Grocery Innovations Canada is the largest grocery industry event in Canada, offering the industry’s first peek at the hottest new grocery items. Yep, you read right. You’re about to get a glimpse into the grocery stores of the future! OK, maybe the products aren’t that extreme, but they’re each a little different in their own way.
From naturally alkaline spring water to a coupon app to smooth cottage cheese — that’s right, smooth, no chunks — the products coming out in 2015 are proof that we’re living in an age of innovation. Hell, when we were kids, Cheestrings were the biggest novelty around. It’s apparent we’ve moved on from that golden age.
Check out this year’s Top 10 Most Innovative Products Competition winners.
