Promotions

What are the Retail Promotions?
For over 30 years, NFRA has been the proud sponsor of three annual retail promotions: March Frozen Food Month, June Dairy Month and June/July Summer Favorites Ice Cream & Novelties. These promotions educate and drive consumers to the frozen and refrigerated aisles, ultimately increasing sales across all categories. The broad reach of these promotions was enhanced even more with NFRA's PR campaigns and initiativies, which support manufacturer and retailer promotional sales strategies and messaging platforms.

Golden Penguin Awards
The prestigious Golden Penguin Awards are presented each year during the NFRA Convention at the Convention Awards Gala (this was formerly named the Grand Awards Reception & Banquet). These awards go to participants in any of three retail promotions, who  submit entries of their merchandising displays to NFRA following the promotion month. A panel of qualified marketing professionals from accredited colleges and universities look for outstanding work in the various winner categories, and choose winners based on prominent use of the retail promotion logos, simply-stated goals and objectives of the display, retail support throughout various facets of the store and directing consumers to NFRA's consumer website, EasyHomeMeals.com and/or Easy Home Meals social media platforms.
