Mr. Michael R Hay, President of Ringier Trade Media, explains: “Let me stress this event is not to recognize Ringier in anyway – rather to encourage, acknowledge and reward those individuals and companies who introduce and develop a new ideas, a new method, a new product or technology. We are merely the framework by which these Awards take place.”
This year, “nutriceuticals” is still one of the most competitive categories due to the fact that China consumers are more concerned over their health and food safety, and holding food producers accountable for their products. Among them, the Oatwell oat beta glucan of DSM (China) Company, K-REAL krill oil of Israeli Enzymotec company, Green Caviar ™ anti-oxidative, moisturizing and skin whitening sea grape extract of TCI biomedical Limited, were some of the excellent submissions were singled out by the judges.as they not only offer tangeable , measurable benefits, but are stable and easy-to-manage in various food and beverage.
The most important elements in any Awards Program is that it must be honest, it must be fair, and it must be transparent and …in our case …that it truly identifies “Innovation”. Thus it is the independent panel of experts – the judges who play the key role in the selection of the winners, that is the one important feature that make this award special and different from other such programs in China. These judges cannot be bought, we cannot be bought – nominations are open to everybody in the industry – the final winners are selected however solely on their merit – and nothing more.
Also thank again the involvement of all our judges who have given up a considerable amount of their time to perform their difficult task.
