The product reached the final in the product and process innovation category and was placed in the communicating scientific knowledge to consumers category.
Brought to market in April 2013, IZZI milk is a natural product uniquely developed for the Vietnamese market to address the significant issue of stunting (due to malnourishment and micronutrient deficiency) in Vietnamese children. This health issue is typically caused by a diet that is lower in nutrients, micronutrients and minerals compared with other developing countries.
The Global Food Industry Awards are reviewed and assigned by the International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST). Dubbed the "United Nations of the food industry," IUFoST's awards have the farthest international reach.
Held biannually, the World Congress of Food Science and Technology assembles the world's top food industry scientists and businesses./.
