When registering products, you will be asked to agree with our evaluation rules. Nothing crazy, just a few simple rules to ensure we can test products in the best conditions and that we are aligned about the conditions to obtain and use the Superior Taste Award certification.Download the complete Evaluation rules
After product registration for the evaluation, it is your responsibility to have the samples delivered to the International Taste Institute. The International Taste Institute will not assess the shipping process and cannot be held responsible for the sample shipment.
Please respect above mentioned deadlines, taking into account enough time for shipment & custom clearance (which can take up to 15 days at Belgian customs). Every year, we unfortunately have to cancel evaluations due to late arrival of samples.
Please send enough products to prepare 24 helpings.
For drinks, please follow the following guidelines:
Please indicate the corresponding product REFERENCE ID (ex:9022639) on each sample. Please avoid writing this REFERENCE ID on the front packaging, so we can take a nice picture of your product. You can find the REFERENCE ID on the invoice you have received by email following your registration or you can download this invoice in the “my invoices” section of your account.
Delivery costs, taxes, import and custom duties for shipment of samples are at your expense. Should any of those costs be invoiced to the Taste Institute, we will re-invoice you for this cost.
