This week was truly exciting for the DrinkPreneur Live 2014 entries as the voting process was about to finish. Judges examined each product on different levels – analyzing the market, packaging, innovation and business model to determine, who of them has the most potential to become one of the next big things in the consumer goods industry.
41 brand owners had submitted their products to the event before the 31st of May and judges had to choose only 20 who will have an opportunity to present their products at the Live event in London on the 11th of June. They will have to face the constructive criticism and judgment from mentors and industry professionals during the workshop session and defend their ideas by the end of the day.
The team of judges and Industry experts include, Richard Reed – co-founder of the Innocent drinks and JamJar investments, David Beardmore – Category buyers from Tesco’s, Tony Parente – Coca-Cola’s new Ventures director and many more. Most of them have been shaping the UK’s food and beverage industry for the last 10-20 years and they have seen many brands rise and fall.
