taste Awards team has laid out exactly how the judging will work for this exciting scheme and how product entry will differ from previous awards schemes.
How to enter
Once the scheme closes for entries we will notify entrants on where to send samples.
All entries must be received before close of business Friday 20 August 2021.
How will the judging work
Every entry will be personally tasted and judged by a panel of leading figureheads in the plant-based industry at the Plant Based World Europe Conference & Expo on 15-16 October 2021.
The categories will be split into two judging categories; live-tasting and behind closed doors.
The live-tasting categories will be split into 2 separate judging sessions. On 15 October (AM), all entries will be tasted and scored by a handpicked judging panel of industry experts in a dedicated tasting room. The top 3 highest scoring entries will then be tasted live on Thursday afternoon by a celebrity panel. Whilst the tasting will take place in front of an audience, the scoring will not.
Finalists of the live-tasting categories will be contacted via email or phone as the results are in. If you do not hear from us then, unfortunately, it means you have not been shortlisted.
The behind closed doors categories will be judged by our handpicked panel of industry experts on 15 October, in a dedicated tasting room. The judges will score each entry and the winners and finalists will be determined by the highest scores.
We will let the finalists of the behind closed doors categories know on Friday afternoon, as soon as the results are in. If you do not hear from us then, unfortunately, it means you have not been shortlisted.
All of our winners and finalists will be announced during our 2021 World Plant-Based Taste Awards ceremony which will take place on 16 October 2021, at Plant Based World Europe Conference & Expo.
