After a long day of high powered conferences, knowledge workshops, expert chef sessions, business networking and exhibitions… the evening was a time to sit back and get some wholesome entertainment as the industry celebrated excellence in the business of food. The glorious awards evening was kicked off  with some uber energy by SHAZNEEN, a versatile singer, blending different genres of music. The evening was hosted by Shaili Chopra, a formidable, high-profile journalist with nearly twelve years of experience in television anchoring, reporting and writing columns. Leading Comedian SAURABH PANT left the audience in splits with his intelligent comedy.

Talking about the 8th Annual Coca Cola Golden Spoon Awards, Amitabh Taneja, Chief Convenor of India Food Forum said, “India’s most prestigious accolades for food and food service retailers, were launched in the year 2008 to acknowledge the rising importance of modern food & grocery retail, and its crucial role in the evolution of effective marketing & distribution of food and grocery brands in the country”.

For eight years, India Food Forum has been aiming to develop and nurture the food retail business in India through industry engagement, debates, knowledge workshops and recognition. The objective is to not just support in thought, but also enable businesses to get together and develop workable partnerships.

“This year, we’ve added another chapter to the prestigious platform – India Food Retail Tech. The impact of technology on human lives is everywhere. Including what consumers choose to put on their plates. Not just because it’s changed the way they cook or what they eat, but even more because it’s changed who they are, how they think, what they want and why”.

“On the other side, food retailers and foodservice operators are scrambling to decipher this new age of consumer behaviours and desires. But, consider this: Wherever they may choose to transact today — physical or online spaces — consumers leave ‘footprints’, in the form of in-store behaviour, page views, abandoned carts, social media chatter, among a thousand other tiny tell-tales. From tech-savvy millennials to aging boomers, the ways in which consumers gather information in their path to purchase are multiple, but they CAN be mined. And optimised to deliver ‘WOW’ experiences!”

“Retailers now are all too aware of the benefits of engaging consumers through technology. They know that the explosion of e-commerce destinations and digital media has created an incredibly urgent need to monitor shopper behaviour in real time. Insights need to be drawn as events happen, and executed before the next lost sale or an out-of-stock situation happens.”

And that’s what India Food Retail Tech looks to deliver to all of you, the tools and knowledge to make it happen”.
