About the Awards
The World Food Travel Association introduced the FoodTrekking Awards in 2015 to recognize the excellence of experience afforded to customers and visitors by industry stakeholders representing the various awards categories. Applications are processed by a panel of judges, who are experts in the various categories represented. Judges assess how well each applicant has met the criteria. Winners are announced publicly and receive a handsome color plaque and generous publicity from the Association. Visit the main Awards page.
