Plant Based World are proud to announce the launch of The World Plant-Based Taste Awards, in association with FoodBev Media. They are a celebration of taste across many categories of the global plant-based industry. As 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 and to ensure it gains global recognition. 
Being named ‘winner’ or ‘finalist’ provides a hallmark of success that will prevail long after the awards ceremony and can highlight the contribution your company’s products and team are making to the plant-based industry.

Where are the awards hosted/presented? 

The awards ceremony will take place in 2021 at our show, Plant Based World Europe at the Business Design Centre, London. 

How will the judging take place? 

Every entry will be personally tasted by a panel of leading figureheads in the plant-based industry. 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 the first day of the show in the morning, 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.  

The behind closed doors categories will be judged by our handpicked panel of industry experts in the afternoon, in a dedicated tasting room. The judges will score each entry and the winners and finalists will be determined by the highest scores. 

All winners and finalists will be announced during our 2021 World Plant-Based Taste Awards ceremony which will take place on the second show day of Plant Based World Europe Conference & Expo.
