Focusing on true innovation, long-term market success and cutting-edge research, the NutraIngredients-USA Awards honor the best and brightest in ingredients, finished products, companies, people, and initiatives in the nutrition and dietary supplements industry.
Here's a sample of what some of our finalists are saying:
Commenting on being named a finalist, Jocelyn Berube from InnoVactiv (finalists in the Beauty from Within ingredient category for Myoceram), said: “We are very proud of having been selected as a finalist for this year’s NutraIngredients-USA award. We entered this prestigious award to celebrate the values that drive us every day at innoVactiv - rigor, integrity, reliability, team spirit and mutual respect. We feel that Myoceram represents these values perfectly. We are pleased that this NutraIngredients-USA award nomination allows this important message to be shared with the industry.”
Liz Clark from Nitta Gelatin, which is a finalist in the same category for Replenwell by Wellnex, said: “NutraIngredients-USA consistently does an outstanding job of not only identifying trends, but also diving deep into the scientific evidence to help turn raw data into valuable insights for their readers. In the same vein, the NutraIngredients-USA awards introduce customers and consumers to the most innovative, effective, and exciting ingredients and products available to the domestic nutraceutical markets.
“The timing of these awards really couldn’t be better – it’s our first full week back in the office after working from home since last March. We’re planning a (LIVE and IN PERSON) watch party in the conference room, which will double as a long-awaited reunion for our US team!”
“On the right track”
Marc van Maris, ChildLife Essentials (finalist in the Omega-3 Product of the Year category for “ChildLife Essentials Omega-3 DHA + Choline SoftMelts”), said: “Being a finalist in the NutraIngredient Awards would confirm that we are on the right track toward hitting our mission of continued development and market release of high quality, innovative products, and that the industry recognizes the work being done at ChildLife Essentials.”
Fleur Cushman, Health Currancy (UK) (CurraNZ is a finalist in the Sports Nutrition Product of the Year Category), commented: “We regard NutraIngredients as the foremost voice and platform for the nutraceuticals, functional food and sports supplement industry globally. A NutraIngredients-USA award is always hard-won and provides important recognition for any brand to showcase great products, innovation and cutting-edge developments in key markets.”
Dan Richard, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing, NOW (finalist in the Editors Award for Industry Initiative of the Year category for “NOW publicizing quality concerns about supplements purchased on Amazon”), commented: “We very much appreciate the credibility that comes with the high standards underpinning the NutraIngredients-USA award program.
“It was also apparent that some companies felt threatened by needing to meet the higher standards Amazon imposed after we took our testing program public and think it’s important that the message go out that industry self-policing to ensure quality is actually a very good thing.”
Melanie Bush, Artemis International (finalist in the Editors Award for Industry Initiative of the Year category for “The Elderberry Anti-Adulteration Initiative”): “Being a Finalist for this award is important to us because it highlights what can be done when passionate companies put their resources, time, and expertise to work toward the greater good. We hope it motivates other companies and opens pathways to collaboration and communication within our whole industry.”
Winners, which were decided by our expert judges, will be announced on Wednesday, July 14, 2021 at 11am CT during a live broadcast on NutraIngredients-USA.com.
