New York, New York – The American Choice Awards (America’s Largest Consumer Vote) today announced the kick-off conference for the 2016 national Best Brand Awards. More than 1,500 brands are judged by American consumers across 190 categories this year in important Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) categories such as: Food and Beverage, Beauty, Household Care, Health and Personal Care, & Kids and Pets. Category Winners will be announced in national media outlets throughout the year as the consumer votes are tabulated.
A distinguished Jury of Editors, category experts and Primary Shoppers have chosen a stellar group of 2016 Nominees including selections from Colgate-Palmolive, Nestlé, Starbucks and L’Oréal, as well as many leading smaller brands. “The Best Brand Awards are 100% consumer-voted, so all Finalists large and small have an equal opportunity to win The Choice of American Consumers®”, said Jen Johansen, American Choice Awards Senior Vice President of Voting and Research.
“The Best Brand Award process is very comprehensive and represents the voices of consumers from across America”, added Ms. Johansen. Conducted by The National Opinion Research Center at The University of Chicago, the AmeriSpeak® OMNIBUS Research Platform is the most scientifically rigorous statistical survey of consumers in the U.S. The data are weighted to be representative of the entire U.S. population of consumers aged 18+ based on age, gender, education, race/ethnicity, location, and income. Voters evaluate Category-specific criteria as well as three key factors: Familiarity, Quality and Purchase Consideration. Finalists earn a numerical grade for each criterion, and Winners are determined by the greatest number of total points earned.
Today’s consumers are overwhelmed with options, and more than ever, recommendations and ratings help with our buying decisions. However, most product reviews and ratings are not easily accessible without significant time and effort. Shoppers instantly recognize the choice of American consumers by the Best Brand Seal on their websites and products.
