TARRYTOWN, NY, June 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE — Nightfood, Inc. (NGTF), the innovative ice cream company solving America’s $50 billion-dollar nighttime snacking problem, today announced Nightfood has been named a finalist in the 2019 World Dairy Innovation Awards.
Nightfood was entered in four categories for the awards, and is a finalist in the following three categories: Best Dairy Dessert, Best Ice Cream, and Best New Brand.
“This is amazing news for our brand,” exclaimed Nightfood CEO Sean Folkson. “Our goal is not necessarily to win awards, but winning, or being named a finalist, sends very clear signals to supermarket category managers about where the future of the category is going.”
The winners in all 22 categories will be announced as part of a special ceremony at Zenith Global’s Global Dairy Congress in Lisbon on June 26.
Nightfood management recently announced that updated projections based on recent corporate developments call for revenues exceeding $3,000,000 in 2019 calendar Q4, and profitability in that same quarter.
In addition, Management is targeting distribution in 10,000 points of sale by March 31, 2020. Like the previously-announced 2019 Product of the Year award in the ice cream category in a Kantar survey of 40,000 consumers, Folkson believes this industry recognition supports the brand’s distribution initiatives.
