World Dairy Innovation Awards
Many dairy processors have introduced great new products this past year and I encourage you to enter the World Dairy Innovation Awards 2017. U.K.-based FoodBev Media has organized and presented this award for the past 11 years, and this year will be selecting winners in 19 different categories ranging from products, brands and catering to marketing, packaging and sustainability. All are designed to celebrate excellence and innovation across every category of the global dairy industry.
Every year, some of the biggest, most world-renowned brands and groundbreaking new start-ups enter the awards, highlighting their newest innovations on this global platform. The finalists and winners of the 2017 awards will be announced at a special gala dinner during the 11th Global Dairy Congress on the evening of June 7, 2016, in Dublin, Ireland.
In 2016, the World Dairy Innovation Awards attracted more than 220 entries from 27 countries.
This year, the closing date for entries is April 28, 2017. For more information and to enter, link HERE.
