Introducing the World Confectionery Awards

Excellence across the entire breadth of the industry will be celebrated with the launch of an awards series forming a key part of our World Confectionery Conference.

With many outstanding developments across our sector, and as our parent company Bell Publishing commemorates its own 20th anniversary, we believed the timing was perfect to ensure significant developments and breakthroughs are recognised.

The World Confectionery Awards, voted for entirely by those working within the industry, will mark supplier innovations across equipment, ingredients and finished product segments.

They will be presented at a drinks reception that draws our conference to a celebratory close in Brussels on September 11, 2020, with event delegates expected from a wealth of small and medium enterprises, as well as larger businesses from around the globe.

In total, there will be five supplier awards presented. Each business will be allowed to nominate a maximum of one company innovation into each of the awards.

This year the categories are:
Equipment innovation
Dedicated to the overall design of new or existing equipment
Sustainability – focusing on efficiency of equipment and systems for confectionery and snacks sectors
Team of the Year – marking leading team contributions and achievement to an individual business.
Ingredients Innovation – Celebrating major breakthroughs in ingredients
Finished Product Innovation.
– Showcasing dynamic new finished product confectionery lines

The awards are free to enter, with companies able to place entries until 10 July 2020 to nominate in each respective category. This will be done through the World Confectionery Conference website, which is due to launch shortly.

Entries should include a 200-word description on why their nomination has made a difference to the sector over the past year. This can also be done through contacting Kyra O’Sheen at Bell Publishing at [email protected]

The awards will be independently moderated by our editorial board, and to ensure neutrality, only one vote per person and multiple votes from one person or excessive votes from one company will be discounted.

There will be a shortlist announced prior to the event, with accolades being presented at the conference on 11 September 2020.
