Celebrate our industry's achievements at the IGD Awards 2016

Even in challenging times, food and grocery companies continue to surprise and delight their customers with fresh ideas and great service. Every day, I see examples of how the industry is delivering shopping experiences to be proud of. You and your teams are developing first-class products, building responsive supply chains and creating inspirational store environments to meet shoppers’ changing needs across every channel.

Free to enter, the IGD Awards are the perfect way to showcase your commitment and innovation from the past 12 months. Like the industry itself, our awards remain highly competitive so being named a finalist or a winner is to be recognised as having made a truly outstanding contribution.

There’s a category for everyone − from the IGD Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award to the IGD Award for Health and Wellness − and you can enter as many as you wish. I encourage you to take the opportunity to raise awareness of the numerous ways you are helping shape the future of our industry through your commitment to delivering what shoppers and consumers want.

I am always impressed by the variety and quality of the submissions we receive and I’m sure you’ll set the bar just as high this year. If you want to shine the spotlight on your latest achievements, start writing your IGD Awards entry today and help us celebrate the very best of what our rapidly evolving industry has to offer.
