About the Report


Evaluation Criteria

  • Substantive Merit. Do materials address scope areas in a professional and/or definitive way?

  • Utility/Importance. Are materials relevant to current industry trends and priorities and of interest/use to the retailer audience? Preference will be given to submissions that cover FMI strategic pillars (e.g. food safety, sustainability, health & wellness)

  • Completeness. Are materials complete and usable as presented? Presentations that primarily include visual aids for a speech should have speaker notes or some other content that explains the visuals.

  • Impartiality. As best possible, do the materials avoid being a marketing piece for a specific company? Sales materials are not appropriate for the Knowledge Portal.

  • Timeliness. Are the materials current and reflective of the latest thinking in the field? In general, documents should be submitted within twelve months of original publication date.
