AWARDS & CATEGORIES
About 35 Italian companies in the f&b sector have nominated 60 products selected among their latest innovations. The products are divided into 8 categories: Beverage, Condiments & Sauces, Deli, Frozen, Oil & Vinegar, Pasta, Rice & Dry Mixes, Preserves, Snacks & Aperitivo. The Jury of Experts will assign the Awards to the most innovative Italian f&b product, one per each category. Also two special awards will be assigned by the Jury of Experts in these two areas: Packaging and Sustainability.
All candidate products have been evaluated through a two-step process.
