Own Label Awards 2018 web logo

The Grocer has unveiled the shortlist for this year’s Own Label Awards, the world’s largest celebration of private label food and drink.

It features 350 finalists across 61 categories – chosen from more than 1,000 entries through consumer testing conducted by Cambridge Market Research.

The shortlisted entries will now undergo a second round of scrutiny. They will be blind tasted by our expert panel of judges, which comprises development chefs, food scientists, brand owners, marketing consultants and other food and drink professionals.

The winners and runners-up will be announced at a lavish awards lunch on Friday 11 May at London Hilton on Park Lane, presented by The Grocer’s editor Adam Leyland and a celebrity guest.
