The GRAPAS Innovation Award

Milling and Grain magazine, the oldest milling magazine still in print – and first published in 1891 – is once again holding the GRAPAS Innovation Awards at GRAPAS Europe and Victam International 2026.

The Award will be made to the most innovative and economically beneficial equipment, process or service in the milling of grains and cereals for food production at GRAPAS Europe 2026.

All GRAPAS Innovation Award recipients will be published in an edition of Milling and Grain magazine along with a review of the event itself. This issue will not only reach MAG print readers, but will be promoted widely through the magazine's social media to ensure maximum awareness of the Award winner within the milling industry globally.

Nominations are being called for from all sectors of food milling and from non-exhibiting and exhibiting companies alike. Those shortlisted for the Award, will have the opportunity to display their product in a special award’s area at the entrance to the exhibition hall for all visitors to view. 

Entries can be made from one of three categories:

  • A milling technology development (for flour, rice or other cereal)
  • A production process or refinement that makes for more efficient and/or safe production of food
  • A service (online or otherwise) that helps millers achieve their goals more efficiently
