Prizes were also awarded by cooperating editorial teams, along with Memorial Certificates of the Agrarian Chamber of the CR and a total of nine local producers received the Regional Food award of the South Moravian Region.
The objective of the Grand Prix contest is to show appreciation of innovative trade fair exhibits meeting the contest parameters. The successful exhibitors received awards from Minister of Agriculture, Marian Jurečka, Managing Director of BVV Trade Fairs Brno, Jiří Kuliš and Chairman of the Evaluation Committee, Jiří Mašek, who shortly assessed this year‘s edition as follows: „Just like the Minister of Agriculture, I have been coming here on a regular basis since 1994, I follow the Grand Prix contest and I am always interested to see which exhibits will win an award. This year, close to 100 exhibits have been entered, the 15-member committee selected 59 nominations resulting in 13 awardees. I strongly believe that all these awards, be it nominations and Grand Prix awards, will contribute to increased sales.“
