Following today’s announcement, the winners of the 14 award categories are expected to be announced in early March.

“While the COVID pandemic has presented challenges, the level of new product innovation underway in European grocery has never been higher or more ambitious,” said Stephen Wynne-Jones, Editor-in-Chief, ESM: European Supermarket Magazine. “With private label penetration at an all-time high, these awards show why private label continues to raise the bar in key supermarket categories and compete with big brands.”

ABOUT PRICES

The European Private Label Awards were launched by MY in 2017, to determine the most impactful and innovative private labels on sale in European supermarkets. Open to both retailers and suppliers, the awards recognize the very best in store brand innovation on a pan-European scale.

As part of the judging process, judges are asked to rate each product on three important parameters: innovation, presentation and taste. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s awards were judged both in person and by a local judging panel, as well as virtually, by an international team of experts.

MY would like to express our sincere gratitude to our team of expert judges, including André Michel and Malachy O’Connor, International Private Label Consult (IPLC); Hermann Sievers, SMK-Consult.com; Sebastiaan Schreijen, RaboResearch Food & Agri (FAR); Valerie Rice, Valerie Rice Consulting; Brian Daly, Brian Daly Consulting; Emilie Hourican, Hospitality Ireland; and Mark Kelly, ESM: European Supermarket Magazine.
