National Best Brand Winners



New York, NY – The American Choice Awards Announces National Best Brand Award Winners

More than 1,500 brands are judged by consumers across 300 important categories within Food and Beverage, Beauty, Household Care, Personal Care, Kids, Pets & Tech. “The pace of innovation is amazing, but often confusing for consumers. We extend a hearty congratulations to our American Choice Awards Best Brand winners who strive for excellence and set themselves apart”, said Faith Curie-King, American Choice Awards Senior Vice President.

Today’s consumers are overwhelmed with options. More than ever, recommendations and ratings are key factors in making better buying decisions. As the most recognized competition of its kind, Best Brand Award winners are instantly recognized as The Choice of American Consumers®. Winners also feature prominently in the American Choice Awards enhanced media and Winner Announcements on National TV. “The expanded outreach and planning for a Netflix Special is generating a lot of attention, and we’re looking forward to working with the Best Brand Award winners to empower even more consumers this year”, added Curie-King.

Nationwide category studies are conducted using the M-CAP (Multimedia Consumer Aggregation Platform) and the proprietary balloting system developed with experts at The National Opinion Research Center at The University of Chicago. The NORC AmeriSpeak® OMNIBUS Research is the most scientifically rigorous statistical survey of consumers in the U.S. Consumers evaluate a spectrum of key factors such as Quality, Value, Performance, Reputation, Innovation, Safety, Materials, Sustainability, Price, Design, Awareness, and Recommendation Likelihood, as well as category criteria, which is unique to the American Choice Awards process. Brands receiving the highest numerical scores in these criteria earn the National Best Brand designation. “The data are weighted so that the results are representative of the entire U.S. population of Primary Shoppers. The Best Brand Award process is the most comprehensive methodology of its kind”, said Jen Johansen, American Choice Awards Senior Vice President of Polling and Research. “We welcome this stellar group of innovators to The American Choice Awards winner’s circle”.
