CSP Now Accepting Nominations For Retailer Choice Best New Product Contest

CHICAGO, March 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/  Today’s innovation is tomorrow’s core, and c-stores are the perfect breeding ground for products to flourish and become a staple of modern life. The past 13 years have proven that suppliers have the ability to innovate, improve and inspire.  

Between now and May 26, CSP is asking both retailers and suppliers to submit their nominations for best new products across the key c-store categories. Up to five submissions can be made by visiting

Eligible submissions include products available in c-store formats between Aug. 1, 2016, and May 26, 2017, and should show product innovation, uniqueness and/or groundbreaking advancement. Winners will be announced during the NACS Show® (Oct. 17-20) and featured in CSP’s December issue.

“New products are the lifeblood of the convenience industry. A new product can usher in a trend. It can reveal information about consumers. And, most important, it can drive shoppers into c-stores,” said Abbey Lewis, editor in chief of Convenience Store Products magazine. “CSP’s Retailer Choice Best New Product Contest not only recognizes the most innovative new products on the market, but it’s a barometer of the trends and flavors we can expect throughout the coming year.”  

Following the close of the nomination period, finalists will be identified and organized into core subcategories that reflect the year’s product innovation, determined by a panel of CSP and Convenience Store Products editors. C-store retailers will then have a chance to vote on the finalists in each of the categories to determine the winners.
