Informa Exhibitions announced the finalists for its seventh annual SupplySide CPG Editor’s Choice Awards. Five consumer packaged goods (CPG) products were selected by the SupplySide editorial team for achievements in innovation and market impact in 28 categories.
“SupplySide West is the perfect venue to showcase the innovative products we recognize as part of our annual Editor’s Choice Awards,” said Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief, Natural Products INSIDER. “Each fall in Las Vegas, we gather to celebrate quality, smart products, all in an environment where CPG companies make connections on the show floor and learn about market forces in our educational programs to serve their next big launch.”
One winner in each category will be announced at SupplySide West 2018 during the SupplySide CPG Editor’s Choice Awards Presentations, set for Nov. 8 and 9 at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“The SupplySide and INSIDER editors researched, reviewed and tasted our way through nearly 600 nominations to narrow the field to 140 truly notable products that serve to better the health of consumers,” Almendarez said.
