Congratulations to Blue Skies, winner of the Fresh Awards 2019 Innovation of the Year, sponsored by DS Smith.
Blue Skies launched diary-free ice cream and fresh fruit ice lollies from Ghana, moving into a new category making use of high quality fruit from local growers. The initiative has pushed the boundaries and challenges preconceptions about what Africa can achieve.
Being able to transport frozen products 5,000 miles from the blazing sun of Ghana, to arrive in the UK for Waitrose, Ocado, Amazon Fresh and Tesco, is a phenomenal achievement,” commented Nigel Jenney, Chief Executive of the Fresh Produce Consortium.
The Fresh Awards 2019 Innovation of the Year was presented by DS Smith at the gala evening, hosted by Graeme Swann, former English international cricketer at The Pavilion, The Tower of London on Thursday 6 June 2019.
