FRAGOLETO WINS THE INTERMARCHÉ PRIZE FOR NATIONAL PRODUCTION

The organic ice cream Mediterrânico, created by Fragoleto, won the 7th edition of the Intermarché Prize for National Production in the "Innovation in Packaging" category.

The organic ice cream Mediterrânico, created by Fragoleto, won the 7th edition of the Intermarché Prize for National Production in the "Innovation in Packaging" category. The organic ice cream Mediterrânico, made with dry fruits typical of Algarve - carob bean, almond, hazelnut, fig - won the 7th edition of the Intermarché Prize for National Production in the "Innovation in Packaging" category. This award was due not just to the delicious mix of flavors, but also to the fact that this Fragoleto ice cream reaches the consumer in 400ml isothermal boxes that are 100% compostable. I.e. the package is totally biodegradable.

At the same time, it is worth noting that Mediterrânico ice cream answers all the concerns about environmental sustainability that Fragoleto has made integral to its activity. Raw materials are 100% organic and Portuguese, greatly reducing the CO2 footprint and contributing to the creation of wealth for a network of local producers. For example, the carob bean comes from Algarve, the hazelnut from a producer in Beira Baixa (an hinterland area in the middle of the country), the figs and almonds from Trás-os-Montes (an area further north). As a consequence of this strategy of favoring nacional raw materials, the Mediterrâneo ice cream got the "Portugal Sou Eu” (I am Portugal) official stamp in 2020. This isn't the first time Gelado Mediterrânico is honored by a jury. In 2018, this organic ice cream by Fragoleto won the Portuguese edition of Gelato Festival and will represent Portugal in the European finals to take place in 2021.

    A Embalagem, para além de bonita tem a vantagem de não constituir um agente poluidor.
