DUG wins prestigiousaward
Just recently, the World Food Innovation Awards 2021 took place. An event that celebrates innovation across all food and beverage categories – and quite the big deal in the sustainable food industry. This year, the competition was exceptionally stiff with a whopping 276 entries, from 22 countries, across 26 different categories.
Best Allergy-Friendly Product
Despite competing against many strong and established brands, a highly distinguished panel of judges crowned DUG winner in the Best Allergy-Friendly Product category. We’re advocates for sustainable alternatives that everyone can enjoy, so we’re very happy to receive this particular award for DUG.
The good news didn’t stop there, though. DUG was also granted the honourable Highly Commended award (second place) as Best Plant-Based Beverage. As we’re really proud of the taste and qualities of our plant-based drinks, this is certainly the icing on the cake. Our products were also nominated finalist in two other categories: Best CSR/Sustainability Initiative and Best Health or Wellness Drink.
Here’s what our CEO Thomas said after receiving the news:
“I’m very happy that DUG won the award for Best Allergy-Friendly Product. And I’m equally excited that people share the opinion that we have created a great tasting drink from potatoes.”
