Entries close in less than a month – 3 February. Look here for entry details in all 13 categories including nutrient-focused entrants, finished products, university research, start-ups and 3rd party service providers like contract manufacturers, product certifiers and PR agencies.
Winners will be announced at the Starling Hotel on 10 May in Geneva on the second evening of Vitafoods Europe. If last year is anything to go by a joyous jamboree is on the cards!

“We’ve added some ingredient-based categories and revamped entry criteria across-the-board to better target true nutrition innovation – wherever it may come from,” said NutraIngredients senior editor Shane Starling.
“There is so much happening in food supplements, healthy foods and nutrition around the world you can never capture it all, but we hope the independence of these awards will provide some kind of measure of what is truly innovative in global nutrition. The kind of work that improves people’s lives, optimises health and performance and reduce diseases deserves reward and recognition and that is what the NutraIngredients Awards are all about.”
“250 folks from all over the world had a smashing night at the Awards ceremony last year in Geneva and we can’t wait to make it all happen again in 2017. Come forth all ye nutra stars!”
