I’m thrilled to announce that the nomination period for the Chicken Marketer of the Year is now open. 

This one-of-a-kind award recognizes and honors exceptional efforts in retail, foodservice, direct-to-consumer, producer/integrator organizations and companies who have demonstrated innovative marketing and creative excellence in promoting chicken consumption. 

In its inaugural year, the Chicken Marketer of the Year was awarded to Chick-fil-A’s #thelittlethings marketing campaign, which focused on customer service, respect and authenticity. Personally, I had the best time going through each of the innovative submissions that showed off the creative ways marketers were connecting and engaging with chicken consumers.

Nominations will be accepted until May 1, 2023.
