The World Beverage Competition was founded on the premise that beverage products should be judged not by the strength of their marketing or the budget of their sales force, but rather on the quality and innovation of the product itself. Beverage brand owners spanning the globe are given the chance to compete on an even playing field;
All products submitted to the World Beverage Competition are taste tested by a panel of judges who…
…are industry professionals from 6 different continents; not celebrities, beverage retailers or public figures.
…are not announced to the public, as this leads to undue influence from brand owners.
…do not see the packaging or know the brand name prior to documenting and submitting their tasting scorecards.
Behind closed doors, in a tasting room closed to brand participants and the public, this “double blind” taste test method is one that is most effective in providing honest opinions from the panel. With these safeguards in place, the World Beverage Competition is accredited as the premier tasting event in the world of beverages.
We discourage offline entry, due to inherent delays.
