Product of the Year winners display a distinctive red seal that’s recognized around the world as a vote of confidence from consumers.
Product of the Year USA, the largest consumer-voted award for product innovation, has revealed the winners of the 2022 Product of the Year Awards. With winners in 40 distinct categories, the products received the distinction for outstanding innovation through a national survey of 40,000 American shoppers conducted by global consumer research firm Kantar. Product of the Year winners display a distinctive red seal that’s recognized around the world as a vote of confidence from consumers themselves in such categories as function, design, packaging and ingredients.
“Given the continued flux and uncertainty over the past two years, we’re prouder than ever to provide consumers with the vote of 40,000 fellow shoppers as a guide they can trust when making important purchase decisions for themselves and their families,” said Mike Nolan, global CEO of Product of the Year Management. “One of the great strengths of Product of the Year is that we champion manufacturers for putting forward products that reflect the latest trends and offer consumers the solutions they're looking for.”
