Supported by a plethora of industry partners with high credentials including, Precision Mediathe Food Innovation NetworkFMCG business mentoring experts, Rise Growth Lab and merchandising experts Hoop; the nationwide search has started with the aim of recognising, supporting and encouraging innovation within the grocery sector.
