The Gourmet Retailer's Editors' Picks

The Gourmet Retailer is currently seeking entries for TGR’s Editors’ Picks Awards that recognize the best new consumer products introduced in the past year.

TGR’s August/September 2017 Issue will recognize the best new specialty food products and the October/November 2017 Issue will recognize the best new housewares products. Products must be submitted for consideration and introduced in the past year. New products are indispensable means of attracting retail buyers’ — and more importantly, consumers’ — attention, and TGR’s Editors’ Picks awards will showcase a slate of winners. 

Specialty food winners will be honored in the August/September 2017 print edition of The Gourmet Retailer, as well as on our website. Housewares and other non-food winners will be honored in the October/November 2017 issue — in print and online. Deadline: June 12.
