Salute to Excellence: SPAR International wins two PLMA awards

September 23, 2020 IN THE CATEGORY: Awards and prizes

SPAR International is delighted to have won two Salute to Excellence Awards. The highly coveted industry awards are organised by the Private Label Manufacturers Association (PLMA) and recognise excellence in private label innovation. In the savoury snacking category, the jury favoured SPAR’s Quinoa & Chia Rice Tubes, while SPAR Natural Organic Biodegradable Coffee Capsules Espresso came out on top in the coffee category. 

The 2020 PLMA Salute to Excellence Awards are based on the determination of judges as to concept, appearance, texture/smell, presentation, and value for money.  Nearly 550 products from 70 retailers from 23 countries covering 72 categories were considered by PLMA’s international panel of judges. Judging took place 25 and 26 August 2020, replacing the usual judging at the PLMA show held each year in May.

SPAR Quinoa & Chia Rice Tubes
The awarded Quinoa & Chia Rice Tubes are part of a new range of crunchy healthier chips products, launched this year as healthier options in the snacking category. The range includes Salted Hummus Pea Chips, Quinoa & Chia Rice Tubes with Sour Cream & Chives flavour and Lentil Wavy Squares with Tomato & Basil flavour. The full range is suitable for vegans and 100% gluten and palm-oil free.

SPAR Natural Organic Biodegradable Coffee Capsules Espresso
SPAR Natural Organic Biodegradable Coffee Capsules Espresso are part of SPAR International SPAR Natural Capsules range. These 100% biodegradable coffee capsules come packaged in a sleek, recyclable cardboard container that showcases the distinct neutral colour palette of the range.
