    The Food & Nutrition Awards are now presented with some changes, but maintain the objective of mobilizing society for innovation, promoting healthy lifestyles and eating habits, and consumer education.
    Award winners of 2014 will be revealed on October 16, World Food Day, at a ceremony in the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon.  Winners will be able to use the first stamps of Food & Nutrition Awards, a tool for marketing and communication, which amplifies the reputation of the initiative and supports the innovative and distinctive character of the products and services available to all Portuguese.
