GMA is still accepting submissions for the 2014 CPG Award for Innovation and Creativity, which honors the innovation excellence of two manufacturing members each year.
Given by GMA's Associate Member Council (AMC), submissions will be judged based on creativity, willingness to take risks, achieving measurable results and creating a valuable knowledge base for the entire industry.
This year, the two categories for submission consist of manufacturer members with total sales that are under $3 billion and those that are $3 billion and above. The CPG Award covers a wide range of innovative topics, including the use of new technology, collaboration with trading partners, manufacturing excellence, product development, supply chain improvement, environmental sustainability, product reformulation and productivity improvements.
The submission deadline is September 30, 2013. The award winners will be announced at the GMA Leadership Conference at FMI Midwinter in January 2014.
