The results are in: 4,000 consumers have voted and Product of the Year Canada is unveiling the highly anticipated winners of the 2022 Product of the Year Awards.

With winners across 35 distinct categories, including top c-store categories, such as snacks and beverages, the products are awarded for outstanding innovation. Product of the Year winners are selected through a national survey conducted by Kantar, a global leader in consumer research.

In an ever-changing consumer landscape, the annual Product of the Year Awards are a go-to resource for those looking to find the best new products on the market: With a distinctive red seal that is globally recognized as the vote of confidence from consumers themselves, shoppers can easily cut through the clutter and trust that these products demonstrate the utmost innovation in their respective categories, whether in function, design, packaging or ingredients.

“Given the continued flux and uncertainty over the past two years, we’re prouder than ever to provide consumers with the vote of 4,000 fellow shoppers as a guide they can trust when making important purchase decisions for themselves and their families,” says 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."
