Last week the British Frozen Food Federation began releasing information on the judging process for the Foodservice products in the British Frozen Food Awards, this week the judging process for the retail judging process are released.
A COVID Compliant Retail Judging Panel
The retail judging process usually takes the BFFF team 7 months to complete using 18 retail panels. All panellists look at the following elements of each product entry in the British Frozen Food Awards:
- Initial Impact
- Product Appeal
- Product Packaging
The BFFF team were half way through the judging process when the first lockdown was implemented. The BFFF Health and Safety team worked with the awards team to create a COVID safe strategy to complete the judging process sufficiently. Take a look at the below video of the retail judging panel and how the BFFF managed to fully complete the judging process with COVID.
The judges are also required to provide comments for every product entry, so companies can evaluate feedback once the awards night is over.
More information about the British Frozen Food Awards night will be announced shortly.
