Höpt Fizzing with A’ Design Award

BUSINESS RELEASE MAY 2014

HÖPT FIZZING WITH A’ DESIGN AWARD

New soft drink Hpt Soda has been awarded the prestigious title, Platinum Winner, at the renowned A’ Design Awards administered in Italy, where product design excellence is recognised on a worldwide scale.

Hpt Soda was selected from the Food, Beverage and Culinary section of the A’ Design Awards and was the sole Platinum award winner from 85 products that entered from both Australia and New Zealand.

It was also one of only 50 products globally, out of 12,523 entries across all categories, to receive Platinum status – this makes it the most successful Australasian product at the A’ Design Awards.

Antonia Davison from Höpt says a team across Melbourne, Tokyo and Auckland came together to create the drink, which is designed as a delicious clean soda for adults.

“We took insights from various soft drink markets and applied a user-centred design focus to bring together the ingredient, packaging and brand components necessary to deliver the benefits required.”

Hpt has over 15 features built into its design and is packaged in 330ml bottles with coloured twist crown seals and distinctive graphic labels. They are available in 4-packs and 6x4-pack cartons.

Höpt Sodas launched exclusively in New Zealand in March and are available in selected bars, cafes and specialty foodstores.

ENDS.
