Elections have consequences. Here’s your chance to chime in with your vote on what you believe to be the best new ingredient of the year, and the best new finished product featuring a functional ingredient—part of the 19th annual NutrAward competition, the industry’s longest-running awards competition.
The voting page is right here, and the vote continues through noon on Monday, Feb. 20.
The NutrAward recognizes and rewards ingredients suppliers that have ingredients with scientific merit, efficacy, market potential, safety, innovation and the ability to increase market credibility. On the finished products side, the 6th annual NutrAward taps companies that are playing in an emerging category with a creative product concept, a distinct health application, unique packaging and matchless marketing. Ingredients and products have to have been introduced since Jan. 1, 2015.
The NutrAward reception to announce the winners takes place in Anaheim, at Expo West/Engredea, on Thursday, March 9, 5:30-7 p.m., at the Hilton Sun Deck. RSVP to join the fun and pageantry here.
