IMG 4   Twenty three products voted by 2,000 consumers, were announced as Product of the Year Malaysia (POY) winners in their respective categories. “The winners were decided from the results of a consumer research study by Nielsen Malaysia. This was done after a panel of judges met to shortlist and streamline the entries,” said Mr Harmandar Singh, Director of Product of the Year Asia Sdn Bhd (picture). “The Product of the Year logo tells consumers this is a good product, not because we say so, but because consumers chose that product as the best in its category.” “Now in its third year, Product of the Year in Malaysia is fast becoming the benchmark of consumer confidence in Malaysia” adds Harmandar Singh, “Starting July 2015, consumers across Malaysia can shop easily by recognising the winners with the red Product of the Year logo which will be on packaging, advertising and in-store displays.”IMG 1 The Product of the Year awards is in over 40 countries and across the five continents. Winning products for this third Product of the Year Malaysia awards are for new products or innovations in 2015. Founder & President-Director of Product of the Year International Mr Christian Le Bret shared, “When I started the Product of the Year marketing concept in 1986, I didn’t expect it would expand to over 40 countries. Now 29 years later, I can assure you I have witnessed many brands profiting with their Product of the Year wins and continue to succeed in the marketplace.”   LIST OF POY WINNERS 2016/17:   CATEGORY:         Air Freshener WINNER:              Ambi Pur Mood Therapy Collection CATEGORY:         Beverages WINNER:              Milo Nutri G CATEGORY:         Coffee WINNER:              Nescafé Mountain Wash CATEGORY:         Disposable Diapers WINNER:              Drypers Touch CATEGORY:         Growing Up Milk WINNER:              S-26 Gold Progress & S-26 Gold Promise CATEGORY:         Face Cleanser WINNER:              Garnier Pure Active Anti Acne White CATEGORY:          Instant Noodles WINNER:              Indomie Chicken Curry CATEGORY:         Sport Drinks WINNER:              Lucozade Sport (Orange Flavour) CATEGORY:          Bottled Tea WINNER:             Lipton Ice Tea Peach CATEGORY:          Mouthwash WINNER:             Colgate Plax Bamboo Charcoal Mint CATEGORY:          Paint WINNER:             Dulux Pure Air   CATEGORY:          Body Wash WINNER:             Dettol Lasting Fresh With Cucumber Extract CATEGORY:          Snacks WINNER:             Wise Cottage Crisps (Green Curry, BBQ and Original) CATEGORY:          Shampoo WINNER:             Follow Me Nature’s Path Shampoo CATEGORY:          Cola Drinks WINNER:             Coke Zero CATEGORY:          Toothbrush WINNER:             Systema 3D Clean CATEGORY:          Printers WINNER:             Canon Maxify Printers MB5070 MB5370 iB4070 CATEGORY:          Television WINNER:              Samsung SUHD TV JS9000 & SUHD TV JS8000 CATEGORY:          Washing Machine WINNER:             Samsung Activ DualWash CATEGORY:          Cosmetics (Mascara) WINNER:             L’Oréal Paris Miss Manga Instant Doll Lash Mascara CATEGORY:          Air Purifier WINNER:             Panasonic F-PXL45A Dual Usage Air Purifier CATEGORY:          Ice Cream WINNER:            Kit Kat Green Tea Ice Cream CATEGORY:          Men’s Grooming WINNER:            Gillette Fusion ProGlide Flexball Manual Razor & Gilllette Fusion ProGlide Flexball Power Razor
