Collect Retailer Feedback
Confectionery and snack buyers and distributors from grocery, convenience, club and mass channels will sample all submitted products and provide feedback regardless of product performance. The judging panel represents 85% of the U.S. confectionery and snacks buying power, making the Most Innovative New Product Awards the perfect opportunity to get applicable retailer feedback on a new product.
All submissions will be featured in an on-site display located in the lobby with company name and booth number noted. The eye-catching, tech-savvy display just outside the show floor entrance is a popular stop for attendees, retailers and brokers before they begin their time on the show floor.

Retailers and media will have access to all Most Innovative New Product Awards nominees through the Sweets & Snacks Expo app, making it even easier to connect with the manufacturers bringing these products to market.
