The Kantonalbank Prize for 2008 goes to Ricola AG

The Basellandschaftliche Kantonalbank has awarded its Kantonalbank Prize for the 18th time. The prize is shared this year by Ricola AG in Laufen, the “Rockförderverein” for the promotion of rock music in the Basel region and the Children’s University of Basel, each of which receives 15,000 francs.

The sweet manufacturer Ricola was awarded its prize in Thursday in Liestal for its role as “model of a successful family enterprise”. A balanced blend of Swiss tradition and innovative spirit has given Ricola a name that is known all over the world for its natural herbal specialities.

 

The company, said Beat Oberlin, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Basellandschaftliche Kantonalbank, in his presentation speech, is one of the most innovative of its kind, markets 30 products in over 50 countries and yet has always kept its feet on the ground.
