The GRAPAS Innovations Awards are once again open and we need your entries by 31st March, 2019.
Milling and Grain magazine, the oldest milling magazine still in print – and first published in 1891 – is once again holding the GRAPAS Innovations Awards at Victam International 2019 from June 12-14th, 2019 in Köln, Germany.
The award will be made to the most innovative and economically beneficial equipment, process or service in the milling of grains and cereals for food production at GRAPAS Germany 2019.
All GRAPAS Innovations Award recipients will be published in an edition of Milling and Grain magazine along with a review of the event itself. This issue will not only reach MAG print readers, but will be promoted widely through the magazine’s social media to ensure maximum awareness of the Award winner within the milling industry globally.
Nominations are being called for from all sectors of food milling and from non-exhibiting and exhibiting companies alike. Those shortlisted for the award will have the opportunity to display their product in a special award’s area at the entrance to the Victam International exhibition hall for all visitors to view. Visitors will have an opportunity to vote for the most appealing nomination.
A panel of independent, international industry experts will judge the entries. Their selection will account for 60 percent of the final vote. Delegates attending the one-day GRAPAS Conference on June 13, 2019 and visitors attending the Victam International Exhibition from June 12-14, 2019 will be able to vote on the award and their combined vote will account for 40 percent of the final vote. The Award will be announced during Victam International 2019.
