(StatePoint) You want to fill your pantry and fridge with foods and beverages you know your family will love. However, amid the continued uncertainty affecting supply chains and retailers, that’s a task that’s often easier said than done for shoppers like you.
One smart way to save time and money while stocking your virtual or physical cart is by sticking with items that have already been approved by other households.

“The distinctive seal of approval from Product of the Year provides shoppers with a guide they can trust and offers peace of mind when making the most important purchasing decisions – including what you feed your family,” says Mike Nolan, Global CEO, Product of the Year Management. “Whether shopping online or in-store, turning to this guide will help you cut through the clutter, saving both time and money.”
