This year, the New Hope Network team found themselves especially challenged with the task of choosing the 2023 Expo East NEXTY Award Winners.
At New Hope Network, we understand that assessing innovation, inspiration and integrity in the natural products industry is no straightforward endeavor. Therefore, we brought in a select group of industry professionals to lend their expertise in the final round of judging.
This year's eight distinguished guest judges bring expertise from various corners of the CPG industry: natural products founders, retailers, journalists and more. Together, they comprise a formidable team who helped identify the standout products in 20 different categories.
Out of the extensive pool of 69 finalists, these guest judges are entrusted with the critical duty of recognizing the products that have distinguished themselves from the rest. The awards began with hundreds of nominated products, all vying for a coveted spot among the finalists. Only the best of the best have made it this far.
The NEXTY Awards honor the natural products industry's finest, spotlighting brands that embody innovation, inspiration and integrity. As the judges gather for each evaluation round, they engage in thoughtful discussions, sample the products and engage in measured deliberations to determine the best examples of these qualities. These deliberations, while earnest, are not without their challenges.
