Product Of The Year 2016

All of you have probably heard about Product of the Year.
For those that haven’t Product of the Year is the UK’s largest independent survey into product innovation with more than 11,500 consumers voting in a survey conducted by TNS. Winning manufacturers can take heart that 86% of consumers say the endorsement of the Product of the Year logo makes them more likely to buy the product, and as many as 64% of consumers recognise the logo.
Research from Kantar Worldpanel shows the 14 winners from Product of the Year 2010 achieved an average of £9.2m in sales in the 12-month time period, against an average new product of £1m after one year of being launched.
The initiative has been running in the UK for 12 years with the success of the scheme being launched globally in countries, including the USA, Canada, India, Brazil, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia. Winning manufacturers span global brand names, including Procter and Gamble, Reckitt Benckiser, Unilever, Tesco, PepsiCo, Nestlé, Kimberley Clark and Mars, all previous winners.
