"Our team is thrilled to support and promote inspired brands who deliver fresh, beautifully designed packages that stimulate brand growth and financial success," said Andrea Fraboni, vice president and global leader of BASES design solutions at NielsenIQ. "This year's winners embody how effectively redesigned packaging can help transform and elevate a brand's bottom line. These companies did it right, and we're excited to showcase their outstanding accomplishments."

Sixty brands submitted package redesigns. The NielsenIQ BASES team used the company's proprietary Retail Measurement Sales (RMS) data to identify which brands demonstrated an increase in sales after the launch of the updated package designs.

In addition to evaluating RMS data, NielsenIQ conducted a behavioral survey of 15,000 shoppers to assess individual entries across the shopper journey. Each product was evaluated to determine if it presented a visually appealing, easily identifiable package that allowed consumers to find the product on shelves and engage them to purchase the item.

The 10 winners exhibited excellent designs and a measurable increase in sales, according to NielsenIQ.
