Brands have just one more week to enter the second annual The Grocer Branded Excellence Awards.

The deadline is 27 June, with all entries receiving feedback from the initial stage of consumer panel testing. Brands will then be rated by a panel of experts before being shortlisted.

With categories ranging from Best Bagged Snack to Best Cooking Sauce, products will be scored by consumers and experts on a range of criteria, including taste, content, appearance, packaging, labelling and value for money.

The event is open to existing and new products - as long as they are commercially available . Finalists and winners can use the logo on communications and packaging, with additional opportunities for coverage in The Grocer.

The Brandies, sponsored by SHS Marketing, is the sister event to The Grocer Own Label Excellence Awards.
