The Coca Cola Golden Spoon Awards -- IMAGES awards for excellence in food retailing, were part of the ongoing annual food industry conclave Food Forum India at The Renaissance, Mumbai. Incepted in 2008 by the IMAGES Group, Food Forum India is India's largest gathering of food manufacturers, marketers, retailers and support organisations in India, and includes an exhibition, conferences and the awards ceremony. Year 2010 marks the third year for both Food Forum India and the Coca Cola Golden Spoon Awards.
During fiscal 2009-10, Cafe Coffee Day has taken its retail presence to 882 outlets across the country, which is a growth of nearly 16 per cent over the previous fiscal year. The chain was ranked as the most likely winner by the industry due to its continuous and significant marketing initiatives through the year.
Besides CCD, 12 other food & grocery retailers, F&B brands and professionals received trophies in recognition of their achievements in the past year at the awards ceremony.
