The product of Rūta confectionery factory called Vasario 16-osios Lietuva was highly rated at the international competition Superior Taste Award held in the capital of this country. The collection of chocolates dedicated to the centenary of the restoration of Lithuania got two golden stars!
The story of this product is extraordinary. Confectionery factory Rūta, which has been operating for more than a century, has been growing along with the state of Lithuania during its lifetime. Every important achievement or outstanding personality was reflected in the packaging of the factory’s products. Therefore, the 16th of February, the most significant date in the history of Lithuania, had to be commemorated. To celebrate this occasion, a two-tier collection of sweets called Vasario 16-osios Lietuva was created, consisting of 12 chocolate sweets with different flavours and a chocolate bar in the shape of Lithuanian map.

Greenz, the fruit, nuts and seeds bars by Rūta confectionery factory received the award for innovation.
In the development of this innovative, functional series of bars made of vegetable-based raw materials of high biological value, the technologists of Rūta confectionery factory worked in collaboration with the scientists from the Institute of Horticulture at Lithuanian Research Centre for Agriculture and Forestry and adjusted these products to the nutritional needs of different groups of people. This is what made these products exceptional on the market. Also, the ingredients of Greenz series of bars have been carefully selected, they do not contain any gluten, added sugar and are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
The staff of Rūta confectionery factory is happy to receive such a significant appreciation for their continued attention to the consumer and the enormous amount of effort.
