After hours of careful consideration and taste-testing, the New Hope Network content team and a group of 10 industry experts determined who will pitch for the chance to snag more than $35,000 in New Hope Network services, including a free booth at Natural Products Expo West 2023.
Emceeing the event is Priyanka Khole of Svaa Haa Foods and Slow Money Northern California.
