The sequestered judging process is 100% double blind – for the food award programs. Preliminary rounds (bronze silver, gold, double gold, 100-point perfect score Century Award) all the way to the final sweepstakes round which allows all judges to taste each brand and with group consensus, move any brand up to a higher awards level. Our competition is brand against itself – you will not be judged against other brands in your category – you are judged on your own merits based upon a 100 point evaluation system.
Kitchen Essentials competition will be held in a state of the art kitchen arena where buyers and chefs will test out the equipment in a true-to life setting. Mini Munchers awards will be a round table with up to 20 kids ranging in ages from 6-16, giving their one, two, three, four and five thumbs up approvals.
If you are a buyer and interested in judging, please reach out to Executive Director, Michele Tell at Michele@fbma.us.
