The Ghana Beverage Awards organiser, Global Media Alliance, has officially announced the closure of its nominations slot for the awards scheme’s 7th edition.

This year’s nominations were opened right after the launch on January 13, 2023 officially closed on February 26, 2023. The opening of nominations was done to give opportunity for beverage companies and the public to nominate commendable beverage brands under the various categories. Currently, they have received about 700 nominations inclusive of both brand nominations and public nominations.

Subsequently, the process’ voting phase will be open for specific categories, and organisers are urging all Ghanaians to fully partake in the voting – which is just as significant as the nominations.

Speaking on the closure of nominations, Ernest Boateng, CEO-GMA Group, emphasised his gratitude to Ghanaians and the beverage companies for their collective support and consistent contribution over the years, in the nomination phase and awards scheme as a whole.

“The Ghana Beverage Awards has for the past 7 years relied heavily on the general public and the beverage companies’ participation in nominating their best brands and products for recognition, and we have never been disappointed. The general acceptance of this awards scheme by all is an important step for us as organisers, and we will continue to count on you in making it a success.”

He reiterated that this year’s GBA saw the introduction of two new categories: Beverage Campaign of the Year and Indigenous Beverage Brand of the Year. This inclusion was done to reward and acknowledge innovation and creativity in curating compelling strategies and campaigns, in a bid to emphasise the overall growth and improvement of our indigenous beverages over time.

He added that: “Global Media Alliance is committed in promoting efforts of the Ghanaian beverage industry, and also dedicated in drawing attention to deserving local brands for the international market. He said: “Our theme, ‘Inspiring Excellence in Ghana’s Beverage Industry’, continues to be the benchmark we seek to attain every year; and without any doubt it continues to uplift and inspire smaller brands to attain certain levels of excellence within the beverage industry, and additionally contribute their quota in building the Ghanaian economy”.

Mr. Boateng ended by saying: “This year’s awards ceremony is set to take place in late April at the Kempinski Gold Coast Hotel, Accra, and will bring together industry players, relevant stakeholders as well as nominated brands to network and celebrate excellence in the beverage industry”.
