The International Beverage Awards, in association with FoodBev Media, took place at Drink Japan on June 27th, 2018 in Tokyo, Japan. The judging panel considered 84 entries from 14 countries and Ecolean® Air and Ecolean® Air Aseptic were announced as winners in the category of Best new technology innovation.
The award highlights Ecolean's lighter approach, which is visible when using less raw material and less energy than most, producing lightweight packaging solutions suitable for liquid food, for ambient and chilled distribution.
FoodBev Media group editor Alex Clere said: "The International Beverage Awards bring together FoodBev’s expertise in hosting leading industry awards schemes with the reputation and gravitas of Drink Japan, one of Asia’s leading beverage events. We are therefore very excited to have presented the winners with their trophies".
"As this is the very first International Beverage Awards, we are both impressed and humbled by the calibre of entries. Between them, the finalists and winners have demonstrated innovative new packaging technologies, exciting beverage ideas, and a greener way forward for the beverage industry. Winning an ‘International Beverage Award’ is an accolade that cannot be underestimated", said Alex Clere.
