OmniActive Health Technologies took home the Engredea 2013 Editors’ Choice Award for Best Marketing Campaign on Saturday, March 9 at Expo West in Anaheim, Calif. The win is for the successful marketing of OmniActive’s Lutemax range of lutein products at the show. "Engredea epitomizes innovation and ingenuity of marketing, science and technology in the natural products industry," said Sanjaya Mariwala, Managing Director of OmniActive. "We are thrilled to be honored with this highly coveted marketing award."
The award recognizes OmniActive's creative marketing campaign for their newest education initiative - Lutein for Every Age™. This is a long-term program aimed at raising awareness of the importance of early and consistent supplementation with lutein for supporting healthy vision over a lifetime. Dr. Jeffrey Anshel, OD, FAAO, President of the Ocular Nutrition Society (ONS), and Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry joined the OmniActive team to talk with industry members about the campaign and sign copies of his book Smart Medicine for Your Eyes at the OmniActive booth.
Lutein for Every Age was launched with an unexpected flashmob to deliver the campaign’s message in an exciting and unconventional way to Engredea and Expo West attendees. To view the performance visit http://bit.ly/Wdth9z.
