In March, Bad Duck Caramel headed to Vancouver to the Grocery & Specialty Food West (GSFW), 2017. This trade show included a Top 10 Most Innovative Product judging session that featured local food experts who anonymously evaluated a series of products from the New Product Showcase. Products were chosen based on criteria including: packaging, overall innovation, originality and (use) benefit. Bad Duck Caramel was chosen in the Top Ten out of 375 eligible products. Judges comment: "Simplicity is best. Made with three ingredients: butter, sugar and milk." Our very small company and very humble display was in the Vancouver Convention Centre with the big boys like Maple Leaf and Heinz. We met tons of great people and learned a great deal about the grocery industry. We got lots of great feedback about the Bad Duck branding; the flavour, the three ingredients and the fun. Here's the story from the Vancouver Sun.
