New Hope Network announced the winners of the Expo West 2022 NEXTY Awards winners today on the Natural Products Expo Virtual Community platform.
Nearly 1,100 products, a record number, were nominated for these awards, competing in 18 categories—several of which were new this year.
New Hope Network received nearly 1,500 nominations as some brands nominated products in more than one category—making this year’s two-tiered judging process particularly challenging and extremely rewarding. As always, the nominated products were evaluated on the criteria of innovation, inspiration and integrity. New Hope Network's in-house judging team and a group of natural products industry experts chose the 18 winners from the 100 finalist products.
In addition to selecting the winners of the 18 NEXTY categories, New Hope’s editors decided which brands would receive this year’s Editors’ Choice Awards. In a change from previous in-person Natural Products Expo events, this year’s winners were announced virtually along with the other NEXTY Awards to give these brands an equal opportunity to make the most of their recognition before Natural Products Expo West begins on March 8.
Not every finalist or NEXTY winner has a booth at the Anaheim Convention Center, the home of Natural Products Expo West, because the NEXTY Awards competition is open to all natural products brands.
