Our awards

As our family business has been around for over 120 years, we have naturally received quite a few awards over such a long period. You can read about the latest and most important awards received over the last few years here.

Sweetie 2016

The popular Kids Em‑eukal® wild cherry cough drop for children has been available in chew form since autumn 2015.   They taste good, they do you good – and they also impressed the jury of the German food trade publication "RUNDSCHAU für den Lebensmittelhandel". They presented the Kids Em‑eukal® Gumdrops with an award as the most innovative confectionery in the category "Children's products".

Sweetie 2016 Award

It was the health aspect which really convinced them:

“By using exclusively natural fruit aromas, herbal extracts, menthol and five vitamins, the manufacturer has brought a health-oriented confectionery for children onto the market with an excellent taste” – this was the unanimous verdict of the SWEETIE jury.

Markenaward 2017

Our family business wins the coveted brand award again. This time the jury honoured the launch of our new Em‑eukal Gumdrops as "Best Brand Expansion".

Award Markenaward 2017

"The award is further confirmation of the success of our brand strategy and our innovative strength," commented the managing partner Perry Soldan, speaking on behalf of his team.

The German marketing association "Deutscher Marketing-Verband" and the German marketing trade publication "absatzwirtschaft" have been presenting this award in honour of excellent services in brand management since 2001.

Top Marke 2009, 2010, 2011, 2016, 2018, 2020

Award Topmarke

Our premium Em‑eukal cough drops have been classed in the 100 best products for four times in succession.

The German food trade journal "Lebensmittel Zeitung" again honoured our premium brand with an award in 2018.

Em‑eukal was said to demonstrate "the best performance in its class through sustained product management".

Marke des Jahrhunderts 2019

Award Marke des Jahrhunderts

Just in time for its 120th company jubilee celebrations, the ZEIT publishing group honoured the traditional brand Em‑eukal by presenting it with the award "Brand of the Century" in the "cough drops" category.

We call those winning brands that have managed to set an example for an entire product category "German Standards".

Publicist Dr. Florian Langenscheidt and publisher of Brands of the Century

Sweetie 2015

Award Sweetie 2015

Em‑eukal is now available in chew form for the first time. The Em‑eukal Gumdrops were honoured with the Sweetie award in the "Fruit Gums" category. The judging panel was impressed by the convenient, resealable pack and the powerful impact of the unique taste.

Our new product is aimed specifically at consumers who like the medicinal effect of our boiled sweets but prefer a sweet which they can chew.

The Sweetie award is another confirmation of our success and our innovative capacity, which we have proven to our customers over decades.

Sweetie 2014

The Em‑eukal Moments win the Sweetie award in the "Marketing Concept" category. The award is presented annually to the most innovative new confectionery products by the monthly food trade publication "RUNDSCHAU für den Lebensmittelhandel".

"The moment of making a decision to purchase is always preceded by an emotional process".

Award Sweetie 2014

Dr. C. SOLDAN has captured this sentiment par excellence with its Em‑eukal Moments and has rekindled the incentive to buy. This was the statement made by the judges in commendation of the product.

Each bag is full of the special taste and effect, with three sorts to choose from – strong, refreshing or mild. And "nur echt mit der Fahne" – only the original and genuine product comes with the flag.

Salescup 2010, 2011

Award Salescup 2011

Golden times for the trade – that's what our limited special edition Em‑eukal Herbstgenuss promised for the first time in 2010. Placed in the fresh food category, we attracted attention and impulse purchases.

The trade journal "Lebensmittel Zeitung direkt" presented us with the SALESCUP award in 2011 for this "most effective and creative sales promotion campaign in the category 'Industry promotions launch/relaunch'".

The jury’s verdict: "A smart and consistent promotion!"

Marketing Star 2010

Award Marketingstar

In 2010, the Marketing Club in Nuremberg together with the MARKETING STAR honoured us for the successful relaunch of our Em‑eukal brand.

The Marketing Club honours a company from the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region for its outstanding marketing achievements every two years. The main focus is on customer benefit and the preservation or creation of jobs in Middle Franconia.

Marken Award 2010

Our classic Em‑eukal cough drops won the brand award in 2010 in the "Best Brand Relaunch" category.

Award Markenaward 2010

The German marketing association "Deutscher Marketing-Verband" and the German marketing trade publication "absatzwirtschaft" have been presenting this award in honour of excellent services in brand management since 2001.

"Away from the rather medically influenced cough drop image to healthy enjoyment: With this relaunch, Em‑eukal has managed to leap out of its niche...", was the jury's verdict.

If it's delicious, it's a winner!
