With dynamic speakers, unique programming, expert panel discussions and workshops, 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. Now in its 6th year, the SupplySide CPG Editor's Choice Awards recognizes some of the coolest new launches of consumer packaged goods (CPG) products across more than 20 categories.
In recent years, the Digestive Supplements category has blossomed to include a wealth of innovative formulations and dynamically different delivery formats. Probiotics have seen some of the greatest diversity, now available in a range of food and beverages—whether hot, cold or room temperature. Consumers are also looking beyond a single strain to formulations blending the benefits of probiotics, prebiotics and digestive enzymes. Education is still needed in the category, particularly as label-reading shoppers look for high CFU counts and buzzwords to try to differentiate between the offerings. Digestive health is a category sure to continue harnessing creativity for years to come.
One winner in each category will be announced on the SupplySide Central Stage at SupplySide West 2017, held at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The supplement winners will be revealed Wednesday, Sept. 27, from 1:30 to 2 p.m., followed by the food and beverage winners on Thursday, Sept. 28, from 1:30 to 2 p.m. Click the following link to learn more about the networking event or to register for SupplySide West.
A display case showcasing all the finalists’ products will be available in the Expo Hall.
