PLMA now accepting nominations for International Salute to Excellence Awards

The Private Label Manufacturers Association (PLMA), New York, announced the call for nominations in its second annual 2015 International Salute to Excellence Awards. The programme honours retailers across the globe for their commitment to own brands, giving recognition to innovation in private label.

According to PLMA, nominations can be made by retailers, wholesalers, manufacturers or other PLMA member companies. Products must be new to the marketplace and introduced within the past 12 months.

All nominated food and non-food products will be reviewed by a panel of professional judges on 8-9 April at the Hilton Amsterdam, PLMA noted. Professional catering personnel will prepare the food products, and the judges will evaluate the individual products for taste, appearance, presentation and value for money. Judges will score non-food products based on their knowledge, perception and experience.

The winning products will be announced and on display at PLMA’s 2015 World of Private Label International Trade Show, held on 19-20 May at the RAI Exhibition Centre in Amsterdam, PLMA explained.
