The INTERNORGA Future Award was launched in 2011 and is regarded as one of the most important prizes in the industry. It is presented in four categories, to honour products, services and strategies which promote sustainability.
Candidates for the INTERNORGA Future Award may compete in one of four categories – “Trendsetter Company – HORECA” is for companies from the hotel, restaurant, catering and institutional catering sectors to demonstrate how they combine entrepreneurial action and sustainable management.
Innovative products are honoured in the categories “Trendsetter Product – Food & Beverages” and “Trendsetter Product – Fittings & Equipment”, for outstanding contributions to innovation, environment friendliness, resource conservation, quality or functionality. “Trendsetter Company – Artisan” honours craft companies such as butchers or bakers that combine traditional skills with innovative technologies and sustainable management.
