CHICAGO --CSP announced the winners of its 15th annual Retailer Choice Best New Product Contest this week.
Eligible new products introduced into the convenience-retailing format between Aug. 1, 2017, and May 26, 2018, were nominated for the awards, and a panel of CSP and Convenience Store Products magazine editors determined the top three finalists in 23 categories.
“Retailers look forward to new products, and you know who else does? Consumers. When a supplier develops a new product that gets retailers excited and resonates with consumers, it’s a perfect storm that can boost sales for everyone involved," said Steve Holtz, content director of convenience for CSP and Convenience Store Products. "Congratulations to this year’s winners of our Best New Product Contest. You've lifted your brand profile, boosted store sales and won over the hearts of consumers.”
Awards will be presented to contest winners during the 2018 NACS Show, to be held Oct. 7-10 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, certifying that these company’s products “have arrived” to the marketplace.
