Notes on entering:

Products

All entry submissions are to be submitted and managed via our online portal – users can submit multiple or single entries, upload images, provide all product information, plus you will receive a unique code, enabling you to re-visit your entries and make amendments should you need to do so.

For each product entered into the awards, we will require five product samples to be sent to the TRBusiness headquarters in the UK. The postal address will be provided once your entries are successfully submitted. All samples will be distributed to the judges for touching, testing and tasting as part of the judging process.

TRBusiness will therefore not be able to return the samples provided for the awards.

The deadline for sending samples is Friday 17 June .

PLEASE NOTE THAT COMPANIES SUBMITTING NOMINATIONS IN THE PRODUCT AWARDS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL CUSTOMS CHARGES WHEN SENDING SAMPLES. THESE CHARGES ARE TO BE PAID IN ADVANCE.

Thank you for your understanding.

Each product entered will be submitted to be reviewed by 2,000 international travelling shoppers, sourced from m1nd-set’s unique database. When all the data is compiled and the winners are announced, each entry will receive a confidential evaluation document, with invaluable insights on how the product has performed.

 

This in-depth research and feedback will provide participating products with vital statistics, such as how appealing their brand is perceived in the DF&TR channel and exactly how they performed in the sector.

 

Each evaluation document will reveal how the product scored versus a benchmark score for the category, as well as how certain consumer demographics perceive the brand, such as millennials versus older age groups.

 

BEST SUSTAINABLE SUPPLIER AWARD 

In addition to the Product Awards categories, the Best Sustainable Supplier Award was launched in 2021. Submissions for this award should describe the sustainable values and attributes of a product, product range or production process. This includes but is not limited to: how the raw ingredients are sourced, how the products are manufactured or how they are packaged.

These values may be either environmentally-friendly or socially responsible values, including women empowerment or child education programmes, charitable partnerships or gender/race/ability inclusivity initiatives, linked to the production process.

Please note that if the submission refers to an entire range, it is possible to provide samples of just one of the products along with communication materials, such as a brochure, which explains the sustainable production process across the range.
