Judging Methodology

The five Member-only Awards (Business of the Year, Sourcing, Society, Environment and Supplier) are based predominantly on the results from the completion of the rigorous Food Made Good Sustainability Star Ratings during the rating cycle. In addition to the high scores, evidence of outstanding innovation and influence also plays a role in establishing the winner, decided by the Food Made Good Hong Kong, Global teams and Judges.

The industry awards (Good To Go, One Planet Planet, Landlord Choice, Innovation and Food Hero) are judged with predetermined criteria against relevant themes. Judging panels consist of Food Made Good staff, Advisory Board and Sponsor representatives.
