Delivery details, samples needed and classes to enter

The purpose of this page is to have a central place to look up the delivery details for samples, the number of samples needed and the different classes that different entry categories have.

Choose a main category below to go to that section.

Categories for baked goods and confectionary:

Baked goods will be judged in subcategories according to the following main criteria:

  • Premix for baked goods
  • Bread
  • Cakes
  • Confectionery (for example fudge, honeycomb, marshmallows and all other types of confectionary except for chocolate, which has a category of its own)
  • Scones and Muffins
  • Croissants
  • Cookies
  • Pastries
  • Doughnuts
  • Rusks
  • Other types of baked goods

Samples may be at room temperature or frozen. Frozen samples will be thawed ahead of time.

Premixed ingredients will be prepared according to instructions using only basic pantry ingredients.

The only equipment that will be used to heat other baked goods if necessary will be:

  • Microwave oven
  • Conventional oven
Samples needed for baked goods and confectionary:
  • For all baked goods and confectionary, a minimum of 3 separate containers/packets containing samples, with a minimum combined weight of 750 grams is needed.
  • Please respect the cold chain at all times when sending samples.

Where should the samples be delivered?

Delivery options and FAQs

Samples must reach the event in Stellenbosch, South Africa in time for evaluation, and there are two options. The first option is for products that are located close by, that will easily be delivered in the two days allocated, and the second is for samples from overseas or far-flung destinations, which require a bigger delivery window.

Option 1

  • This option is ideal where samples are not sent from a far distance, and they will definitely arrive in time.
  • 2-day delivery window
  • 15-16 August 2022 from 09:00 to 16:00
  • Delivered to venue

Option 2

  • Best for cold chain dependent entries and entries from overseas
  • 12 days delivery window
  • From 1-12 August 2022
  • Best to use overnight delivery options to make sure entries arrive during the week, on the days allocated.
  • Delivery from 09:00 and 16:00 during weekdays
  • Delivered to DHL in Paarl (very close to the venue).

Both options will respect the cold chain from arrival, and delicate chocolates, ice-creams and other temperature-sensitive products will at all times be treated with great care.

Please label all samples on the outside as follows:

  • PERISHABLE
  • PLEASE KEEP FROZEN
  • KEEP REFRIGERATED
  • All frozen samples must be shipped in the presence of dry ice.
  • Use frozen ice packs when shipping refrigerated samples.

DHL is our preferred delivery solution, and you can read more about them here.

General FAQs

How many samples do I need to deliver?

Do entrants get a reduced-price option through DHL?

Because DHL consolidates deliveries, the prices will be reduced. Make sure you arrange with Marijke on Marijke.Douglas@dhl.com or phone her on +27 (0)21 872 4717 to get the necessary detail.

Will you have a show for people / companies to attend if they are not entering the event?

The Aurora International Taste Challenge is not a trade show or public event. Only the organisers and judges are present.

There is also no prize-giving ceremony or trade / public tasting afterwards.

Rules specific to baked good and confectionary:

  • All samples are to be clearly labelled to identify the entries. This information includes the name of the manufacturer, the commercial name of the product, and the particular variant of the product if appropriate.
  • Please respect the cold chain at all times when delivering samples.
  • All samples must display the batch number, Use by Date and Best before date.
  • Because this is an international event, the basic guidelines for classes must be followed, but it is up to the entrant to choose a class that is appropriate relative to their own frame of reference. The judges reserve the right to move the product to a more appropriate class.
  • All entries have to arrive, having maintained the cold chain as appropriate, from the producer to the delivery point, and must be in suitable and hygienic packaging.
  • The same product, even if under a different brand or name, may not be entered twice.
  • Any products left over after judging become the property of the event.
  • All costs related to delivery, including customs fees and taxes etc. are at the participant’s expense.
  • Only commercially operated importers, producers or distributors have that abide by the food laws of the country of origin may enter.

  • Specialised packaging material or any other packaging material will not be returned. Specialised packaging material can significantly preserve the final quality and viability of the sample being judged.
  • If styrofoam peanuts are used for packaging, please secure them in a container that will not cause leakage or spillage of the packaging materials.

Samples needed for Beer, Cider and Mead

Each entry requires a minimum of 6 containers totalling a minimum combined volume of 1500ml, or 2 containers for containers bigger than 500ml.

These samples need to be in their final bottled/packaged format, and no tank samples are allowed. No kegs are allowed.

Where should the samples be delivered?

Delivery options and FAQs

Samples must reach the event in Stellenbosch, South Africa in time for evaluation, and there are two options. The first option is for products that are located close by, that will easily be delivered in the two days allocated, and the second is for samples from overseas or far-flung destinations, which require a bigger delivery window.

Option 1

  • This option is ideal where samples are not sent from a far distance, and they will definitely arrive in time.
  • 2-day delivery window
  • 15-16 August 2022 from 09:00 to 16:00
  • Delivered to venue

Option 2

  • Best for cold chain dependent entries and entries from overseas
  • 12 days delivery window
  • From 1-12 August 2022
  • Best to use overnight delivery options to make sure entries arrive during the week, on the days allocated.
  • Delivery from 09:00 and 16:00 during weekdays
  • Delivered to DHL in Paarl (very close to the venue).

Both options will respect the cold chain from arrival, and delicate chocolates, ice-creams and other temperature-sensitive products will at all times be treated with great care.

Please label all samples on the outside as follows:

  • PERISHABLE
  • PLEASE KEEP FROZEN
  • KEEP REFRIGERATED
  • All frozen samples must be shipped in the presence of dry ice.

General FAQs

How many samples do I need to deliver?

If you are on the page of the particular category that you need, you will find the information under FAQs. If you are on another page, just go to the page with the sample information for all products.

Do taxes and customs fees only relate to imports?

Only samples sent from outside of South Africa will accrue taxes, clearance and customs fees.

Do entrants get a reduced-price option through DHL?

Because DHL consolidates deliveries, the prices will be reduced. Make sure you arrange with Marijke on Marijke.Douglas@dhl.com or phone her on +27 (0)21 872 4717 to get the necessary detail.

Will you have a show for people / companies to attend if they are not entering the event?

The Aurora International Taste Challenge is not a trade show or public event. Only the organisers and judges are present.

There is also no prize-giving ceremony or trade / public tasting afterwards.

Rules specific to beer, cider and mead:

  • Samples may not be past their sell-by date.

  • All cost related to delivery, including customs fees and taxes etc. are for the participant’s expense.
