On 23 March 2010, SymphonyIRI Group, Inc (IRI), an industry-recognized provider of market consumer and shopper intelligence, announced its 15th annual New Product Pacesetters – a report highlighting the most successful new consumer packaged goods products of 2009.

This year, we were recognized by IRI for our outstanding achievements in innovation by being named the most innovative manufacturer in the CPG industry of the last decade.  This honor reflects our efforts in the development of:

  • Five of the Top 10 Non-Food Pacesetters in 2009,
  • Highest aggregate dollar sales as measured by Pacesetters in each of the last ten years, and
  • More of the Top 25 Pacesetters than any other CPG manufacturer in each of the last ten years.

Melanie Healey, Group President P&G North America, was on hand to accept the award at IRI's annual conference.  Listen to her speak about why this recognition is especially important to our business.
