SN has opened the online voting process for its third annual Category Excellence Awards.
These awards recognize the supplier/manufacturer companies that are best filling the needs of retailers in various product categories. The deadline for voting is Aug. 13, 2010.
Anyone connected to the industry can vote using this link: http://insidepenton.com/research/sg/sn2010catex.htm .
The most weight is given to retailer and wholesaler feedback. Suppliers can self-nominate.
This year, respondents can pick from a list of possible winners provided for each category, or input their own choices.
The feedback will be used to help editors pick the winning companies to profile this fall in a story in Supermarket News magazine and on SN's website.
