Foreign Investment Trophy 2016
Roeselare, February 24th, 2016 – The recent investments of Snack Food Poco Loco did not go by unnoticed. Flanders Investment and Trade (FIT) nominated Snack Food Poco Loco for its Foreign Investment Trophy, an initiative by Flanders Investment and Trade to promote investing in Flanders.
Out of the 9 nominees, the winner was selected through online voting. Not Poco Loco, but Nippon Shokubai took the Foreign Investment Trophy home. Nippon Shokubai announced plans to invest EUR 350 million to build a new facility in Zwijndrecht, set to become the company’s largest plant outside Japan.
In addition, Swedish carmaker Volvo Cars received the Lifetime Achievement Trophy, paying tribute to a lifelong investment policy in Flanders.
Yet, as Poco Loco we are very proud to have been nominated of this prestigious award. The extended press attention and social media campaign will certainly have an impact on awareness of Poco Loco.
