On a daily basis, Store Brands is focused on covering what’s happening in the world of private label. Whether it's new products, retail happenings, personnel news or other important events, we have a long history of bringing our readers the information they need.

Part of that history also includes honoring the work of the people and companies that comprise the industry we cover. From Editor’s Picks, to Top Women in Store Brands and Rising Stars in Private Label, our annual awards are much anticipated and celebrated by each year’s honorees.

Building off this success, Store Brands is proud to announce Impact Awards. It’s our belief that the private label business is a force for good. We continually see many companies that go above and beyond, working to protect the environment, enhance diversity programs, implement unique workforce initiatives, support needed community programs and more.

In developing Impact Awards, we identified key areas and structured the program to honor retailers in one group and suppliers/solution providers in another group. In doing so, this allows us to recognize that companies in each category impact these key issues in very different ways because of the differences in their businesses. 

The categories of recognition are:

  • Sustainability and Resource Conservation
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
  • Ethical Sourcing and Supply Chain Transparency
  • Workforce Development and Employee Support
  • Community Service and Local Impact
  • Educational Support and Learning Advancement
  • Food Security, Safety and Nutritional Leadership
  • Philanthropic Innovation and Corporate Giving Initiatives

The Impact Awards are open to all retailers, product suppliers and solutions providers that work within the world of private label. Entries will be judged by Store Brands and winners will be announced and featured in the December issue of Store Brands. Each category listed above will include an honoree from retailers and suppliers/solution providers.

For more information on the awards and to submit an entry or entries, visit our form here. We look forward to reviewing each entrant and honoring the great work being done across the world of private label.
