The Superior Taste Award is judged by a panel of experts at the International Taste and Quality Institute. Products are evaluated by renowned European chefs and sommeliers from culinary institutions in blind tests, based on taste, aroma, texture, and product appearance. The awards were this year presented at a ceremony in Brussels on June 14th.

“We’re extremely proud that our products have been recognised and awarded by the Superior Taste Award Institute. This is a great success for Podravka in an extremely strong competition of international brands. Innovation and recognising the needs of our customers are the foundations on which we develop new products, and these awards validate our hard work. They’re also an incentive to develop new products and tastes for our customers around the world.” Said Ivana Kozbur of Podravka’s Culinary Development Department, at this year’s ceremony.

Podravka has been participating in the Superior Taste Award since 2008, winning awards for quality, taste, and product design year after year. From 2008 to 2017, Podravka's products have been awarded 91 Superior Taste Awards.
