BOCA RATON, Fla., March 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- REDCON1, the fastest growing sports supplement brands on the market, known for their high-quality, innovative fitness supplements, wins yet another consumer voted award by being named winner of the 2019 Vitamin Shoppe Battle of the Brands. In a day and age where unsubstantiated claims and anecdotal evidence tend to rule, third party, consumer validation is more important than ever.
Battle of the Brands is a competition created by Vitamin Shoppe in 2018 to see the brand that fans vote as the number 1 sports nutrition brand; essentially their brand of the year voting system. The tournament is held digitally, much like NCAA March Madness, where a bracket system is used, putting 16 brands up against one another to be voted on by fans, through multiple rounds. In addition to the Brand of the Year, fans voted on 4 key major categories – Best New Product, Best Pre-Workout, Best BCAA and Best Protein Bar. This year, the final round was REDCON1 vs Kaged Muscle for the championship, where REDCON1 won an unanimous victory in all individual categories as well as the prestigious Battle of the Brand overall award.
"Over the past 3 years we have won many consumer-voted awards, all of which we are extremely grateful for," states REDCON1 Vice President Eric Hart. "It means that fans and consumers share the same love and passion for our brand and products that we do. For us, Vitamin Shoppe was extremely important to get into since we all shop there. We have only been on shelves in Vitamin Shoppe for about 10 months, now have over 40 SKUs and are the fastest growing brand in their history, needless to say we've made some major moves in a short period of time. That all being said, for us to win an award by the fans for a retailer that has a personal connection, it means the world to all of us here at REDCON1."
