Expo West 2014 NEXTY Award nominees: Shaping the future of natural products

Every year at Natural Products Expo West, New Hope Natural Media's editors and trend researchers partner with the Sterling-Rice Group to find the products and brands they predict will shape the future of the natural products industry. The best of the best receive NEXTY nominations, which recognize companies that represent not only the most innovative edge of the natural products industry, but also its deeply held social and environmental values. Get to know this year's 105 NEXTY nominees, listed here in alphabetical order, and then vote for your favorite brands on our NEXTY polling page.

Prefer to peruse the NEXTY nominees by category? We've built separate galleries for the supplement and ingredient nominees, the beauty and personal care nominees and the food and beverage nominees.

In June, our team of researchers will announce the Editor’s Choice winners in the food and beverage, supplements, and natural living categories. But, our opinions only mean so much; we also want to recognize the brands you think deserve a NEXTY Award! So head over to our NEXTY voting page and cast your vote for those companies you think are doing the most to shape a healthy future for natural products. Voting is now open and closes May 26.

The Editor’s Choice and Popular Vote winners will be profiled in our 2015 NEXT Forecast report, which publishes in June. We will also have an awards ceremony for the NEXTY winners at Natural Products Expo East, Sept. 18-20 in Baltimore.

The NEXT Forecast report is a joint venture between New Hope and Boulder, Colo.-based Sterling-Rice Group. Check out nextforecast.com to learn more about this premier insider’s guide to where the natural products market is now—and where it's headed.

The NEXTY Awards and NEXT Forecast are part of New Hope's NEXT suite of products, which were created to support and accelerate innovation within the natural products industry. Learn more at nextknows.com
