ZURICH, Feb. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, five years in the making, 'Best Buy Award' has grown to become a globally recognized program of the respected international organization 'ICERTIAS' (International Certification Association), registered head office Zurich, Switzerland.

The innovative Best Buy Award research and certification project was launched precisely five years ago to the very day, February 23, 2010.

The idea behind the Best Buy Award project was to develop a research and certification platform that would reward the best products and services on the market, those which, based on the experiences and opinions of consumers themselves, verifiably offer the best price-quality ratio to their customers.

From the very beginning, only the products and services that consumers assessed as the overall Number 1 in terms of price-quality ratio in a given market category were presented the prestigious blue Best Buy Award.

Achieving analysis through a proven, transparent research methodology, 'Best Buy Award' quickly has become accepted by both consumers and industries around the world, particularly on the European continent.

In addition to the Best Buy Award, ICERTIAS also issues today the globally recognized certificate QUDAL (QUality meDAL), as well as the newly introduced ICERTIAS Customers' Friend.

The international success of ICERTIAS is clearly evidenced in that both local and global media -including major outlets like NBC, ABC, and Fox--regularly cite and present the results of its research.

In just five years, ICERTIAS certificates have successfully been awarded in more than thirty countries on four continents--from Kazakhstan in Asia, to Kenya and Ghana in Africa, numerous European countries, and all the way to the American continent and Chile in the far west.

Numerous well-known multinational companies proudly bear ICERTIAS certification medals, including Bauhaus, Bonduelle, Bosch, Braun, Danone, Dr. Oetker, Ericsson, Hofer, Henkel, Humanic, Lactalis, Lidl, Lukoil, Nestle, Pernod Ricard, Procter & Gamble, Spar, T-Mobile, Unilever, Vaillant, Volkswagen, and many others.
