Winners of the 2013 InnoBev Sustainability Awards were announced on 16th of April at an industry gala dinner in Warsaw.
The awards were a highlight of the 9th InnoBev Global Beverages Congress organised by Zenith International, supported by FoodBev Media and sponsored by Aptar.
Winners included Coca Cola for Best Recycling Initiative and Unilever for Best Ethical Sourcing. The winners were selected by the editorial team of FoodBev.com.
After presenting the awards, Zenith International Chairman Richard Hall commented “The winners stood out because they are scrutinising every last drop of oil and water to reduce energy and waste by millions of tonnes. They are also sharing ideas and science to improve developing economies and create new materials. Soft drinks are leading the way for all consumer products”.
