Rogers-based CCF Brands, a consumer packaged goods company that distributes fresh eggs under the Great Day Farms and Farmer’s Market labels, was recognized by Progressive Grocer magazine in its 2013 Category Captains contest.
Progressive Grocer made the announcement in its November issue, naming CCF Brands a “Category Advisor Winner/Perimeter Dairy.” CCF Brands was the only winner in the category.
“This prestigious award is based on a rigorous application process, which explains how our winners have developed customized solutions involving the latest in technology to help grow profitability and win new customers in retail grocery,” B.G. Burg, midwest sales manager with Progressive Grocer, said in the statement. This is the 17th year for the contest.
CCF Brands eggs are sold in 37 states and the company has extensive category advisor experience in the egg category, according to Jodie Daniels, director of marketing for CCF Brands.
Daniels said credit for the award goes to his company’s category management & shopper insights division, led by Tonya Horn.
“We’ve known for a long time that this team is the best in industry. It’s nice to see them attracting national recognition from a leading trade publication for the grocery industry,” Daniels said.
