ALO Drink, makers of the #1 ready-to-drink aloe vera infused beverage in the U.S. natural market, was just awarded the 2011 InterBev Beverage Innovation Award for Best Natural Functional Drink. The award recognizes that ALO Drink delivers aloe vera’s powerhouse blend of vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids in the most delicious and natural form possible.
ALO Drink blends are made with real aloe vera pulp and juice straight from the aloe vera plant—never reconstituted from powder. In addition, ALO extracts only the desirable inner aloe pulp by using a hand-filleting method, instead of including the non-nutritious green outer skin as part of its blend.
A partnership with FoodBev Media’s Beverage Innovation magazine and Zenith International’s functional drinks newsletter, the InterBev Beverage Innovation Award is the only global award dedicated to the functional drinks industry on both sides of the Atlantic.
“Many supposedly functional beverages are in fact loaded with sugar, chemicals and exaggerated health claims,” shared Henry Chen, president of ALO Drink. “We make it our mission to provide aloe vera in its most naturally nutritious form, and we very much appreciate the recognition from InterBev that we are in fact accomplishing that goal.”
A presentation of the Beverage Innovation Functional Drinks Awards is planned to take place in conjunction with the 7th InnoBev Global Beverages Summit on March 30, 2011 in Washington D.C. Visit www.beverageawards.com for more information.
ALO Drink’s all-natural beverages are available in conventional and natural markets in both the U.S. and Canada in 500ML as well as 1.5L bottles for an SRP of $1.99 and $4.99 respectively. Each flavor is shelf stable with no refrigeration required. Please visit www.alodrink.com for more information.
