Welcome to Sweets & Snacks Expo’s Most Innovative New Products of 2018 Gallery
This digital portal provides access to nearly 270 products submitted into the 2018 innovation awards program. Any product submitted will appear here.
Product submissions were taste-tested by more than 20 retail experts representing nearly 85 percent of the U.S. buying power. Four weighted criteria were used to assess each item including taste, packaging, innovation and go-to market feasibility. From the nominated and winning products view, users can drill down to every submission in across all nine segments including: chocolate, non-chocolate, sweet, salty, savory, novelty, seasonal, gourmet/premium, and gum & mints.
Each product also includes an innovation statement written by the exhibitor on why their item can give retailers a competitive edge in the marketplace, setting this gallery apart from other platforms. We invite you to explore!
