Team Shake A Whey! won the innovation competition Food Works Stockholm in 2016 with their shake made from fresh whey with reason: The winner makes you surprised at how good it is. A product that has the potential to take a new position in the market. It is based on an original crop, and create a modern product for the active human.

40 years ago, I showed up fermented vegetables such as sauerkraut, at Sweden’s first eco exhibition at Moderna Museet. Since that day, I try to live by the motto that the desired future is that we create through new forms of cooperation. It needs a sprawling group, for it is in the cracks we find new ideas. Our team is a good example of this. And our product is proof that our partnership has really worked, says Kerstin Fredlund, communicator in the team Shake a Whey!

The product that won is a shake with nutrients and energy from fresh whey and Jacoby brush wheat.

Team Shake A Whey! moving on to the Swedish final with prize ceremony at Gastronomic Forum in Nykoping on 28-29 March 2017 and has a chance to win the largest innovation competition in the food.
