True innovation

Saturday, September 26, 2020

 

True innovation is hard. It takes vision, courage, time, money, patience and passion in varying degrees. However the joy in launching not only a new product but new category into the highly competitive beverage market is immense! We are both proud and humbled by our latest innovation journey with the inspiring Savio family, third-generation apple growers on the pristine Granite Belt near Stanthorpe, Queensland.

Their vision was to value-add to their core business of selecting, planting, growing, harvesting, packing and selling quality retail apples. A new innovation arm, Savio Healthy Innovations was created and so the Innovation Project was born, almost three and half years ago. As Project Leader and Marketing lead, we built a team of expert & dedicated food industry professionals and suppliers to take the often treacherous road from product idea to commercialisation. The caveat? The new product must be highly differentiated, technically feasible and commercially profitable.

The result?

Upple

Deliciously drinkable, whole apple in a bottle!
