Sixteen Peruvian products from the food and beverage sector won the 2019 Superior Taste Award, a contest organized by the International Institute of Quality and Taste in Brussels, Belgium.
According to the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Mincetur), the wards were given after a team formed by recognized professionals in gastronomy, such as chefs and associations.
“Around 200 prestigious chefs and sommeliers objectively evaluated our products, granting them high taste ratings,” said the Commercial Office of Peru in Brussels (OCEX Brussels), according to information published by Andina News Agency.
Some of the distinguished Peruvian brands were Socosani, Yura, Benedictino, Fontevita, Agua del Nevado and San Luis, all water products, who were certified with 3 and 2 stars of Superior Flavor, the latter being recognized for the seventh consecutive year.
The Arsenna company also had awarded products: Coconut Oil and Sesame Oil with two and one stars respectively. The brand Kiwigen de Chocolate, produced by Incasur, was also certified with a star.
“Mincetur highlighted the case of the Cusqueña beer that, through its Red, Gold, Black and Wheat varieties, has celebrated for 12 consecutive years an award of its taste quality”, Andina said.
