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. In September, entries will be tasted and scored by a handpicked judging panel of industry experts in a dedicated tasting session. The top 3 highest scoring entries will then be tasted live on Friday afternoon by a 2nd 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 September, prior to Plant Based World Europe. 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 at the end of day 1 of Plant Based World Europe Conference & Expo, at the Finnebrogue stand (VGB1).
