The hotly fought contest to be named the UK’s best and most innovative Own Label products culminated in a day of celebration at the 2018 Own Label Food & Drink Awards on Friday 11 May 2018.
Held at the London Hilton on Park Lane, industry leaders from Britain’s leading supermarket and retail chains came together to recognise excellence in Own Label products. It was a close call this year in many categories with over 1,000 products entering. Following the Own Label Awards unique two-stage judging process, these had been whittled down to 350 products that were selected as finalists.
During a celebratory lunch, our ‘Category Champion’ and ‘Innovation’ winners were announced across 61 categories, seeing wins across the board for Lidl, Aldi, The Co-op, Asda, Iceland and Morrisons.
A further three special awards were given out, with Iceland Arctic Royal Salt-Baked Seabass being crowned our Champion of Champions and Iceland was also named Innovative Product of the Year for their Luxury Rosé Veal Saltimbocca. The Innovative Own Label Retailer of the Year for 2018 was awarded to Morrisons.
Congratulations to all our winners and finalists!
