19 Sep The Empeltre One of OliBa Green Beer, SIAL Innovation 2022 award for the best alcoholic drink
OliBa Green Beer, the first green beer with olives in the world, has been recognised at the SIAL Innovation 2022 awards in Paris as the most innovative alcoholic beverage. Its variety The Empeltre One, made naturally with olives from Lower Aragon, was voted winner by a jury of experts from the food sector, who assessed aspects such as naturality, originality and adaptation to new market trends.
Among the diverse array of products competing for the 15 prizes in innovation, the variety The Empeltre One from OliBa Green Beer (a Costa Group brand) was selected in the alcoholic beverage section, where it competed against more than 100 international candidates. The awards ceremony will take place in the French capital this coming 15 October, coinciding with the course of the SIAL International Salon, to be held from 15 to 19 of the same month at the Parc des Expositions of Paris-Nord Villepinte, where OliBa Green Beer will also participate through the agricultural holding Costa Food Group, to which it has belonged since January 2022.
Ivan Caelles, CEO of OliBa Green Beer, comments that “for OliBa Green Beer, it is a fantastic piece of news which will allow us to increase our international fame with a different, original gourmet product which surprises the conventional beer consumer. This award motivates us to continue doing what we like: experimenting and committing ourselves to the distinctive value of our beer”.
