The winners in all 26 categories will be announced as part of a special virtual ceremony hosted in association with IFE live on their YouTube Channel on 23 March.
FoodBev Media awards marketing executive Kieran Kennedy said:
“With what is a record number of entries for the World Food Innovation awards, we are thrilled to announce this year’s finalists. Now in it’s seventh year, the competition is even closer as companies explore more daring flavour combinations, push the boundaries of packaging design and create innovative new functional products.
“The World Food Innovation Awards represents a fantastic opportunity to share some of the most ambitious developments from the food industry and celebrate companies both senior and junior. This year’s contenders are some of our strongest yet and we can’t wait to see who will be crowned the winners in March.”
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.
