CMPL EXPO is proud to present The CMPL Private Label Awards, a celebration to determine the most impactful and innovative offline and online private label brands on sale in India’s supermarkets.

With upward trends in private label market share across India, and innovative private label store brands now penetrating even the most diverse of supermarket categories, The CMPL Private Label Awards have been developed to honour Retailers, FMCG brand owners, Purchasing Managers/Category Heads, Suppliers and HoReCa chains for quality and innovation in private label.

The entry process for the 2023 Awards will commence shortly. Watch this space for further updates.



Contract Manufacturing & Private Label Expo is India's only private label sourcing platform with suppliers of food and non-food products showcasing innovative products to retailers, brand owners, and more.

The CMPL Private Label Awards has therefore been created to celebrate the 'best of the best' when it comes to store brand innovation right across India, and celebrate the dynamism of both retailers and suppliers when it comes to developing products that can compete, and in many cases outperform, the biggest brands in the marketplace.
