Aldi and Walgreens Score Big with Parent Tested Parent Approved

International product awards organization, PTPA Media Inc., announced the latest round of recipients of the Parent Tested Parent Approved Seal of Approval. The results come after an extensive product approval process where consumers selected from a community of over 130,000 testers across North America put products to the test in the context of their daily lives. The 36 2018 seal recipients include one private brand winner from Walgreens and 26 from Aldi.

“Shopping is changing. We’re doing more online. We’re expecting more in store. But with so many options, making the right choice can be more confusing than ever”, says Sharon Vinderine, Founder and CEO of PTPA Media. “That’s the value of the PTPA Seal of Approval. It brings clarity and trust.”

How Brands Build “Mom” Trust
“Over the years, there’s been a lot of trust lost between consumers and brands, which is why we’re seeing more scrutiny of brand marketing claims than ever before,” explained Vinderine. “Ask any mom how she makes her purchasing decisions and she’ll tell you she trusts other moms more than brand marketing.” “Authenticity is the only currency that matters, and that comes from the assurance that other moms have experienced a product personally and found that it met or exceeded their expectations. PTPA’s Seal of Approval conveys this all at a single glance.”
