General Beverage Co., Ltd. bags Asian Export Award for Juice

Its IF Local Sensation 100% Coconut Water brings delightful, preservative-free coconut water in the convenience of a PET bottle.

Singapore Business Review and Hong Kong Business magazines acknowledged Asia's leading export companies and their trailblazing products and services in the recently concluded Asian Export Awards 2018.

On its inaugural year, the Asian Export Awards lauds exceptional products and services that have remarkably enhanced a company's business in the regional export scene.

This pinnacle event for Asia's best exporters is open to two divisions—the large corporate for big companies with group turnover of over $300m and the local champion for small or medium-sized enterprises.

General Beverage took home the Asian Export Award for the juice category under the large corporate division.

It bagged the award with its IF Local Sensation 100% Coconut Water, which is sourced from the best coconut groves in Thailand's central area.

Thanks to its state-of-the-art Cold Aseptic Filling Technology, IF Local Sensation 100% Coconut Water has no preservatives and has a prolonged shelf life quality for up to a year. Unlike other beverages, it also has no artificial color added which assures customers that the product is 100% natural.

Coconut water brings a lot of benefits for its customers.

Made from the clear liquid inside green coconuts, this fat and gluten-free beverage is an excellent source of electrolytes and hydration. It is naturally refreshing, with fewer calories, less sodium, and more potassium than a manufactured sports drink. It also has less sugar than sweetened drinks.

Coconut water is also high in manganese, which takes essential part in enzyme activities. It is also high in magnesium, which helps in strengthening bones and teeth and fortifying the nervous and muscular systems.

Additionally, coconut water works wonders on the skin, thanks to antioxidants that help neutralise oxidative stress and free radicals created by exercise.

The product contains 74 kilocalories per bottle, which is a healthy option fit for everyone. It is also certified Halal by the Central Islamic Council of Thailand.

The Asian Export Awards 2018, co-presented by Singapore Business Review and Hong Kong Business magazines, was held on November 20 at the Conrad Centennial Singapore.

This year's nominations were judged by a panel consisting of Vikas Sharma, Corporate Finance Director at Deloitte Southeast Asia; Marc Philip, Senior Partner, South East Asia Operations Consulting Leader & Singapore Management at PricewaterhouseCoopers Consulting (Singapore) Pte Ltd; Kuntha Chelvanathan, Partner Supply Chain and Operations at Ernst & Young Advisory Pte. Ltd.; and Chong Cheng Yuan, Partner & Industry Lead, Industrial Manufacturing at RSM.
