The Retail Council of Canada has announced the finalists for the 25th Anniversary Canadian Grand Prix New Product Awards. This year the panel of 27 industry experts received 20 per cent more submissions than in past years, with 119 products making it onto the shortlist.
"The products evaluated this year tended to be higher quality, targeting an upscale client that wants a clean, simple ingredient list and a flavour profile of both healthy and exotic," said Marcus A. VonAlbrecht, chef and jury chair who oversaw the judging panel.
Finalists and winners are recognized by the industry and can use the Canadian Grand Prix logo on their packaging. Finalists also receive exposure in a variety of digital and printed publications, distributed to more than one million Canadians across the country.
Winners will be announced at the Awards Gala on May 30, 2018, following the second day of Retail Council of Canada's STORE Conference, Canada's biggest retail conference.
