On Monday May 29th Monde Selection's Annual Awards Ceremony has been held in Malta in one of Valletta’s most remarkable landmarks – the Mediterranean Conference Centre. More than 500 executives from 225 companies have travelled to Malta for the occasion. In 2017, around 3000 products from 89 countries have been granted a Monde Selection Quality Award.
The International Quality Institute, Monde Selection, has organised its 56th Annual Awards Ceremony in the Mediterranean Conference Centre. This 16th century monument located towards the tip of Valletta’s peninsula is recognized for its magnificent views across the Grand Harbour.
The Annual Awards Ceremony
The official event started with the Trophies Ceremony. This special moment is dedicated to honour the fidelity of our partners by granting them the 25 and 10 years trophies.
The very prestigious 25 Years Trophy – conferred to companies that have participated and been awarded at Monde Selection for 25 consecutive years – has been granted to the Japanese company Hakuryu Syuzou Co., Ltd.
In addition, this year, 42 companies have been awarded the Crystal Prestige Trophy, which is granted to the companies that have been awarded at Monde Selection for 10 consecutive years (see the awarded companies).
Afterwards, the Chairman Mr. de Halleux and the Jury President invited the company representatives on stage to hand them over the quality awards, diplomas and for several of them the “International High Quality Trophy”. This trophy granted 353 times this year rewards the products for achieving a Gold or Grand Gold quality award for three consecutive years.
The day ended with the Cocktail and the Gala Dinner where traditional Maltese dancers performed a spectacular show.
Monde Selection’s Organizing Committee, juries and staff thank you all for your fidelity and for making this day such a fabulous event.
We hope to welcome you next year!
