Unique approach

Monde Selection is not like other contests or competitions.

Your product is not compared with other products in its category.

Our experts assess the intrinsic quality of each product as a whole, according to very precise and very varied criteria.

Independent experts

Since 1961 Monde Selection collaborates with over 70 eminent experts such as Michelin stared chefs, world renowned oenologists, university professors, brewing engineers, nutritionists, dieticians,...

A more objective evaluation

The scientific and legal approach of the evaluation procedures has been at the heart of the activity of the Institute since its creation.

The mission of our scientific committee is to verify the correspondence between the nutritional qualities of a product and the announced commercial claims. Laboratory analyses may be carried out to complete the evaluation.

Our evaluation methodology

The criteria and evaluation parameters vary according to the different types of products but are always part of a global approach.

Thus, our experts must not only judge the taste, smell, visual aspect and all the classical organoleptic criteria but must also take into account the information provided for the consumers, the ingredients used, innovation, packaging and the veracity of the commercial claims.

For this mission, Monde Selection may count on the support and the collaboration of certified laboratories and independent institutions who can carry out any additional nutritional, chemical and bacteriological tests.

The final result of the evaluation is calculated on the basis of the average points awarded by each jury member in a totally independent manner.
