Island Innovator Wins Food "Oscar"


Island Innovator Wins Food "Oscar"

The Food Technology Centre proudly congratulates Island Abbey Foods Ltd. on winning the Global SIAL d’OR award with their Honibe™ Honey Drop™ product. SIAL (Salon International de l’Alimentation) is held in Paris every two years and is the world’s largest food tradeshow. The Honey Drop™ was selected as the best new food product to come to market in the last two years from a product field of over 250 of the world’s best new food products. We are proud to acknowledge that John Rowe of Island Abbey Foods contracted FTC’s technical services to help develop the Honey Drop™ and then provided pilot plant space to manufacture the products for sale until the company graduated to their own manufacturing facility.
