Ecopouch® by Scelta Mushrooms won the Innoval Award for best international product at Alimentaria, thus repeating the success recorded with the same award in 2014, for its vegetable appetizers.
Mushrooms in Ecopouch® are produced via a unique procedure whereby mushrooms, after being packed, are boiled in their own juice. No chemical additives and salt are being used. The result is a product that combines the best of fresh and preserved mushrooms: clean label, shelf stable mushrooms in pouch packaging with long shelf life and fresh taste and texture.
Innoval is a major showcase at Alimentaria where innovations in the food and drinks industry from the participating companies are presented. During the presentation of the Innoval Awards, the jury announced the best innovations from 9 different categories. After a selection procedure in which all products have been tested by a renowned panel of judges, mushrooms in Ecopouch® have been rewarded with the International Award for best international product at Innoval 2016.
