"Internet use of food and beverage needs is continuing to increase dramatically. For example, IDC Research projects that by 2004 American Internet users will spend 8.8 billion dollars at on-line grocery stores," said Galaxy's chief executive officer, J. Tod Fetherling. "As a vertical search engine, our goal is to make this information quick and easy to find as more sites begin competing for this Internet space."

This is the fifth winning category in Galaxy's "30 Days on the Internet" campaign, a program designed to recognize the best sites in 30 different categories throughout September. Galaxy is currently accepting submissions for the remaining 25 categories.
