Boca Raton, FL -- With hundreds of products vying for shoppers’ and diners’ attention, savvy food executives are constantly searching for items that will differentiate their stores and restaurants from the competition. Finding breakthrough products that are truly innovative and can disrupt consumer buying behavior can be challenging.

To guide high-volume produce buyers on what is truly innovative, PRODUCE BUSINESS magazine is calling for entries for its First Annual Innovations Award Competition. All produce suppliers are invited to submit their most groundbreaking products to its Boca Raton, FL office.

Innovative marketers should send their products and give a brief description in less than 500 words, stating why they consider their products innovative. Entry is free of charge and the deadline is Oct. 10. More information can be found on the ProduceBusiness.com website by clicking on the “What is Innovation” icon.

The editorial staff of PRODUCE BUSINESS will select the Top 10 entries, which will be recognized on the cover of the publication’s November 2017 issue, mailed to more than 25,000 industry executives. After the finalists are announced, the produce industry at-large can vote on which item is the year’s most innovative produce item.

PRODUCE BUSINESS plans to announce the final winner at this year’s New York Produce Show and Conference, scheduled for Dec. 11-14 in Midtown Manhattan. The winning product in the inaugural contest also will be featured in the December 2017 PRODUCE BUSINESS magazine.
