For the first time this year at Natural Products Expo East, editors and trend researchers from New Hope Natural Media and Sterling-Rice Group scoured the show floor to find the products and brands they thought would shape the future of the natural products industry. The best of the best received NEXTY nominations, which recognize the companies that embody not only the most innovative edge of the natural products industry but also its deeply held social and environmental values.
From these nominations, we choose two types of winners in each category: The Editors’ Choice winners, which are selected by New Hope and SRG’s team of NEXT Forecast researchers, and the Popular Vote winners chosen by YOU.
Read about our 2014 Expo East NEXTY nominees here and then vote here (voting is now closed) for the one nominee in each category that you think most deserves the coveted NEXTY Award.
Voting begins at noon MT on Wednesday, Oct. 8 and ends at noon on Thursday, Nov. 13. The Popular Vote winners, along with the Editors’ Choice winners, will be announced on Wednesday, Nov. 19. They will also be recognized in a ceremony at Expo West 2015.
