Record new launches competing at lunch! awards

A record 110 new products will be involved in the Innovation Challenge Awards at lunch! 2019, which returns to the ExCel London between 19th and 20th September.

Products competing for an Innovation Challenge Award will be showcased in the Innovation Challenge Gallery at the event, which offers visiting buyers – working across food-to-go, retail, hospitality, catering and wholesale – an industry-leading preview of what’s new and launching on the market.

lunch! visitors get to choose the award finalists by voting for their favourites on opening day, with the top picks going forward to the Innovation Challenge Live pitches session on the 20th. Successful exhibitors will then take turns to wow the judges, with just a 90-second slot to impress them.

The Innovation Challenge judges include Paul Ettinger, co-founder and business development director at Caffè Nero; Martyn Clover, head of food at Tortilla and Shereen Ritchie, operations director at LEON.
