Time is running out for companies planning to enter this year's prestigious Dried Fruit New Products Awards. There are five categories: convenience, health, indulgence, snacking, and seasonal. In addition, there is a prize for the best new use of sultanas and/or raisins. And there will be an overall trophy. The awards are backed by The Grocer and sponsored by Community Foods, Flagship Fruit & Nut, Sundora, Sun-Maid, Sunsweet, Voicevale and Whitworths. The winners will be announced at a gala dinner at Madame Tussauds in London on October 23. Details and entry forms are available from the Dried Fruit Information Service on 020 8744 2630. But hurry: entries must be in by September 14. {{NEWS }}
