By Jessica Saulnier, Huddle.
FREDERICTON - Tracy Bell, the CEO and Co-Founder of Millennia TEA, said it was a special moment hearing her company's name called as she sat in the same room surrounded by some of the biggest consumer brands in the country.
The Saint John-based fresh to frozen tea leaf company received the Canadian Grand Prix New Product Award for “Best New Product in the Country” in the OTC healthcare category, presented by the Retail Council of Canada.
“The Grand Prix Awards are sort of like the Academy Awards of food and beverage and grocery retail in Canada,” said Bell in an interview.
Millennia TEA’s application was reviewed by a panel of 29 judges. Out of the 121 applicants, only 26 finalists were called to attend the award ceremony in Toronto.
