(StatePoint) One of the most important parts of any household or personal care routine is shopping for all the items you need. With new products introduced to store shelves all the time, sorting the best from the rest can be a time consuming process.

While researching product reviews can be an effective strategy for finding out what other consumers have already tried and loved, there are much faster ways to get insights from other shoppers. For example, you can consult Product of the Year USA, the largest consumer-voted award for product innovation. With product winners determined by a national study conducted by Kantar, a global leader in consumer research, 40,000 consumers have voted on the best products for 2020.

“When shopping, seeking out the distinctive Product of the Year red seal of approval can help you quickly spot the best new products, saving you valuable time and money during the shopping experience,” says Mike Nolan, Global CEO, Product of the Year Management “Our unique process of polling 40,000 independent voters means consumers can genuinely trust the seal.”
