On Friday night the 2016 Food & Beverage Industry Awards was held in Sydney and I’m so incredibly proud to announce that we won 2 awards ?? including the Best of The Best (is there a better award to win?)!
The Food & Beverage Industry Awards are held annually and celebrates the best innovations in the food and beverage industry in Australia. We were amongst fierce competition from start-ups to large established multinational food and beverage businesses.
It was an absolutely fantastic night and we were so proud to be there amongst many amazing businesses and stand-out people. The event was MC’d by the one and only Larry Emdur who was also incredibly entertaining. A big thank you to all of our amazing customers all around Australia, as well as to the judges, Food and Beverage Magazine and to the event organisers.
So what awards did we win?
Label and Packaging Design Award
This award was taken out by the original Protein Bread Loaf which is packed in a unique, stand up carton that sits in your fridge much like a milk carton. The packaging features a cardboard outer designed to protect the product. In addition, the stand-up Protein Bread carton looks fantastic, provides a unique shelf presence and clearly highlights the product and its key features being High Protein, Low Carb and Gluten Free.
Best of the Best Award
We are incredibly proud to have our Protein Bread Loaf voted “Best of the Best” by the judges.
