This year, New Hope Network replaced its Hall of Legends Awards with the first Community Purpose and Impact Awards, which recognize people and organizations who are working to move the natural products industry forward.
New Hope Network's Content Marketing Director Fran Schoenwetter presented the awards on March 10 at Natural Products Expo West. Mid-Day Squares won the Prosperity Award, which is given for achieving success while not losing sight of integrity or while being accomplished in the areas of health, joy, justice, sustainability or purpose. Afterward, she asked Nick Saltarelli, co-founder of Mid-Day Squares, about inspiration and the true meaning of prosperity.
"Prosperity is when you break your own glass ceiling," Saltarelli says in this video.
In addition to the Prosperity Award, individuals, activists, businesses and organizations are eligible for these honors:
Ecosystem Award—For meaningful action to improve, connect or align the purpose-driven natural products industry ecosystem.
Health Award—For meaningful accomplishments in the areas of human health or nutrition.
Justice Award—For significant accomplishments in the areas of food justice, climate justice or healthy food access.
Joy Award—For purposeful efforts to bring more joy to the natural products ecosystem or to consumers.
Regeneration and Sustainability Award—For consequential activity related to regenerative agriculture, stewardship, sustainability or regenerative business.
