The Grocer dished out sixteen product awards, plus a sustainability award at this year’s ceremony, which was originally livestreamed on 14 October.

To qualify, products needed to be completely original, new to the retailer, or with new packaging or a new recipe or formulation. In a tasting and testing process lasting for three days, our expert judges came across some brilliant new products. Of the hundreds of products accredited with gold, silver and bronze medals, the products featured here were chosen from among gold medal winners as the outstanding products in their respective categories.

Details of all the accredited products, together with feedback reports from the judges, and logos for use on packs, will be sent to retailers and their suppliers (where known) in the next few days. “Sales of own-label products have come storming back since the pandemic,” said Adam Leyland, The Grocer’s editor-in-chief. “Retailers and suppliers have responded magnificently with their innovation and range management and I’ve no doubt the own-label world will evolve further.”
