The most prestigious awards in the European & Middle Eastern Coffee and Food to Go sectors.
Now in their 12th year, the awards recognise companies and individuals who have made outstanding contributions within the European and Middle Eastern coffee and food-to-go sectors.
The winners are uniquely identified on peer nominations and celebrated during a black-tie gala dinner (taking place during the Europe & Middle East Coffee Symposium, 12 November at The Waldorf Astoria, Dubai Palm).
The Voting Process
European Coffee Award winners are selected in a 2-stage process that is designed to be as fair and transparent as possible. Firstly, companies are shortlisted based on research from Allegra Strategies and feedback from more than 100 industry experts. Once the shortlist has been finalised, industry experts from across Europe are invited to vote for the shortlisted candidates within their respective geographies, and the winners are selected from those scoring the highest number of votes in each category.
