2019 Innobev Awards finalists announced

Press release - Thursday 02 May 2019

The finalists for the 2019 InnoBev Awards are published today. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony during the UK Soft Drinks Conference on 15th May in London.

The awards are organised by global food and drink experts Zenith Global, with support from headline sponsor EXBERRY® plus category sponsors Anton Paar, Bericap, PureCircle, Tetra Pak, CO2 Sustain and WET Group.

“There has been an explosion of innovation in soft drinks,” commented Zenith Global Chairman Richard Hall, “and this has been reflected in an extraordinary array of entries for these awards.

“In one direction, new launches are more natural, healthy, artisanal, ethical, local and personal. In another, they’re adding more scientific and functional benefits. At the same time, we’re seeing new designs, new flavours, new pack sizes, new pack materials, recycled content and reformulated ingredients, especially sweeteners.”
