Filippo Berio is delighted to announce four wins at The Grocer Magazine’s prestigious New Product & Packaging Awards 2023.
In a fiercely competitive field featuring over 200 FMCG products across 38 categories, Filippo Berio’s newly launched Olive Pasta Sauce won the Gold Medal in the magazine’s Cooking Sauces & Meal Kits awards category.
But the accolades didn’t stop there.
The Grocer magazine is the ‘bible’ of the UK’s grocer trade and Filippo Berio received further praise from The Grocer Magazine’s judging panel, receiving Silver Medals for both its Basilico and Chargrilled Vegetable pasta sauces, as well as a Bronze Medal for its Arrabbiata pasta sauce.
Despite fierce competition from industry giants such as Heinz, Itsu, and Sosu Gochujang, Filippo Berio’s products distinguished themselves with their exceptional quality, innovative packaging, and commitment to sustainability.
