European Private Label Awards – Finalist Announcement 2 February
The finalists in this year's European Private Label Awards are due to be announced via ESM's online and social media channels on Tuesday 2 February.
This year's competition, which took on a different slant due to the coronavirus crisis – with products assessed by an at-home judging panel – welcomed a record number of entrants, including a number of first-time applicants.
Retailers from France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Norway, Belgium, The Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Austria, Hungary, Turkey, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine and Russia took part in this year's contest, with products representing the best of private label innovation on a pan-European level.
Following the finalists announcement, the winners of this year's competition will be unveiled in late March, to coincide with the publication of ESM Issue 2 2021.
In addition, for the first time this year, ESM is launching three new cross-category awards categories, which honour the 'best of the best' in terms of the three main judging pillars: Innovative Product of The Year, Packaging Excellence Award and Taste Excellence Award.
