2022 Honorees Have Been Announced!

Progressive Grocer's Top Women in Grocery award is the most prestigious honor for female leaders in the grocery industry. 

The Top Women in Grocery award winners represent all levels in the industry within both the retailer and supplier communities. Candidates are nominated by colleagues and peers for one of three categories: Senior-Level Executives, Rising Stars, and Store Managers. Winners are announced in the June issue of Progressive Grocer.

We also present the Trailblazer Awards, which recognize two  food industry executives whose leadership and vision have had a profound influence on women in the retail food industry & CPG respectively.

Make plans to join us in celebrating their accomplishments with a night of drinks, dinner and dancing at the Top Women in Grocery Awards Gala.
