Product of the Year USA, the largest consumer-voted award for product innovation, has revealed its 2016 award winners. The winning products are selected through the votes of more than 40,000 consumers in a national representative survey each year conducted by research partner TNS, a global leader in consumer research.

“Consumers are looking for quick, in-and-out experiences in stores when making their everyday household purchases,” said Rich Fryling, managing director for Product of the Year USA. “The red Product of the Year Award seal lets shoppers know that over 40,000 fellow consumers prefer the winning products over the competition.”

Product of the Year was established 29 years ago. The company now operates in 42 countries with the goal of guiding consumers to the best products on shelf while rewarding manufacturers for quality and innovation.

Product of the Year takes submissions of innovative products launched within the previous year. These product submissions are placed into categories such as food, beverages, home improvement, pet, etc., with one product being named the category winner based on the results of a TNS survey of 40,000 consumers.

Multi-purpose, wellness and design innovation were key trends seen among this year’s winners, which were announced Thursday evening during the 2016 Product of the Year awards ceremony, held at the Edison Ballroom in New York City. These 29 winners are set to have an edge for launch success, as Product of the Year winners, on average, outperform their category sales growth by 38.1 percent.
