05 Oct “Salute to Excellence” award for white beans with shiitake mushrooms
Autor Foods white beans with shiitake mushrooms have won the “Salute to Excellence 2020” award. It’s an international award organized by the Private Label Manufacturers Association (PLMA), which distinguishes retailers for innovation and quality in creating products under their own brands.
The award was for the white beans with shiitake mushrooms we produce for Consum under its distributor brand. Our pre-cooked pulse combination achieved this recognition under the main dish category. These white beans with shiitake mushrooms were competing against more than 500 products from 70 retailers in 23 different countries.
The candidates underwent an evaluation by a professional panel representing the retail market, manufacturing, marketing and sales and marketing journalism. They had to vote based on very specific characteristics: the taste, look, presentation and quality/price ratio of the products.
These were some of the panel’s comments on our beans:
✔️ The best product in the category. I love it!
✔️ A great product, real innovation. Well done!
✔️ A good combination.
✔️ The combination of pulses with shiitake mushrooms is truly innovative.
These words fully back the Autor Foods business project and the entire team’s good work. “These types of awards help us earn credibility and solvency among the most relevant players in our sector,” said José Luis Diez, Managing Director of Autor Foods. “I want to thank the entire team for their effort and the implication they demonstrate every day to improve our project”, he added.
On the other hand, the PLMA organizers said they were proud to be able to “pay homage to retailers and the winning products of the year, which reflect their growing commitment to excellence in quality and customer satisfaction”.
