Nominees include female employees in all sectors of the grocery industry, including retailers, wholesalers, suppliers and solution-providers in the community.

Here’s what Progressive Grocer had to say about Jessica in their announcement this week:

  • Responsible for Schwan’s Consumer Brands direct store delivery business, Longshore helped generate year-over-year sales growth through strategic planning and sales execution; in particular, retai l frozen Asian food experienced unprecedented growth due to her leadership, while display execution showed triple-digit improvement.
  • Working with cross-functional leaders, she sought to fully understand production, forecasting and distribution models to ensure product availability amid supply chain challenges.
  • For its efforts, Longshore’s team received the CJCJ Award, (an internal award) which honors exemplary practitioners of the CJ Management Philosophy.

Other categories in the award program include senior-level executives, store managers and trailblazers. To celebrate all recipients, a “Top Women in Grocery Awards Gala” is scheduled for November in Orlando, Florida.
