NFRA BESTOWS 25 GOLDEN PENGUIN AWARDS

They’re for the best merchandising and marketing events in the industry during the March Frozen Food Month promotion. Another 37 silver awards will go to regional winners.

The National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association, Harrisburg, Pa., will present 25 Golden Penguin Awards to the national winners of its 2020 March Frozen Food Month promotion. Presentations will take place during the association’s October virtual (online) convention in October.
“While many companies had to modify their March Frozen Food Month plans, NFRA recognized the outstanding efforts of the industry during an uncertain time to ensure consumers were able to stock up on freezer aisle essentials,” the association said.
In addition to the individual awards, the highest scoring entry in each of the Overall Marketing Campaign sub-categories will be revealed as Top Marketers. Silver awards — this year there are 37 —are typically presented at the local level at appropriate frozen food association meetings.

Here’s a list of all the winners.
