The awards are a part of Food Forum India, arguably the country’s largest congregation of global and Indian food retailers, manufacturers, organisations and minds in the food-and-beverage businesses. Food Forum India as a concept was launched by Subodh Kant Sahai, minister of food processing industries, government of India.

Flagging off the awards ceremony, Sahai said, “We are learning from the private retail players and trying to bring about an investment-friendly policy for you. I congratulate all the participants and the organisers for taking the interest and initiative in organising the Food Forum on such a huge scale. I also request the food-and-grocery retailers to work on something so that the farmers can be a part of the development of the sector. Growing demand from the retailers will lead the farmers to perform better. The retail sector players are the new leaders of the farming community.”

The Coca-Cola Golden Spoon Awards 2008 were decided on the basis of a comprehensive analysis of:
• Voting from consumers through a pan-India survey in six leading metros and tier I cities
• Voting from leading industry experts in the field of food-and-beverage and food-and-grocery retailing
• Self-nominations by various players which included information on key variables such as retail presence in terms of number of outlets/geographic coverage, operational retail space, turnover, growth in the last one year, new formats introduced, new marketing initiatives, and communication
• Final jury voting comprising global consulting firms and leading industry observers and analysts
