Coles dominates annual product awards with 11 winning items

This week, supermarket products were pitted against each other once again for the annual Product of the Year Awards, with Coles coming out on top in a range of categories.

The world's largest consumer-voted awards program, Product of the Year recognises product innovation and helps shoppers save time and money on quality goods.

Coles managed to win a total of 11 awards, the most of any retailer this year, with thousands of Aussies voting for the winning items.

The award-winning products include Coles brand PerForm Chicken, Kale & Quinoa soup, named the best solution for a healthy, balanced, low-carb meal. The PerForm range is packed with up to 27 grams of protein per meal and is a quick and easy soup to complement exercise, diet or lifestyle goals.

Another standout was Coles' delicious choc fudge treat, the Fibre Bakes Choc Brownie, which has only 90 calories, is a good source of fibre and has less than 7 grams of sugar.

The award-winning Coles Salted Caramel Vienna Sticks are a new twist on the all-time family favourite Viennetta. The product dominated its category thanks to a ripple of flavour and chocolate layers made from Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa.
