BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Coravin Inc., maker of Coravin™ Wine Systems, today announced that it has been selected by Fast Company as one of the world’s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies of 2016 in Food – the only consumer product to be recognized in the category. Fast Company’s annual ranking of the world’s most innovative companies honors leading enterprises and rising newcomers that exemplify the best in nimble business and impactful innovation.
“This is an incredibly important milestone for Coravin – we could not be prouder to be named among the Most Innovative Companies in Food by one of the world’s leading publications focused on business and innovation,” said Frederic Levy, president and CEO of Coravin, Inc. “This recognition solidifies Coravin’s position as a leader among companies around the globe that are pushing boundaries and challenging convention, and we look forward to continuing our efforts to revolutionize the way wine is enjoyed, served and sold.”
Coravin Founder Greg Lambrecht is an innovator at heart. He spent a decade perfecting the Coravin System, which now allows consumers, restaurateurs, wine stores and winery owners across the globe to pour wine from bottles without ever pulling the cork. Coravin's revolutionary wine technology, which leaves the cork in place safeguarding the wine from oxidation, is now being used by wine lovers around the world and at thousands of retail and restaurant locations.
The Most Innovative Companies list is one of Fast Company’s most significant and highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. To produce the 2016 list, the magazine’s editors spent a full year gathering and analyzing data on companies around the globe. For the first time, Fast Company enlisted machine intelligence to help inform the list: Quid, a San Francisco-based startup, used its software to create topographical maps of innovation across more than 40 sectors of the economy.
“This year’s package—which includes top ten lists in 27 sectors—emphasizes the breadth of companies with progressive, agile business models, cultures of creativity, and ability to adapt in today’s fast-paced world,” said Fast Company editor Robert Safian.
Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies issue (March 2016) is now available online at www.fastcompany.com/MIC as well as in app form via iTunes, and on newsstands beginning February 23rd.
