Welcome to PLMA's International Salute to Excellence Private Label Awards, honouring retailers for quality and innovation in private label.

Who can nominate products?

  • Retailers and wholesalers can nominate their own brands.
  • Manufacturers can nominate products with the permission of the retailer or wholesaler for whom they manufacture the product.

What products can be nominated?

Only new products that have been introduced within the past twelve months and that are currently available for purchase by consumers in stores, online or through catalogues. Only one product per category can be submitted.
