The prestigious NutraIngredients-USA Awards are open for entries, with our five specialty categories recognizing the best and brightest in women’s health, nutrition research, start-ups and more.

The five specialty categories are Innovations in Women’s Health, Start-up, Nutrition Research Project, and two categories judged by the NutraIngredients-USA editorial team: Industry Initiative of the Year and NutraChampion.

Innovations in Women’s Health​ was added in 2022 and recognizes innovators with the best ingredients or products to promote women’s health, research projects specifically benefiting female health and wellness, and women-led start-ups.

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 Radicle Science, Chinova Bioworks, Brightseed, Comet Bio, Plasma Nutrition and Prenexus Health.

The Nutrition Research Project​ category rewards the best game-changing nutrition research projects that push the boundaries of nutritional science. Previous winners include companies like TSI Group, NutriLeads, Verdure Sciences (three time winners) and the Seipel Group.

Editors’ Awards

Industry Initiative of the Year​ celebrates the best industry initiative and is open to any program, project or platform that is able to demonstrate deep and significant improvements for the industry.
