Bevpax and Goodio Win Buyers Choice Awards at ECRM European Food Program 7/15/2020
Last week ECRM hosted its 2020 European Food, Confectionery, Bio/Organic & Free From Virtual Program, enabling European buyers and distributors to meet with suppliers from around the world to connect in private, pre-scheduled face-to-face meetings despite travel bans and meeting restrictions caused by the pandemic.
During the course of three days, 762 meetings between buyers and suppliers took place, and the virtual meeting rooms hosted via the ECRM Connect platform were busy with conversations and product presentations.
During the virtual session, suppliers had the opportnity to submit their products for the awards program, and the 49 buyer participants had the opportunity to cast their digital vote on their favorite product based on packaging and product innovation. Bevpax took the first place with its fruity Survice Satchels Products. Second place went to Goodio for its Oats Chocolate Chai Coffee.
This was the first of several European Virtual Sessions ECRM will be hosting this year. Click here to see the full list of our category-specific virtual sessions!
