The New Hampshire Grocers Association will host the New Hampshire Best Bagger Competition from 4:30 to 6pm, on Tuesday, Sept. 23, at the New Hampshire Food Bank, 700 E. Industrial Park Drive.
In 1987, the National Grocers Association held the first Best Bagger Championship in Dallas, Texas. Since then NGA has been bringing the country’s finest baggers together to determine who is the “best of the best”. This contest promotes exceptional customer service through superior bagging.
Bagging has been an important step for many supermarket employees who have pursued long and rewarding careers in the grocery industry. Like so many “gateway jobs,” bagger positions often face high turnover. The bagging contest highlights the rewards of this position, and seeks to limit that turnover while demonstrating the value of baggers to customer service.
