With dynamic speakers, unique educational summits, expert panel discussions and a vibrant exhibit hall, SupplySide West is the go-to event for natural products professionals. The creative collaborations and innovative ingredients that are a hallmark of the event are also the driving force behind the thriving marketplace. As such, the 2016 gathering marks the 5th annual celebration of the SupplySide CPG Editor's Choice Awards—recognizing some of the coolest new launches of consumer packaged goods (CPG) products across more than 20 categories.
The Sweet Snacks category includes better-for-you treats that don’t skimp on taste. Finalists include a dairy-free, organic coconut milk-based ice cream packed with Snickerdoodle chunks; Non-GMO Product Verified gluten-free baked cinnamon banana chips; a green-juice frozen treat with peanut butter, banana, raw organic agave and organic vanilla; portable banana chocolate snacks for kids that contain 7 g of protein per pouch; and a rich, indulgent Greek-style chocolate frozen yogurt.
One winner in each category will be announced on the SupplySide Central Stage at SupplySide West 2015, held at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The food and beverage winners will be revealed Friday, Oct. 7, from 1:30 to 2 p.m., followed by the food and beverage winners on Friday, Oct. 7, from 1:30 to 2 p.m. Check out the SupplySide West website to learn more about the networking event and to register.
