The Canadian Grand Prix New Product Awards, hosted by the Retail Council of Canada, is accepting entries for the special 25th anniversary program.
Product submission deadline is November 27, 2017. Winners will be announced at the Gala Dinner on May 30, 2018.
New this year is a rebate guarantee, which returns a portion of entrants' fees if they don't become a finalist or a winner.
"We are seeing tremendous response from independent entrepreneurs who have products that are sought after by consumers, says Dave Wilkes, senior vice president, government relations and grocery division, Retail Council of Canada. "The Grand Prix program provides an opportunity to raise the profile of these products with grocery retailers across the country. Retail Council of Canada's goal is that the rebate guarantee will encourage even more creativity in new grocery product development and open up the benefits of the Canadian Grand Prix New Product Awards to more manufacturers."
