Product of the Year Canada has unveils this year’s winners, giving some suggestion as to what product innovations are exciting consumers across a range of different CPG, household goods and appliance categories.

Product of the Year Canada is the local outfit of the international awards program, which focuses on new product innovation in 42 different markets. Operating in Canada for over nine years, the awards are presented in conjunction with Rogers Media.

To come to its decisions, Product of the Year takes submissions from companies for products they’d like to have in consideration, which are then narrowed down to a list of finalists by a jury of industry experts. The winners are selected by a consumer poll conducted by TNS Canada, weighing factors such as satisfaction, innovation, appeal and intent to purchase.

The full list of winners across categories can be found below.

In February, shopper insights company BrandSpark unveiled its own list of best new product winners, showing a desire for health-conscious food and premium ingredients when it comes to product innovation.
