Entries for the awards are welcome across 17 categories, that ranges from ingredients, finished products, companies, and initiatives in the nutrition and food 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. Previous finalists and winners proudly display 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
In addition to the ingredient and product products, we also give other stakeholders the chance to shine with categories that include Sustainability Initiative, Innovation in Women's Health, Nutrition Research Project, and our Start-up Award.
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, Paul Schulick, Elan Sudberg, Asma Ishaq, Suzanne Shelton, Loren Israelsen, and Rick Kingston. All 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 Chinova Bioworks, Brightseed, Comet Bio, Plasma Nutrition, and Prenexus Health. Does your Start-Up have what it takes?
5. WE’VE CHANGED THE CATEGORIES FOR 2023
The 2023 awards feature some changes to previous years: We’ve watched the market evolve, and consulted with our judges, and we’ve decided to replace probiotic and prebiotic with “microbiome modulation” ingredient and product categories. We have also added a new award to commemorate the legacy of Dr Hector Lopez, who passed late last year at the age of 46. The Hector Lopez Excellence in Sports Nutrition Science Award will celebrate the best sports nutrition research of the past 12 months.
We now have 17 categories across ingredients, finished products, people, companies, and initiatives.
6. OUR JUDGES
With the exception of our Editors’ Award, all of our 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 functional food, beverage, and supplements industry.
