Continuing its history of recognizing individuals and organizations who are directly aligned with New Hope Network's mission, the company presented eight Community Purpose and Impact Awards in six categories during Natural Products Expo West.
New Hope Network'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—is illustrated throughout the industry, every day. New Hope staff members see it in hundreds of ways through the NEXTY Awards program, from the day products begin arriving at the door until the awards are announced.
Exhibitors and attendees at both Expo West and Expo East also see this mission in action through the education sessions the attend the booths they visit every spring and autumn. It would be impossible to honor every person and organization that shines in the natural and organic natural products environment, so a committee of New Hope Network leaders chose to spotlight these outstanding members this year.
