Entries for the awards are welcome across 14 categories, that ranges from ingredients, finished products, companies, and initiatives in the nutrition and dietary supplements industry.
But why should you enter? We’ll give you a few good reasons:
1. IT HELPS YOU STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD
YES, all awards do this, but Nutraingredients-USA is a respected and trusted leader in this industry, and so winning a Nutraingredients-USA Award is significant. We already see our finalists and winners from 2018 and 2019 displaying their achievements in advertisements and at trade shows. You, too, could join the select list of finalists and winners.
2. WE FOCUS ON ALL AREAS OF THE INDUSTRY
Last year, the Editors Award for Industry Initiative of the Year recognized the ABC-AHP-NCNPR Botanical Adulterants Prevention Program as an exemplary educational resource about adulteration in the botanical supply chain, while OmegaQuant’s Prenatal DHA Initiative went home with the Personalized Nutrition Initiative trophy. Our awards go beyond ingredients and products and give other stakeholders the chance to shine.
3. OUR NUTRACHAMPIONS
The industry has a lot of giants, people who have built successful companies and organizations, and had a lasting impact on the health and wellness of Americans. Our NutraChampions to date include Judy Blatman (formerly with the Council for Responsible Nutrition), Paul Schulick (Founder of New Chapter and now For the Biome), and Elan Sudberg (CEO of Alkemist Labs). All three have made profound contributions to the industry. It is an honor for us to recognize these people, particularly those who have done so much, often behind-the-scenes.
4. WE’RE LOOKING FOR THE NEXT BIG THING
Our Start-Up category recognizes those companies that are up-and-coming and are doing it the right way, building their businesses on strong science, robust partnerships and collaborations, and exemplary ethics. Previous winners include Prenexus and Plasma Nutrition. Does your Start-Up have what it takes?
5. WE’VE ADDED CATEGORIES FOR 2020
The 2020 awards have three new categories: Ingredient of the Year: Prebiotic; Ingredient of the Year: Cognitive Function; and Product of the Year: Sports Nutrition. We now have 14 categories across ingredients, finished products, people, companies, and initiatives.
6. OUR JUDGES
Only two of the awards are judged exclusively by the editorial team at Nutraingredients-USA. The other 12 categories are judged by independent industry experts. Being named a finalist or a winner means you’ve convinced some of the most respected and knowledgeable people there are, and that makes your achievement even more impressive.
7. EDITORIAL COVERAGE
Being named a finalist — and of course winning as well — are newsworthy events. The articles we write about the awards put the names of participating companies in front of our readership, which is the most engaged in the business, as Nutraingredients-USA is the No. 1 daily news resource for the dietary supplement industry.
