The 2021 Expo East NEXTY Awards winners were announced on the Natural Products Expo Virtual platform on Sept. 15, 2021, bringing to a close another exciting round of these natural products industry awards.
More than 650 products participated in this edition, competing for the top prize in 23 categories that represent a wide range of product types—from supplements to food, beverage, personal care, natural living and more—as well as 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 that took place at the New Hope Network office in Boulder, Colorado.
The 78 brands chosen as finalists during the first, 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 planet.
From there, a panel of seven industry judges joined the New Hope Network judging team during the final week of judging for the difficult task of selecting a single winner in each category.
