Calling all multiple retailers, symbol groups and wholesalers: have you initiated an own-label development in the past year that you think is worthy of an award? If so, we want to hear from you!

Entries are now being sought for The Grocer Gold Awards - and the category for own-label range development is always hotly contested.

There’s also an award for best NPD by a brand - but that is open only to the lines we named as our Star Products in our recent Top Products Survey.

The awards - sponsored by KPMG, Geac, Lawson Software and Headcount Worldwide Field Marketing - will be presented at a dinner in London on June 15.

If you think you have what it takes to go for gold, then call Emma Wiles on 01293 610282.
