Up to 25 products will be selected as finalists for online voting throughout the month of March.
Nominations can be submitted through the form below by U.S.-based food processors and manufacturers as well as suppliers and marketing/PR firms. Products are selected based on uniqueness to the market, packaging enhancements, on-trend flavor profiles, and addressing consumer needs. Seasonal, limited-time-only or special-edition products are not applicable.
Eligible products need to have been launched on store shelves between January 1, 2022 and December 31, 2022. Products for sale before January, 2022, are not eligible. Products must be refrigerated or frozen foods sold in the U.S.
Products receiving the top-five votes will be featured in Refrigerated & Frozen Foods’ July e-magazine and on our website, alongside a company Q&A. The product receiving the most votes overall will also be featured in an episode of our From the Cold Corner podcast in July.
Companies who previously finished in the Top 5 of our 2022 refrigerated and frozen retail products contests are NOT eligible to resubmit the same product for the 2023 contest.
