This is just a short post today after a little bird gave us some big news. On behalf of the Pennotec team, I would like to congratulate the Welsh Government Food Division, who not only won the GO Awards* Wales Procurement Innovation of the Year but were the overall winners of the prestigious GO Excellence Wales Award, which was only announced on the night!
The Procurement Innovation of the Year was awarded for the Welsh Government-Innovate UK collaboration of the SBRI project. With the support of the SBRI collaboration, MilaCel was one of two projects chosen to help tackle childhood obesity within Wales. We demonstrated that we could produce calorie reduced food by replacing of a portion of fat and sugar with our functional dietary fibre which is created naturally from apple solids left after pressing.
Finally, as award winners, they will now get to compete for the national GO UK Awards.
