What exactly will today's consumers want on their plates tomorrow? It is with this rather tricky question in mind that food companies are constantly striving to develop products that meet the needs of even the most discerning gourmets.


Four companies win the Golden Tavola Awards in four categories. The fair is from 17 to 19 March at Kortrijk Xpo. From traditional to vegan, local to global products with a focus on convenience over sustainability to clean label and allergens.... Today's consumer's wish list is long. And at the top, of course, is taste! These are trends and desires that manufacturers would rather not ignore. The consumer is on board and this was clearly visible in the entries of the Golden Tavola competition. The Tavola trade fair will welcome 400 exhibitors and expect over 14,000 professionals from 17 to 19 March 2024 in Kortrijk Xpo.


4 Categories

With food arriving on our plates through a variety of channels, and with criteria for innovation varying according to these channels – a supermarket, for example, has different requirements than a catering business –, the Golden Tavola competition also takes this aspect into account.


The Rambla

All the products that got through to the 2nd round of judging will be showcased along the central Rambla at Tavola, which will be the perfect place to start your journey towards discovering the most outstanding new products. As for the 12 winners and nominees, they will have their own stand, where visitors will not only be able to find out more about the products, but they will also have the opportunity to taste them and vote for the Audience Award.

Meule du Plateau Réserve 18 months – Terre de Fromages

This is a 100% Belgian cheese made from raw milk, produced by cows that are fed only grass/hay (no silage), which is key to obtaining superior quality milk. This unique pressed cheese is matured for 18 months on spruce boards. The ripening produces more intense, complex and nutty flavours with a slightly saltier taste.
The cheese has a supple texture, slightly brittle and melts in the mouth. The presence of salt crystals results from the long maturation process.
