With over 30 entries coming in from various beverage companies in the country, all is set for the third edition of the annual beverage awards – but the big question on everyone’s lips is: “who wins what?”
The Ghana Beverage Awards, in its third year, aims at recognising outstanding beverage companies excelling in their various specialties. It is set to come off this Friday at the Kempinski Hotel, Gold-Coast City.
Throughout the month of February, the event organisers invited public nominations for the awards. At the end of the period, the public has been asked to vote for their choice of Product of the Year Award from a list of the top-seven brands who were successful in the screening process.
Speaking on the nominations turned in for the awards, the Chief Executive Officer of Global Media Alliance, Ernest Boateng said: “I am already thrilled about the level of online and offline engagements this particular edition has generated. We have moved a step ahead, I can confidently say.
“The special thing about this edition is the encouragement from public participation, apart from the input of our jury – which is a standard practice we have with GBA. It matters to us that we have involved the public since our beverages end up on their tables anyway. As organisers, we are looking forward to a spectacular night and good interaction, great fun and a celebration of good work done,” he added.
Last year, Guinness Ghana Limited emerged top winner when it walked away with the Product of the Year and Beer of the Year awards. The Ghana Beverage Awards are held in partnership with the Consumer Protection Agency, Food Research Institute, Food and Beverage Association of Ghana, Ghana Tourism Authority, the Ministry of Tourism Arts and Culture, and Ghana Drinking Bar Operators Association.
