We’re excited to announce our Summer Bombe Alaska Gelato Cake won a Bronze Award in the 2022 Inspire+ NZ Artisan Awards!!
The Inspire+ NZ Artisan Awards saw its biggest year yet, with over 1,000 entries making it the largest food award programme in the country. Now the largest competition of its type in New Zealand, supporting New Zealand artisanal producers.
Not only was this year’s competition a record-breaker, but it also brought about changes to the judging criteria. Due to the overwhelming number of high-quality entries, there was no limit on the number of products receiving recognition this year.
How do the Inspire + NZ Artisan Award choose winners?
“In the past, the awards were structured through a process that reduced the number of entries to Category Finalists, a Category Winner and Highly Commended product mentions. From the Category Winners, a Supreme Award winner was then selected,” said head judge and Supermarket News publisher Tania Walters.
“The new criteria saw products judged individually rather than comparing them to what were very broad categories. Products were recognised with a Bronze, Silver or Gold award if they met the development standard. This included analysing the level of consumer demand in the category, degree of innovation, fit-for-purpose claims, visual appeal, price point, packaging, sustainability, shelf-life, mouth feel, taste, distribution and market relevance.”
