TORONTO - One of the most important things all adjudicators on the SIAL Innovation Awards jury must do each year is to take time to think beyond our personal feelings about the items submitted for evaluation. Assessing whether the products have a clear and solid value proposition for their intended target market is much more important than simply liking or disliking a product on a personal level. Once we establish a list of products against that criteria, we really get down to work! Individually and then as a group we evaluate the submitted products on innovation platforms; recipe, packaging, manufacturing process and positioning are the 4 criteria that are weighed as our jury works through the evaluation phase to choose the top 10 most innovative products. ABOUT SIAL CANADA SIAL Canada, which includes the SET equipment and technology section, is an integral part of the SIAL network, the leading global network of shows dedicated to the food industry, with seven shows (SIAL Paris, SIAL Canada Montreal, SIAL Canada Toronto, SIAL China, SIAL Middle East, SIAL InterFOOD Jakarta, and the all-new SIAL India Inspired by SIAL) and brings together 14,000 exhibitors and 330,000 visitors from 200 countries. Established in 2001, SIAL Canada is the fruit of three agencies’ labour, all of whom are shareholders in the event: the ADAQ (Association des détaillants en alimentation du Québec), the Agri-Food Export Group Quebec-Canada, and Comexposium.
