Fast Food Awards, the Swedish fast food industry’s esteemed competition, has nominated Duni’s collection Amazonica as one of the final entries to win the 2018 edition of the competition in the category Supplier of the Year and Most Brilliant Idea of the Year. The single-use series is a collaboration between Duni and design duo Bernadotte & Kylberg.
Earlier this fall, Duni launched a ground-breaking collection of disposable items for the set table. In addition to the product line being a result of a design collaboration with Bernadotte & Kylberg, it was also made of various plant based materials such as bagasse, CPLA and FSC certified biomaterials. The collection is named Amazonica after taking inspiration from the organic forms of the water lily, Victoria Amazonica, found in the South American jungle.
Now, the collection has been nominated to win a prestigious industry award, Fast Food Awards. Behind the competition is Gastronord, one of Europe's most important gastronomic platforms.
"The nomination makes us proud of course," says Saloni Deva, IR and Communications Manager at Duni. "There is a lot of work behind Amazonica. Our vision was to combine a beautiful design with nature's materials and ultimately highlight the food that is served. It's a great honour to receive recognition from the industry for the results of our efforts."
"Amazonica is an environmentally conscious collection that celebrates food, form and function. The heart of the collection is to emphasize the pleasure received from food and it offers endless opportunities to enhance the dining experience, no matter the occasion", says Oscar Kylberg, CEO of Bernadotte & Kylberg.
The collection will be available in selected stores and in Duni's web shop from January 2018.
