“We are delighted to have been nominated as a finalist for the Reformulation Award and to have won the important F&B Innovation Award! This year, Griffith Foods Europe has taken some important steps to strengthen its profile in the European market. The two nominations, and especially winning one of these awards have played a vital part in that process. Besides being a network enabler, the F&B Innovation Award has put the spotlight on our capabilities to innovate for and develop with the European protein and savory snacks producers. Our ambition is to be considered as the Delicious & Nutritious food company, as an innovator, as a collaborator and as experts in Taste, Texture, Health & Nutrition. Receiving industry recognition by winning this Fi Innovation Award is driving awareness, creates commercial opportunities and brings pride to our entire workforce!"
