Croatian Products Take Home Prestigious Superior Taste Award

Lauren Simmonds

Lino Lada Gold and Žito’s fermented buckwheat bread with walnuts gained the maximum rating and three STA stars for the second time as Croatian products were rightfully awarded.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 25th of June, 2019, the wildly popular Croatian brand Podravka’s treasure trove of product quality is richer still for a further eleven decorations from Superior Taste Award, the most prized award in the food segment in the entire world. This year’s Superior Taste Award ceremony was delivered at a ceremony held in Brussels, Belgium.

As previously mentioned, for the second time, with the highest ratings and three STA stars, Lino Lada Gold and Žito’s fermented buckwheat bread with walnut were awarded, and the Superior Taste Award mark was awarded to Vegeta Maestro smoked paprika, Vegeta Natur deltapack, Fant’s spaghetti bolognese, Eva delicates’ sardines with rosemary and sea salt, and more.

The Superior Taste Award is awarded by the International Taste & Quality Institute – iTQi, which headquartered in Brussels, and companies from more than 120 countries around the world compete intensely for this award. The Superior Taste Award is awarded by a jury of over 200 members from more than twenty countries worldwide. Their talents are recognised in Chef & Sommelier competitions and in renowned institutions such as Le guide Michelin or Gault & Millau.

The grading process is extremely rigorous and involves sensory evaluation using the method of the blind tasting of the product, and focusing on the intensity of the taste of the product itself without comparing it with other products.

The Croatian company Podravka has been participating with the rating of its products by this respected organisation continuously since back in 2008. The first Croatian product that won the Superior Taste Award in 2008 was Podravka’ beef goulash, followed by a whole range of individual products from all categories of Podravka’s very wide range.

In the period from 2008 to 2019, Croatian products made by the much loved Podravka were awarded with up to 121 prizes from Superior Taste Award.
