Next-generation FRESHQ® wins the prestigious “Food Tech Innovation Award” at the world’s largest food & beverage event.
A leading panel of industry experts selected Chr. Hansen’s FRESHQ® concept at this year’s prize-giving at Food Ingredients Europe in Frankfurt, Germany. The award is presented to a company that is breaking new ground in the food and beverage industry with an innovative, technical solution. Chr. Hansen’s next-generation FRESHQ® food cultures hit the bull’s eye in that context, removing the main technical barrier for the implementation of fermentation-enabled bio-protection to help reduce food waste.
After proudly accepting the award Marianne Gregersen, commercial development manager, Chr. Hansen, said: “We are very happy that the jury of food experts acknowledges the game-changing qualities of our next-generation of FRESHQ®. This innovation brings fermentation-enabled bioprotection to the dairy producers, who need it the most; making it possible to fight food waste in regions where cold chains can be challenged. The award motivates us, even more, to keep pushing the boundaries of fermentation.”
