On 6 March, both Brau Union Österreich, Austria’s largest brewery company, and Spitz, a major Austrian food and beverage producer, were awarded the GREEN BRANDS AUSTRIA seal. Fritz Hinterberger, head of SERI and chair of the GREEN BRANDS jury and Norbert Lux, Managing Director of the GREEN BRANDS Organisation personally presented the certificates to the businesses. After successful re-validation Brau Union was certified once again, improving on the results of their initial certification in 2016 and looking to continue this trend in the future, according to CEO Magne Setnes. A family business with a history of over 160 years, Spitz is conscious of “sustainability” as the foundation for the next 160 years, says Managing Director Josef Mayer.
