FrieslandCampina Kievit wins FiE Innovation Award

December 3, 2015

FrieslandCampina Kievit, global supplier of premium ingredients to the world’s most loved food and beverage brands, is proud to announce that it has won the FiE Innovation Award 2015 in the category ‘Best Beverage Innovation’.

The FiE Innovation Award celebrates companies that carry the torch of innovation in a time when innovation in the food industry is challenged by financial pressure, regulatory barriers and consumer distrust. Being a finalist for two products is an important endorsement in the market; the success of the two innovations is also confirmed by the very positive feedback at the FiE booth.

Double nomination

The FiE Innovation Awards jury recognized the innovative nature and added value of FrieslandCampina Kievit products in two areas: Vana-Cappa 26W has won the FiE Innovation Award in the category ‘Best Beverage Innovation’ and Vana-Monte DP96 was nominated as a finalist in the category ‘Best Bakery Innovation’. This is a fantastic recognition of great multidisciplinary cooperation and a huge team effort.

Vana-Cappa 26W – Best Beverage Innovation

Vana-Cappa 26W is an ‘extra texture’ foaming creamer that meets consumer needs for an indulgent café-style coffee at home. It turns an instant Italian-style coffee into an indulgent experience with improved foam texture, structure, stability, and a delicious taste. The real thing in instant! Vana-Cappa 26W is based on non-HVO refined coconut oil and meets consumer needs regarding health consciousness and more natural ingredients.

Vana-Monte DP96 – Nominated finalist in Bakery Innovation

Vana®-Monte DP96 is the first whipping agent made of refined non-HVO vegetable oils for Cake Filling-, Desserts- and Italian Ice Cream applications. With its non-HVO coconut oil, palm-free emulsifier, low E-number count and low TFA composition, the product responds to the health and clean label trend with clear enhancement of a clean taste and a creamy light texture to create a delicious end product.
