Vilniaus Duona’s, the largest bread producer in Lithuania and the Baltic States, products got recognition as the sandwich bread for toasting Toste Spelta and the Sostinės long loaf received the prestigious award of Lithuanian Product of the Year.
Company’s executives appreciate that the evaluation committee took notice of a well known favorite Lithuanian product and a novelty product also. The Product of the Year Gold Medal winner Toste Spelta was introduced to the Lithuanian market just this year but has already won appreciation from the buyers and the commission. It’s the first sandwich bread for toasting in the country, baked with whole grain spelt flour and cooked spelt grain.
“Spelt is one of the ancient crops. We have developed the recipe of this bread by combining the thousand-year-old culture and modern bread making technologies. This bread stands out from other products with a delightful nutty flavor and with an ultra-modern, latest design trend packaging.”, – says Artūras Kokoshkinas, Vilniaus Duona’s Marketing Director.
“Toste Spelta stands out in the unique baking process also. The baked bread is packaged in a very clean room, where the air is cleaned with modern filters and is 10,000 times purer than the one we usually breathe. This technology guarantees a very low level of micro-organisms entering the packaging, and the bread keeps its best qualities for a longer time.”
Representatives of Vilniaus Duona remark, how the increasing popularity of Toste Spelta was determined by the recently growing interest in the healthier diet in Lithuania, and consequently the requirement for healthier bakery products.
The commission highly evaluated the Sostinės long loaf, baked since 1990, by awarding the Silver Medal in Product of the Year Competition.
“Sostinės long loaf is a favorite product for several years in our product range and wins the highest marks almost every year. We are delighted, how our buyers still appreciate the quality and traditional taste of this long loaf for 25 years,” says A. Kokoškinas.
Vilniaus Duona, receiving awards for the most delicious products year after year, is planning to offer the consumers more innovative novelties in the future, which are expected to become their favorites.
