Product of the Year USA, a company that awards brands for product innovation, has revealed the winners of the 2019 Product of the Year Awards—more than half of which are convenience-store staples.
The awards are based on the votes of 40,000 consumers and span 36 categories, such as candy, gum, cookies and even laundry detergent. The winning products must have been launched within the past year.
“Backed by the votes of over 40,000 everyday consumers, the distinctive Product of the Year logo helps shoppers identify the best new products in the supermarket and saves them valuable time and money during the shopping experience,” said Mike Nolan, CEO of Product of the Year. “In an increasingly competitive and saturated marketplace, the Product of the Year seal of approval gives our winning products a powerful tool proven to increase product trial, consumer awareness, distribution and sales."
