Grupo Bimbo invites the scientific community to participate in the Bimbo Pan-American Nutrition, Food Science and Technology Award. This award is part of the "Committed to Your Health" program and addresses the Bimbo's concern to improve the health and nutrition of the population by furthering scientific research.
The Pan-American Nutrition Award 2010 recognizes the best research papers of the year in the fields of human nutrition and food science and technology. Awarded only bi-annually, the awards are granted to both established professionals and young scientists in the four zones served by Grupo Bimbo: the United States of America, Mexico, Central America and South America. The deadline for submissions is October 15th 2010.
In order to determine the zone for each paper, the country to which the institution conducting the investigation belongs to, will be considered.
An independent Scientific Jury from each geographical zone, composed of renowned researchers and experts in human nutrition, food science and technology, will rate the submitted projects based on the evaluation criteria. The project from each region, category and discipline with the highest rating, will win the award.
