Finalists for International Dairy Show

The search for innovative solutions is often the driving force for those who attend the International Dairy Show in Chicago. What will the best innovative solutions be this year?

IDFA and Dairy Foods magazine have announced the 20 finalists for the 2015 Innovations Awards. Each of the finalists exemplifies achievements in performance, significant advancement in a technology or its application, innovative design or considerable cost savings. A team of industry experts and IDFA staff will judge the finalists before the show and select one winner in each of the following categories: Food Safety, Ingredient/Flavouring/Seasoning, Packaging, Processing and Sustainability.

Dairy Show attendees, Dairy Foods readers and others also can vote for their favorite overall innovation in the Attendee Choice Award category. The voting is open now online and will close at noon on September 17 at the show. This winner will represent what the voters believe has been the greatest achievement in price, performance or a significant advancement in a technology, application or innovative design since the 2013 show.

All award winners will be announced at the end of the Dairy Show, which will run 15-18 September at McCormick Place in Chicago.

“The Innovations Awards offer a great way to bring attention and acclaim to the new products and services revolutionizing the dairy industry,” says Robin Cornelison, IDFA trade show director. “The Attendee Choice Award is the industry’s way of recognizing and thanking those who make growth in dairy possible.”
