Nominations open for CAC awards

Nominations are now open for the Coffee Association of Canada’s (CAC) inaugural awards programme. Winners will be announced at the CAC’s annual Conference on Thursday 9 November in Toronto. 

“It’s time to acknowledge the people and organisations who are exemplifying excellence in the coffee community,” said Robert Carter, CAC President. “We want to celebrate the pioneers who have led the way in the coffee industry in Canada, and also the innovators and new and growing up-and-comers who are already making an impact!” 

The 2023 CAC Awards categories include: 

Lifetime Achievement Award – The CAC’s highest recognition for an individual whose extraordinary and ground-breaking contribution(s) has been a driving force of positive change and has had a significant, profound, and lasting impact on the coffee community. 

Innovative Achievement of the Year – This Award recognises a company, product or service that the Canadian coffee industry widely views as a progressive achievement that will positively benefit the future of coffee. Bonus if there is a goodwill aspect (eg charity component, environmental or sustainability impact). 

Small Chain – Big Impact Award – A coffee business with a minimum of 3 and a maximum 40 locations in Canada that is creating a buzz in the industry – from a marketing, product innovation, diversity & inclusion, charitable or other perspective.
