    ‘Home’s where the heart is’ with skincare, ready meals and sleep lead trends in latest awards

    Product Of The Year turns 20!

    Product of the Year has announced the UK’s most innovative new products, with the winners chosen by 8,000 UK consumers (the largest survey of product innovation in the UK).

    Product Of The Year turns 20!

    DIY, skincare, sleep tech, confectionery and petcare, were just a handful of the 43 categories announced by Product of the Year at last night’s awards ceremony hosted at iconic London venue, Quaglino’s, by TV personality Tom Allen. Every year, the survey reveals the key trends that inspire shoppers, with winners ranging from major brands to independents, including P&G, Arla and Emma Sleep.

    Now marking its 20th year, Product of the Year has gained a reputation for putting brands and products on the map by giving them the recognition they deserve. The Product of the Year logo has 81 per cent shopper recognition and can be spotted in all major supermarkets and convenience stores across the country. Commonly regarded as a seal of approval amid a sea of products on shop shelves, it’s a vote of confidence by consumers for consumers.

    “This year, there’s been an incredible mix of new product development, creativity and ingenuity, that’s been truly impressive,” said Helga Slater, Product of the Year MD. “We’re very excited to reveal the ‘best in show’, which has been selected by over 8,000 consumers! Product of the Year is a celebration of what we consider to be the heroes of our everyday – the products that make a difference to our lives.”

    Research was independently conducted in association with leading data and insights company, Kantar. Brands that win a Product of the Year trophy also enjoy the right to feature the iconic red logo – an instantly recognisable symbol of product excellence.

    Among the convenience brands, Ben’s Original One Pan Creations wowed consumers with a speedy range of rice dishes from around the world (just add meat/vegetables) and bean-based competitor, Heinz Beanz Bowlz won a trophy for these ingenious plant-based frozen ready meals. Convenience is at the heart of dishes like these, making mealtimes quicker and less hassle after a long day. And if you’re looking for a drink to go with it, a glass of Joy wine might do nicely. This vibrant range, a bold new brand from Concha Y Toro, is geared at a younger audience – and is Instagrammable to boot. Perennial favourite, Strongbow, has come in strong, winning with its Tropical Cider drink, that brings colour to even the dullest January day.

    Beauty brands break through …

    Hyaluronic acid, is the ‘magic’ ingredient that features in two winning products – NIVEA Hyaluron Moisture Plus Lip Balm and Soltan Once Age Defence Facial Suncare with Hyaluronic Acid SPF 50. Both provide moisturizing/hydrating qualities for a natural glow. Known for its skin brightening properties, vitamin C serum is another exciting ingredient making waves in skincare. Boots Vitamin C Pro Brightening Booster Serum is an exciting high street innovation product that gives designer brands a run for their money and won the approval of the voting public.
