    Jaime Fabricant - Brand Manager, Kellogg

    "Winning the Product of the Year for Sultana Bran Buds is great recognition for the innovation that we have brought to market. It’s a great product that meets an unmet consumer need and winning this award is recognition from a third party that we have accomplished this"

    Jaime Fabricant, Brand Manager, Kellogg

    Associate Brand Manager, MARS Petcare

    "In the first 3-6 months after winning POY we got 40 Million media impressions and got Target to carry a third SKU of the product"

    Associate Brand Manager, MARS Petcare (2010 US Winner)

    David Romero - Category Manager, Reckitt Benckiser

    "Product of the Year is a fantastic initiative as it is a consumer panel who vote for the products that they feel should win. Winning is another validation of the success of our products and the innovation we bring to market. Winning brings that extra element of trust and crediblity that consumers can recognise and this will support our brands."

    David Romero, Category Manager, Reckitt Benckiser
