New Hope Network’s Community Purpose and Impact Awards recognize individuals and organizations who are directly aligned with New Hope’s mission to cultivate a prosperous, high integrity consumer packaged goods and retail ecosystem that creates health, joy and justice for all people and regenerates the planet.
In its second year, the Community Purpose and Impact Awards continues to reflect the values the natural products industry members support, recognizing that meaningful impact on our health and the environment requires progress and continually challenging the status quo. Once a year at Natural Products Expo West, New Hope Network honors the industry’s greatest change-makers across six categories.
Here are the 2023 Community Purpose and Impact Award winners:
- Ecosystem Award—One Step Closer and The Climate Collaborative.
- Health Award—Clark’s Nutrition Center.
- Joy Award—Angela Marturano and Julia Collins.
- Justice Award—Bi-Rite Family of Businesses.
- Prosperity Award—Ziba Foods Regeneration.
- Sustainability Award—The Almond Project.
For the first time, the Greg Steltenpohl Pragmatic Visionary Award, which encourages and supports innovators, entrepreneurs, and change makers building a more positive, plant-centric food system, was presented during the awards ceremony. This year's winner is Simpli, a food and ingredients company that supports regenerative agriculture throughout the world.
