South Australian based Beston Global Foods has walked away from this year’s World Beverage Innovation Awards a winner with its Immune+ drink, which uses the milk protein lactoferrin as a major ingredient.
The winners and finalists were announced during a virtual ceremony on 11 November 2020. The judging panel took into consideration 279 entries from 25 different countries across 22 award categories.
“We are absolutely delighted to win such a prestigious award in light of the number of globally recognised brands and a suite of new, innovative products,” Beston’s CEO Jonathan Hicks said in an article published in farmonline.
“The Immune+ drink is formulated with lactoferrin produced at our Jervois SA facility, which we are currently upgrading to produce a minimum of 12 tonnes per annum.”
Beston is expected to launch Immune+ in Australia later this year and is holding discussions with international distributors.
Beston currently purchases and processes more than 20 percent of South Australian produced milk.
