URC Hong Kong won the Outstanding Advancement Brand Award for its Jack ‘n Jill-branded Potato Chips, Roller Coaster and Beef Crunchies that helped Park ‘n Shop chalk up a 32 percent business growth.
The company also received the Exclusive Product Collaboration Award for its close coordination with Park ‘n Shop since 2020 to develop custom-made flavors of Potato Chips under the Jack ‘n Jill brand.
That led to more exclusive flavors, including Tom Yum and Black Truffle, and significant growth for 2022.
