2019 Quest for Texas Best

For the last five years, H-E-B has set out on a quest to find the best in Texas—the best local products made by Texans! From the Panhandle to the Rio Grande Valley, from West Texas to Beaumont, the H-E-B Primo Picks: "Quest for Texas Best" is an open call for locally-owned, small food and beverage suppliers to have their items considered for placement on H-E-B shelves and $25,000 in your pocket!

 

The online submission is now closed for 2019; thank you to those contestants that have entered and we look forward to reviewing your products!


Entries accepted February 27 - April 5, 2019. Read official rules
