POMPTON LAKES, N.J., Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The finalists and winners of the 2013 Beverage Innovation Awards were announced on Sept. 19 in Munich, Germany at Drinktec, the world's most prominent trade fair for the beverage and liquid food industry. H2M Beverages, the leading developer and manufacturer of healthy, premium and innovative products, was honored, winning first place in two separate categories, the only company entered to receive multiple top placements.
H2M received the "Best New Beverage Concept" award for their vitamin-enhanced drink, 989 OnDemand. The secret to the drink's success is in the air-tight cap, which stores all vitamins, minerals and electrolytes until it is opened by the user—ensuring ultimate freshness at the exact moment of consumption.
989 OnDemand's "interactive cap" was also awarded a second accolade for "Best Closure." The patented cap, a two-piece unit designed to hold liquid or solid in an air-tight chamber, releases a combination of essential vitamins, minerals and electrolytes into the water when the cap is twisted by the consumer. Once the cap's contents have been released, the bottom portion is turned counter-clockwise to remove, allowing access to the bottle's now freshly-mixed ingredients.
"We're so excited to have been a part of the 2013 Beverage Innovation Awards," said Charles Musumeci, CEO of H2M Beverages. "It's a huge honor to have received one top prize, let alone two. H2M Beverages is humbled to have been considered among such fantastic brands, and we are extremely grateful to receive these two awards."
The 2013 Beverage Innovation Awards was comprised of more than 370 entries from 40 different countries. The competition consisted of 29 different categories ranging from Best Dairy Drink to Best Brand Marketing Campaign, and awarded the brightest and best in the beverage industry for their achievements.
