For over thirty years, Product of the Year has guided consumers to the best products on the market across 37 countries, while rewarding manufacturers for quality and innovation. Each year, Product of the Year takes entries from new consumer products launched within the previous year that demonstrate advancement within their industry. Product nominations are placed into categories including beauty, personal care, household essentials, food and beverage, pet care, etc., and are assessed on seven key measures. One product is named the winner of each category, based on the results of the consumer survey."In a saturated landscape filled with so many product launches and claims, Product of the year aims to guide consumers as they seek out the best items on the market. This year, a record number of products entered to compete for the winning spot in their respective categories. With the help of 40,000 consumers nationwide, we are excited to honor these winners," said Mike Nolan, CEO of Product of the Year.
