In order to ensure that the judging is completely impartial, each jury member must fill in a tasting sheet individually and independently. There are specific sheets for each type of product and they may include up to 20 different parameters of analysis.
The jury is made up of a minimum of 8 experts and a jury chairperson who has many years experience of working with Monde Selection.
In order to obtain objective judgement of the quality of the product, the final result is calculated on the basis of the average points given by the different jury members.
The evaluation procedure not only takes into account sensory qualities such as general taste, aroma, texture, flavour, sensation in the mouth or any other relevant organoleptic criteria, but also other important parameters for the consumer such as ingredients used, clarity of information about the composition of the product, packaging, user-friendliness for preparations, instruction sheets, etc.
Thus, it is not just a simple blind tasting but rather an overall analysis of the quality of the product.
