The Retail Council of Canada announced the winners of its annual Canadian Grand Prix New Product Awards during a virtual gala held Thursday afternoon.

Now in its 27th year, the Grand Prix Awards aim is to celebrate innovation and creativity in the food industry. The award recognizes the most notable new food and consumer goods products–both national brands and private label–launched in the Canadian market in 2019.

“We’re seeing tremendous innovation in products that allow Canadians to easily create a wide range of meals at home that cater to new dietary needs with more plant based and gluten-free options” said Diane J. Brisebois, president and CEO of Retail Council of Canada. “The assortment of food products demonstrates the trend towards cleaner, healthier ingredient lists, both with meat-based and plant-friendly foods.”

The winning products were evaluated by a jury comprised of food and grocery experts who judged the entries based on innovation, taste, experience and packaging.
