The Aurora International Taste Challenge was established to recognise and award food product excellence, while helping consumers purchase award-winning, scientifically rated products with confidence. The Aurora International Taste Challenge 2019 will be held in South Africa to celebrate and honour universal food quality.
This year, water of all natures will be judged and awarded, as well as beer an cider, and both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Our judges will include a cherry-picked assortment of sommeliers and other food industry professionals.
While many consumers are brand loyal, most would pick another product if given fair rating of products. Some may invest in either cheaper or more costly products depending on personal preference and the awards awarded during this competition.
The Aurora Taste Challenge will grant merit and trophy awards to exceptional products available worldwide. We are proud to be setting new industry standards.
