Must-range products revealed

Forty-five winners of Product of the Year 2017 awards were honoured last week.

Product of the Year Director Sarah Connelly says this year’s awards attracted entries with an almost equal divide between private-label and traditional brands.

“Being awarded Product of the Year is a huge bonus for any new product – whether it’s a retailer home brand or from an independent company,” she said. “It’s the third-party endorsement and stamp of approval that differentiates it from its competitors and gives consumers confidence when they’re looking to try something new.”

The Product of the Year 2017 winners are listed below and photos from the awards night can be found on our events page. For further details on the winning products, look out for our special coverage in the February issue of Retail World.
