#FtLionAwards 2023 Beverage of the Year shortlist
The last few months of this year have undoubtedly been unprecedented for the UK’s Halal food and drinks industry.
2023 will be remembered as the year when Halal restaurants collectively united to boycott Coca-Cola and Pepsi for their support of Israel’s genocidal treatment of the Palestinians in Gaza.
Restaurant owners have been increasingly taking to social media to declare their abandonment of these two leading big brand cola corporations.
Their focus has instead shifted towards finding and supporting alternative colas that are ethically sourced and fully traceable.
This year’s #FtLionAwards is being sponsored by just such a cola company: Multi-award winning Gusto Organic who “places people and planet at the core of its ethos”.
15% OFF & FREE SAMPLES: In addition to offering an exclusive discount via their website (enter code: LION15 (valid 31 Dec 2023) at checkout), Gusto is also offering businesses samples of their incredible range of products (email [email protected] to receive a selection of drinks).
We kick off #FtLionAwards 2023 appropriately with this year’s shortlist of best beverages reviewed across London and beyond.
