Over 100 products have been selected as finalists.

Retail Council of Canada (RCC) has announced the finalists of the 2024 Canadian Grand Prix New Product Awards.

More than 100 products launched into the Canadian market in 2023 have been selected for their contribution to the Canadian grocery landscape.

The 2024 finalists are a testament to consumer preference and industry trends – like high-protein and vegetarian snacking options, sustainable packaging and local sourcing, multicultural flavor profiles and innovative textures, convenient meal solutions, value and affordable choices, and storytelling through packaging.

“Retail Council of Canada is thrilled to showcase the evolution of new products at this year's Awards,” Diane J. Brisebois, president and CEO of RCC, said in a release. “The 2024 finalists epitomize the dynamic nature of our industry, with a clear shift towards sustainability, diverse flavor profiles, and consumer-centric innovations. These products not only meet the changing needs and tastes of Canadians but also signify a leap forward in our journey towards more responsible and inclusive retailing."

Winners will be announced during the Canadian Grand Prix New Products Awards Gala and Dinner on May 29, hosted by Brittnee Balir.
