Sweets & Snacks Expo Launches New Products Gallery
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Confectioners Association’s Sweets & Snacks Expo premieres the long awaited debut of the Most Innovative New Product Awards online gallery on SweetsandSnacks.com.
The digital portal provides 2017 registrants with access to all 360-plus products submitted into the annual awards program.
Online visitors can view all the nominated and winning products from each of the nine product segments. For each submission, the gallery features the product, brand, suggested retail price, weight and photo. An innovation statement written by the exhibitor on why their item can give retailers a competitive edge in the marketplace is also available.
“This new tool allows retailers to continue treasure-hunting and building their strongest selling item assortment even after the show closes,” commented Barry Rosenbaum, Sweets & Snacks Expo chairman and president of Nassau Candy Distributors Inc. “Providing this unique online gallery to our attendees furthers our mission to provide incredible value not only to our exhibitors who submit an item into the program, but also to our retail attendees looking for the next great product.”
The 2017 Sweets & Snacks Expo marked the sixth year for the Most Innovative New Product Awards program. Winners were selected from more than 360 new product award entries spanning nine categories, including: chocolate; non-chocolate; sweet snacks; salty snacks; savory snacks; novelty/licensed; seasonal; gourmet/premium; and gum & mints. Additional winners took home awards for Best in Show and the newly added Small Business Innovator.
