The votes are in, and the 2015 Natural Products Expo West NEXTY Award winners have been selected. These are the companies that voters and New Hope Network editors believe represent what tomorrow's healthy living landscape will look like.

The Popular Vote and Editors' Choice winners (featured in this gallery along with the Popular Vote runners-up) will be profiled in our 2016 NEXT Forecast report, which publishes in June, and recognized at an awards ceremony at Natural Products Expo East.

More than 8,800 votes were cast in the Popular Vote contest, and New Hope editors were challenged to pick just one Editors' Choice winner in each category. So challenged, in fact, that for two of the three categories, we selected more than one winner. In food and beverage, we selected three companies that are taking different approaches to a majorly important issue: safe, sustainable seafood. And in the beauty and natural living category, we picked one company in the beauty space and one in the natural living space.

Here's where you can learn more about the criteria used to select NEXTY nominees and winners.
