The most talented people and the best ideas and initiatives in the own-label industry will be recognised by a new awards programme from The Grocer. 

The Best of Own-Label Awards, which have been launched in conjunction with The Grocer’s Own-Label Accreditation Scheme, are free to enter, and will be announced on 8 November. 

Eight titles are up for grabs: Best Own-Label Buyer; Best Own-Label Buying Team; Best Own-Label Range; Best Own-Label Marketing Campaign; Best Own-Label Initiative; Best Own-Label Retail Development Chef; Best Own-Label Supplier Development Chef; and Best Festive Retailer.  

Each category will be judged by a panel of independent industry experts. 

The entry deadline for The Grocer’s Best of Own-Label Awards is COP on Monday 7 October 2019.

Adam Leyland, editor of The Grocer, said: “The own-label sector is vast, hugely creative and growing in importance, yet the brilliant actions of individuals and teams within it are often forgotten. 

“These awards aim to change all that, and to champion the heroes of own-label who work behind the scenes, creating huge excitement for customers, and tackling threats and opportunities at a business, sector and society level.”

Nominations for The Best Festive Retailer award will consider grocery retailers in conjunction with their entries to the festive showcase.
