Organic farmer-owned co-operative Organic Valley won a 2023 Product of the Year USA award last week with its range of coffee creamers. The organic dairy co-op’s creamers are lactose-free, contain no artificial ingredients and have less sugar.
The Product of the Year red seal is a distinctive mark that allows shoppers to easily identify the top trendsetting products on the market, voted on by 40,000 consumers, while also serving as a marketing tool for brands to build consumer awareness.
Jaclyn Cardin, Organic Valley chief brand officer, said: “It is an honor to be the first farmer-owned cooperative endorsed by Product of the Year. Our team at Organic Valley set out to make everyday coffee better with a delicious, high-quality creamer that isn't filled with artificial fillers and a laundry list of synthetic ingredients. Organic Valley creamers add a delicious and smooth flavor to coffee without overpowering drinks and recipes. Receiving the Product of the Year red seal reinforces that we achieved that goal with our Flavored Creamers. And, consumers can feel good knowing that every Organic Valley purchase helps save small organic family farms.”
Across the categories, Aldi Inc. won the Cheese category with its own-brand Emporium Selection Feta Block Assortment – a range that includes traditional feta, feta in brine, and tomato and basil feta. The budget supermarket chain also scooped the Frozen Dessert award with its Sundae Shoppe Gelato, a dairy ice cream available in Caramel Cookie Crunch and Triple Chocolate flavors.
