The National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show announced the 2022 recipients of the Food and Beverage (FABI) Awards, which recognize companies for developing extraordinary food and beverage products that are leading the way in new tastes, flavor profiles, creativity and their potential to boost sales. Each award recipient and their product will be highlighted throughout the exhibit halls at the 2022 National Restaurant Association Restaurant, taking place May 21-24, 2022, at McCormick Place in Chicago.

"FABI Awardees never disappoint when it comes to creativity, inventiveness, and of course—taste!" said Tom Cindric, president of Winsight Exhibitions. "No matter your role in foodservice, you can find inspiration in these products. Whether it be optimizing your menu with more plant-based options, exploring flavors from other countries or seeing how classic brands are reimagining flavors, these products answer the question "what's next for foodservice?' We can't wait to have our community back together in two short months to taste these revolutionary new products in person!"

Each FABI Award submission was evaluated by an independent panel of judges from across the foodservice industry who represent some of the most well-known brands and organizations. The award recipients are selected for their exciting new tastes, uniqueness in the market, appeal to the operator community, creative approach to operator challenges, or introduction of new opportunities and profit potential.
