Superior Taste Award 2017
The “iTQi Superior Taste Award”, a stamp of quality in taste!
The iTQi Superior Taste Award is the only international certificate for taste endorsed by experts – Michelin starred Chefs and Sommeliers.
Above all, it is a guarantee of buying a product recognized for its gustative qualities; while for producers, it is a valuable and efficient communication tool to differentiate their products, uplift their brand images and attract new clients.
Tasting sessions gather some 135 Sommeliers and Chefs every year – the true opinion leaders in taste quality, who have composed the iTQi’s Jury. This Jury is unique in the world because of its cautious selection process and its exceptional qualification:
It is selected on an exclusive partnership with 15 prestigious culinary organizations in Europe such as the Maîtres Cuisiniers and l’Académie Culinaire de France, the Academy of Culinary Arts, Euro-Toques, the Federazione Italiana Cuochi, the Associaciones des Cocineros de España, the Verband der Köche Deutschlands and the Association de la Sommellerie Internationale (ASI).
