This year, Podravka again achieved great success in the international quality assessment of the Superior Taste Award, the most respected award in the food segment in the world, with 14 medals won for the quality and taste of its products. Since 2008, when Podravka started participating in this big competition, its products have won 135 Superior Taste Awards.
The stars among this year's winners are Lino Lada Gold and Žito buckwheat bread with walnuts with three STA stars and a crystal award for three consecutive award-winning years.
Lino Lada Gold was launched in 2018 within the rich Lino product category. With its richness of hazelnuts, taste and texture, golden name and design, in a short period of time it conquered the domestic market of cream spreads and beat strong competition in this segment and delighted consumers in markets around the world. The maximum grades at the Superior Taste Award for three years in a row, as well as the Golden Basket 2019 for the product of the year in Croatia, speak in favor of that.
Wheat buckwheat bread with walnuts is a traditional Slovenian specialty that was unavoidable on tables for the holidays and on special occasions.
