Own-label category awards

At the end of the year, all accredited products will go forwards to reveal category winners for 2019.

Each product will be reviewed, taking into account its benchmark score and individual consumer review comments. These will be assessed by an independent panel comprising industry experts in nutrition, food development, packaging and market positioning, sitting alongside representatives from The Grocer and consumer research experts Cambridge Market Research.
