Innovation. Inspiration. Integrity. Those three i's are the foundation for the NEXTY Awards, the pinnacle biannual award bestowed upon worthy contenders in the natural products industry at Natural Products Expo West and Expo East.
This round of NEXTYs drew a record number of nominations. In a two-tiered judging process, New Hope Network editors, Sterling-Rice Group staff and industry judges narrowed them down to a pool of 72 product finalists across 22 categories to represent what’s next in the natural products industry. The judges selected between two and six finalists per category, depending on the number of total entries for the category.
These products will be highlighted at Expo West and beyond. Only one product per category, however, will go on to win the coveted NEXTY Award. The 22 winners from this pool, plus the Editors' Choice NEXTY Award winners selected on-site in Anaheim, will receive their awards right in their booths on Saturday, March 10 and Sunday, March 11.
