Genuine Coconut from Spain wins the FRUIT LOGISTICA Innovation Award
Berlin, 5 February 2016 – The trade visitors at FRUIT LOGISTICA in Berlin have spoken: World’s Coconut Trading, a company from Spain, has won the FRUIT LOGISITICA Innovation Award 2016 with its organic Genuine Coconut. Genuine Coconut comes with a patented seal and straw, and is a simple, genuinely refreshing coconut water drink with minerals and a high nutritional value. Thai Nam Hom coconuts are organically cultivated in the heart of Thailand and are regarded as first choice due to their quality, taste and smell.
“We are happy and proud. Thank you FRUIT LOGISTICA! This is a great reward for three years of hard work, passion and excitement involved in bringing Genuine Coconut to market“, said Carlos Amoros of World’s Coconut Trading.
Visitors at FRUIT LOGISTICA chose the Northern Greens Kitchen Minis tomato from Denmark as the competition’s runner-up. This is a small, compact and visually attractive cherry tomato plant that produces up to 150 fruits in all seasons and grows to only 11 centimetres wide and 35 centimetres high. The tomatoes weigh only eight to ten grams. This cherry tomato is sweet tasting and aromatic and can encourage children and younger consumers to eat more vegetables.
Visitors chose Enjoya, a yellow/red striped pepper grown by the Dutch enterprise Terra Natura International as the third-best entry. Enjoya has an aromatic and tangy flavour and contains lots of vitamin C. It is available in various sizes, is a colourful addition to salads and with the right dip is also ideal as a snack.
For the first time the jury also presented a special award, which went to Stoffels from Belgium for its Automato tomato vending machine. This machine dispenses differently coloured cherry tomatoes from three boxes into a paper bag. Automato is hygienic and an interactive alternative for young consumers which encourages them to buy vegetables.
