Pinar, the trusted Turkish brand, has been recognized by the 2019 Gulfood Innovation Awards within the “Most Innovative Dairy Product” category for its recently launched product – Pinar Choco Labneh. The annual Gala night and award ceremony was hosted at the Dubai World Trade Center with numerous renowned brands competing across twelve different categories.
Pinar Choco Labneh’s recognition is a testament to the brand’s continued commitment to produce high quality and healthy products based on customer needs, through ongoing research, innovation and product development.
The spread combines the goodness of Pinar Labneh with the delicious taste of chocolate, delivering essential nutrients, energy and guilt free enjoyment not only for kids but for the whole family. With its velvety texture and chocolate hazelnut flavouring, this treat is a great healthy alternative to other chocolate spreads. Produced from 100% fresh cow’s milk, Pinar Choco Labneh is packed with calcium, low in sugar & fat and a great source of protein. Another added benefit is the product not containing any additives or preservatives and being light on calories compared to other chocolate spreads available in the market.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Arda Cenk Tokbas, General Manager said, “We are honoured to have won the award for ‘most innovative dairy product’ and hopeful that this is one on many yet to come. These accolades emphasize Pinar’s dedication to bringing innovative and healthy products into homes and kitchens across the region, which can be enjoyed by the whole family. By focusing on our customers and keeping uncompromising quality at the center of everything we create, we can tailor products to their needs and interests, and strive to create something truly worthwhile.”
