Hi @Marshmallow 

You can put the following code to advanced editor in power query

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WCstMVtJRCijKTylNLlFwBLIdCwpyUoG0f1FiXjqIAUKxOiNEqROQ7V6aWJYIUeGUmAeEo0pppjQgMy81ERw1mHqcR56eWAA=", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [State = _t, Product = _t, Type1 = _t, Type2 = _t, Type3 = _t, Type4 = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"State", type text}, {"Product", type text}, {"Type1", type text}, {"Type2", type text}, {"Type3", type text}, {"Type4", type text}}),
    #"Unpivoted Columns" = Table.UnpivotOtherColumns(#"Changed Type", {"State", "Product"}, "Attribute", "Value"),
    #"Removed Columns" = Table.RemoveColumns(#"Unpivoted Columns",{"Attribute"}),
    #"Filtered Rows" = Table.SelectRows(#"Removed Columns", each ([Value] <> "")),
    #"Sorted Rows" = Table.Sort(#"Filtered Rows",{{"Product", Order.Ascending}, {"Value", Order.Ascending}})
in
    #"Sorted Rows"

Output
