 Speaking about the launch of the awards and the importance of providing a two day show that delivers for both exhibitors and visitors, Patrick Clement, IFSA Chairman comments:
“Food & Bev Live is a unique event that caters to those owning, operating and working in foodservice, hospitality and leisure establishments across Ireland and Europe. As THE trade event for the sector in 2020, we are thrilled to be launching the IFSA’s at the show. Aimed at showcasing the wealth of innovation and technology which our members continually bring to market each year. Categories have been chosen to take into account innovation across all product sectors from catering equipment, disposables, tableware, services, and of course actual food and beverage products.
“For 2020 the theme of the inaugural IFSA’s will be – Innovation for a sustainable future- a timely focus highlighting the Industry’s response to the very real environmental crisis which we are all facing as suppliers.”
Entries to the awards are now open and winners will be announced on the 4th February – the first day of Food & Bev Live 2020.
Celebrating Ireland’s dynamic foodservice industry, and in an increasingly competitive market, Food & Bev Live 2020 will continue the event’s rich history of celebrating excellence within the industry and will play host to world-class competitions including the National Barista Championships, Irish Cocktail Championships and the ‘hotly’ contended Chef Ireland Culinary Competitions. Ireland’s first National Pizza Championships will be launched at the show in association with the Associazione Pizzerie Italiane (API) and will see chefs from across Ireland battle it out to be crowned National Pizza Champion.
Bursting with industry-specific attractions, that serve up inspirational solutions for Ireland’s foodservice and hospitality sectors, Food & Bev Live is a unique opportunity for exhibitors and visitors alike to attract business from leading industry associations across the sector.
