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.
Commenting on being named a finalist, Amber Cerda, NOW (a finalist in the Botanical product category for its Saffron product), said: “An impressive slate of well-qualified independent judges evaluates the products, so being a finalist is a vote of confidence in NOW Saffron’s quality.
“NOW Saffron deserves this award because it sets a standard of quality in an emerging category with tremendous potential, but at high risk for adulteration. Our customers and staff were very happy when NOW’s CurcuFRESH was selected as Botanical of the Year in the inaugural NI-U awards in 2018, and we are hoping to be similarly honored again this year.”
A spokesperson for Uplift Foods (finalist in the Start-up category), said: “Uplift Food entered the awards due to the respect we place on NutraIngredients as a publication who similarly to Uplift Food place value on integrity and science, as well as being particularly active in the gut health and innovation space.
“The recognition of being a finalist is held in high regard and an achievement in itself, and we are proud to be alongside other companies we hold in high esteem.”
“Being a finalist in the 2022 NutraIngredients-USA Awards validates our mission to help our customers “come back stronger”,” said a spokesperson for SaltWrap (finalists in the Sports Nutrition product category for Collagen Synthesis)
“It also inspires us to continue creating new and innovative therapeutic sports nutrition products. We hope that they will benefit our customers beyond their expectations for years to come.”
A spokesperson for Forest Remedies (finalists in the omega-3 product category for its Multi Omega 3-6-9 Ahiflower Gummies), said: “This recognition helps bring more visibility and awareness to the brand and shows our consumers that experts recognize Forest Remedies for its innovative and high-quality products.
“If we are fortunate enough to win this prestigious award, we plan to celebrate in a way that allows our customers, our consumers and everyone who has played a role in making this incredible product to join in with us.”
Winners, which were decided by our expert judges, will be announced on Wednesday, July 13, 2022 during a live broadcast on NutraIngredients-USA.com.
