M.A.D.E. (Marques Associées Distribution Event), the annual retail and consumer goods trade fair, is set to sponsor the forthcoming edition of the awards, and ESM is delighted to count on the group's expertise in the future development of the awards.
The sponsorship announcement was formally unveiled at M.A.D.E. 2018, which took place on 20 and 21 March in Paris.
Commenting on the sponsorship, Stephen Wynne-Jones, editor of ESM: The European Supermarket Magazine, commented, “Following a phenomenal response from retailers and suppliers for the inaugural edition of the awards, we are delighted to welcome M.A.D.E. as a sponsor for the next edition of the competition.
“We are confident that, with M.A.D.E.'s support, we can develop this awards programme into a benchmark for private-label excellence in Europe,” added Wynne-Jones.
In addition, Sébastian Gillet, show director, M.A.D.E., said, “We see the European Private Label Awards as very important to the future international development of M.A.D.E.
