About Product of the Year:
Product of the Year is the world’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation. Established 26 years ago in France, POY currently operates in 39 countries with the same purpose: Guide consumers to the best products in their market and reward manufacturers for quality and innovation. In the UK, the Product of the Year seal is backed by the votes of more than 12,000 households, serving as a shortcut for shoppers in the supermarket, saving them time and money. Product of the Year accepts entries every year from consumer packaged goods that demonstrate innovation and were launched within the previous year. Entered products are then placed into specific categories such as food, beverages, personal care, household care, etc. with a product then being chosen as a winner in its category through a nationally representative online study conducted by TNS.
