Food Network star to emcee NGA Best Bagger event

Food Network star Duff Goldman will host the 2015 National Grocers Association Best Bagger Championship at The NGA Show this February in Las Vegas.

“We are thrilled to have Duff join us as our emcee for this very exciting event,” said Peter J. Larkin, NGA president and CEO. “Duff's creativity and enthusiastic personality will certainly bring another energetic component to the Best Bagger Championship.”

The NGA Best Bagger Championship will be held from 5 to 6:15 p.m. PST, Monday, Feb. 9, in the Grand Ballroom at the Mirage Hotel and Casino.

Now in its 29th year, the event is the culmination of contests held across North America, in which one contestant who has won their statewide competition is eligible to compete in the championship and vie for “bagging rights.” Nearly 30 baggers will compete for the 2015 title and the grand prize of $10,000. Contestants will be judged by speed of bagging, proper bag-building technique, weight distribution in the bag, as well as style, attitude and appearance.
