Last Thursday I had a fantastic time at the Product of The Year 2015 Awards! The award ceremony was held at Number 8 Northumberland Avenue in LondonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s West End and highlighted winners across 43 different categories. Hosted by comedian and actor Miles Jupp and with entertainment from X FactorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Sam Bailey, the evening was attended by some of the biggest manufacturers in the business, including Procter & Gamble, GlaxoSmithKline, Mars, Tesco, Asda, Unilever, Johnson & Johnsons and Britivic, and my little me too!
Mike Nolan, CEO at Product of the Year said: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Having trust in a product is vital for new parents who only want the very best for their little one. Consumers report that they are 86% more likely to buy a winning item and this level of confidence that the seal of approval brings is invaluable to parents. Brands understand that having the Product of the Year logo truly does set winners apart in a crowded market place, particularly when it comes to such important everyday shopping decisions.Ã¢â‚¬Â
