Official Independent Adjudicator
Professional services consultancy Deloitte is the official independent adjudicator of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. Deloitte has been granted full and independent access to The World’s 50 Best Restaurants voting process and data and has performed certain procedures to confirm the integrity and authenticity of the voting process and the resulting list.
In order to guarantee a fair relationship between the percentage of votes a region receives and their proportionate representation in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, in the event of a significant variance, Deloitte will apply a normalisation process to the voting data.
