The concern to offer more sustainable products and packaging, as well as the blending of cultures, also continues to grow in the offering, which I love because it's so in tune with today's reality,” Isabele Marquis, senior food strategist and co-chair of the competition.

Applications were open to products launched in January 2023 and after.

The products were required to offer something new or different from what is currently available in the Canadian market while having the potential to expand to several markets, among other criteria.
