The judges have made their decisions - but who will triumph in The Grocer Own Label Excellence Awards?

Our judging panel, which includes chefs, magazine editors and industry experts with retail buying experience, met this week to decide who will take the crown in each of the categories in the awards scheme, now in its second year.

Products were judged on taste, texture, appearance, packaging, value for money and labelling. The full shortlist can be seen at www.thegrocerownlabel.co.uk.

"The judges were impressed with the exceptionally high standard of entries," said Adam Leyland, The Grocer's editor and a judge. "In certain categories it was very difficult to pick a winner."

Award winners will be revealed at a dinner at The Savoy in London on 15 May. To book, call 01293 867629.
