The National Restaurant Association is now accepting applications for the 2014 FABI Awards.

The FABI Awards program recognizes food and beverage manufacturers who "advance the industry through innovation in ingredients, preparation, processing and/or packaging."

An independent panel of expert judges will select the award recipients, which will be showcased at NRA Show 2014, taking place May 17-20 at Chicago's McCormick Place.

"Successful operators continually seek and adopt new products that reflect consumer trends, are highly marketable and can add incremental value and benefits to their operations," said Mary Pat Heftman, EVP, Convention & Strategic Alliances, NRA. "The FABI Awards were created to identify emerging products that operators can use to enhance their business."

The deadline to apply for the 2014 FABI Awards is Jan. 10. To be considered, all food and beverage products (new food or beverage product can include the packaging or delivery system) must be introduced in the U.S. foodservice marketplace between Jan. 1, 2013, and May 17, 2014. The product must meet four criteria:

  • Unique with meaningful differentiation
  • Superior to directly competing products
  • Documentation for claims made and proof of performance
  • Deliver significant benefit(s) to targeted operators as judged by the panel
