The International Housewares Association has announced the 32 retailers from 31 countries that comprise the national gia (Global Innovation Award) winners for 2019-2020. UK winner Jarrold of Norwich (announced at The Excellence in Housewares Awards 2019) joins a host of top retailers representing home and housewares retail excellence in the international spotlight.

Celebrating 20 years, the gia programme is organised and globally sponsored by the IHA (International Housewares Association) and The Inspired Home Show. Progressive Housewares is the exclusive UK sponsor for the gia UK retail award. Fittingly, this year’s line-up marks the highest number of participating countries since the programme launched in 2000.
