Premium snack brand Ten Acre has been awarded first prize in a prestigious European competition for food innovation – the INN’awards.
The judging panel included senior executives from Carrefour, Delhaize, Intermarché, Nielsen and other industry leaders; and there was strong competition from Dr Oetker, Coca-Cola Enterprises, PepsiCo, Hain Celestial – just four from a distinguished list of entrants.
Tony Goodman, CEO of Yumsh Snacks Ltd – the creators of Ten Acre, said: “We are delighted to have won such a prestigious international competition with our Ten Acre Strawberry & Cream Popcorn, recognising that real flavour innovation can succeed alongside the quest for great tasting products that meet all dietary needs.”
Ten Acre’s Free From ‘Plus’ hand cooked crisps and popcorn are all great tasting and free from gluten, dairy, msg, gmo, as well as vegetarian, vegan, halal and kosher certified – making them perfect for sharing.
The judges at the Belgium INN’awards commented on the fabulous and fun standout packaging; and on some of the other great flavours in the range – which includes How Chicken Soup Saved The Day crisps, Lucia Popperley’s Cappuccino Popcorn and Cousin Maisie’s Fennel & Lemon Popcorn.
The story doesn’t end there though – with more plans – and innovation – on the horizon.
“Ten Acre is the equivalent of a really great book. Once opened, you will find it hard to put down. You become immersed in the stories that each flavour brings and when you delve a bit deeper, there is so much more to discover. There is a new chapter being drafted – you’ll just have to wait and see what it brings,” adds Mr Goodman.
