âFor the past two years, the annual Natural Products Awards are given to companies that demonstrate merit and are consistently moving toward advancing the industry,â said Jim Wagner, publisher of Nutritional Outlook.
Each year, over 150 companies including nutrition, retail, health and pharmaceutical companies are considered for the award which covers categories including ingredients, packaging, research and manufacturing. The publication selected Fortitech as an award winner under the ingredients category for its innovative products showcased recently at the annual Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Expo in New Orleans, La.
