VDP has introduced a new world renowned product DaVinci Gourmet, which is an international brand, owned by Kerry Foods that has been around since the 1980’s. At VDP, we believe that Mixologists, Baristas and Hospitality Specialists are creative people and true artists that seek perfection to amaze their audiences, and as DaVinci Gourmet is inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci’s pursuit of perfection, it will become a contemporary choice for professional drink makers to fuel their creativity and support in building masterpieces. DaVinci Gourmet is the Gold Sponsor for the World Barista Championships and has just signed the Platinum Sponsorship for the South African Barista Championships. Kerry Foods is the world leader in developing flavours that appeal to all the senses, and it is very eminent in especially the DaVinci brand whose slogan is True to the Fruit. DaVinci is free of artificial colours, flavours and sweeteners and all products are Halaal Certified. The application for DaVinci Gourmet is slightly different to the other brands in the market and one of our beverage consultants will be happy to come and do a demonstration for you.
