Every year The Good Food & Wine Show hands out stand awards to encourage its exhibitors to put in an effort when it comes to their stands, product and service. It has paid huge dividends this year for the more than 150 exhibitors who showcased the latest in food and kitchen trends at the Cape Town show which took place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre until Sunday.

The judges were journalist Clayton Morar; Kia Johnson of Dagbreek TV and 2000FM and Naushad Khan, editor of Next 48 Hours and 48 Hours TV.
“It was clear that some of the exhibitors had put a huge amount of thought and effort into their stands,” said Johnson. “I particularly liked Lady Bonin’s Tea Parlour, a small stand, which was hugely appealing thanks to its welcoming design and the owner’s clear passion which shone through.”
The Domestos stand in which visitors got to eat food off the floor, proving that it was not only clean but germ free, really made an impression on Khan. “It is a simply brilliant concept.”
