The Absolut Company named Food Exporter of the Year
As Sweden’s largest food exporter with Absolut Vodka, this is the first time in the 20-year history of the award that Absolut has been honoured.
“With its openness, creativity and desire to challenge, the winner is also one of Sweden’s foremost ambassadors. One could even ask if it is the winner that benefits most from being associated with Sweden, or if it is the other way around.” – Swedish Food Federation
Today, Absolut is sold on more than 150 markets around the world, and for the last 20 years it has been Sweden’s largest food and drinks exporter with an almost impossible share of export at 99%.
This accolade is a good example that today’s consumers not only demand more, but they also reward responsible brands. The Absolut Company endorses diversity both in its product portfolio and on an organisational level. In 2017, it achieved its goal of balanced teams across all people managers, including its Leadership Team.
“As the Food Exporter of the Year, there is not a worthier winner, as this winner constitutes the essence of Swedish food and drinks export,” concludes the jury of the Swedish Food Federation.
Congratulations on a job well done!
