Portland ME…The deadline for the submission of new products on the annual Kosherfest New Product Competition has been moved up to 4pm on Thursday September 26th. With the Jewish holidays beginning at the end of September, there are only little more than two weeks after the holidays before Kosherfest begins. New Product Award Winners are featured in separate winner’s display showcase, receive extensive media exposure, recognition at Kosherfest, official Kosherfest “Best of” seal, and is featured on Kosherfest.com. Each year several hundred new products are submitted with winners benefitting greatly from the exposure. Many winners reported better placement on supermarket shelves, increased sales, and a great deal of buzz on social media. New products are the core of expanding profits in kosher.
