Tens of thousands will soon gather in Anaheim, California, for the biggest event in the industry—Natural Products Expo West. Expo West’s premier awards program the NEXTYs recognizes the best new CPG products in the natural products industry. Discover now which products rose to the top and will lead the industry forward in 2023.
The 2023 Expo West NEXTY Awards winners were announced March 1 on the Expo West Virtual platform, bringing another exciting round of these natural products industry awards to a close.
New Hope Network received 850 nominations competing for the top prize in 20 categories. Surprise! Yes, that is right, 20 categories. We originally opened up this edition of the NEXTYs with just 19 categories. However, our judges were so impressed by the finalists in the Best New Meat Alternative or Dairy Alternative that we decided to split the category. The category has grown so much over the years and this year’s nominees proved that the alt-dairy and alt-meat categories can now stand on their own.
The other categories represent a wide range of products—supplements, food, beverage, personal care, natural living and more—as well as a broad variety of attributes.
As always, the nominated products were evaluated based on the criteria of innovation, inspiration and integrity—along with potential impact—over the course of two week-long judging rounds at the New Hope Network office in Boulder, Colorado. The 100 brands chosen as finalists during the preliminary round of judging include many with organic certification, regenerative agriculture commitments, strong social or environmental missions and other characteristics that inspire a healthy, sustainable future for people and the planet.
For the second round of judging, a panel of eight industry judges joined the New Hope Network team for the difficult task of selecting a single winner in each category.
