After COVID-19 food&beverage evolves: FOOD Match wins

After COVID-19 the food&beverage industry evolves: here are the winners of FOOD Match!

After COVID-19 many enterprises have been carrying on with their business. Also the prestigious Food Match award of the FOOD magazine directed by Maria Cristina Alfieri for the best products from the food&beverage chain was held.

After COVID-19 recovery is slow but the food industry chain is already anticipating the needs of the new consumer, the “new normal”. As we already pointed out in our article about the sustainable packaging consumers today are more conscious and attentive to their purchase.

“… consumers evolved; they are more conscious and wish to create a connection with the producer for healthy, safe, traceable and sustainable products. The products that were awarded with the “Best Food Product 2020” this year are the living proof that food&beverage companies can listen to the consumer’s voice and offer products that can meet the customer’s needs”
