Refrigerated & Frozen Foods magazine, a Deerfield, Ill.-based unit of BNP Media, Troy, Mich., announced its sixth annual Best New Retail Products contest.

Editor-in-chief Marina Mayer reviewed all of the new retail products published in print and online at http://www.RFFmag.com from August 2017 to February 2018. From the hundreds of products, she nominated 16 refrigerated and frozen foods and beverages to be named Top 5 Best New Retail Product. The nominees were selected based on uniqueness to the market, packaging enhancements, on-trend flavor profile, consumer need and better-for-you ingredients. Products were NOT selected based off of samples.

How it works is, users visit https://www.refrigeratedfrozenfood.com/best-new-retail-products-2018 and vote for their favorite new retail product.

“The No. 1 winner in last year’s contest nabbed 25,231 votes, the most votes this contest has ever experienced. But, I foresee an increase in votes for this year’s contest as well,” says Mayer. “That’s because this year’s selection encompasses the most innovative new product developments to date. Regardless of the economy, food safety regulations, government taxes, etc., refrigerated and frozen food and beverage processors continue to develop, innovate and expand their portfolios. From cauliflower-based pizza crust to dessert hummus to herb-infused pasta and more, this contest helps recognize the efforts and creativity of today’s industry leaders.”

The Top 5 winners will publish in a special report in Refrigerated & Frozen Foods’ July 2018 State of the Industry issue, and will deliver an online-only interview on new product development, industry trends and what’s to come in the future.
