Nominate a produce leader for fresh approach to marketing

The International Fresh Produce Association is seeking nominations for its Retail Merchant Innovation Awards, which recognize creative strategies driving produce consumption.

The awards celebrate the accomplishments of a vice president, produce director or store manager (or equivalent position) who demonstrates passion and purpose in their approach to produce marketing.

“We are looking for engaging stories that show how those strategies were brought to life in the retail setting, and the impact it had on consumers,” according to an IFPA statement.

The awards recognize retailers (including wholesale grocers) in five store-count categories: 1-50 stores; 51-150 stores; 151-250 stores; 251-399 stores; and 400-plus stores.

Winners will be recognized onstage at The Global Produce & Floral Show in Anaheim, California, on Oct. 20.

Nominations are open through July 28. More information is available online.
