We are dedicated to developing the Estonian food and beverage sector in Estonia and are responsible for organising the Silverspoon Gala. Our purpose is to be a long-term sustainable society to bring benefits, support and recognise the culinary sector of Estonia.

PwC which organises the evaluation of the contest helps organisations and private persons to create value in important fields.
