Companies have less than a week left to enter The Grocer Own Label Excellence Awards. The closing date for the annual celebration is October 31. Each entry receives a consumer feedback report and finalists can use the logo on communications and packaging as well as receiving coverage in The Grocer.

“Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury’s have all intensified their focus on own label in a bid to reinforce their value credentials and fend off competition from the hard discounters,” said Liz Hamson, deputy editor of The Grocer. “There couldn’t be a better time to enter The Grocer Own Label Excellence Awards.”

The awards are run in association with Cambridge Market Research and are sponsored by PLMA, the Benson Group and whatsmybrand.com. Entry forms are available on thegrocerownlabel.co.uk, or call 01293 610354.
