ConfectioneryNews is launching its inaugural Personality of the Year competition to recognize unhailed innovators and industry stalwarts for a job well done.

We’re looking for your help to draw up a shortlist of industry peers who have excelled in 2014 whether it be for ground-breaking scientific developments, outstanding sales performance, reformulation wins, engineering masterclasses or corporate social responsibility initiatives.

Who within your company has pushed boundaries but has gone unnoticed? It could be someone at a multinational manufacturer, a small start up, an ingredient or processing packaging supplier or even an NGO employee.

Please nominate a colleague or industry peer who deserves recognition for their services to the sweet stuff. You can post a comment in the box below​ or by send an email to byvire.avrohet@jeoz.pbz​, explaining in a few sentences why your candidate is a prized asset to the confectionery industry.

Our editors will narrow the nominees to 10 and a public vote throughout December will decide the winner.

Prizes are up for grabs but are being kept under tight wraps for now. Let's just say it will be better than a box of chocolates...

Mr or Ms or Personality will be announced in January and we hope to interview the winner and the people who supported them for a feature article on the site.

We encourage everyone to participate, whether you are a regular or first time reader – help a colleague or peer get the recognition he or she deserves.
