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.
Americans love to snack, especially on snacks that satisfy the sweet tooth. But in today’s health-minded society, more consumers are turning to sweet snacks that also contain better-for-you ingredients. This year, products vying for the 2017 CPG Editor’s Choice Award in the Snacks: Sweet category include a brownie mix featuring clean label ingredients and ethically-sourced Equal Exchange® organic Fair Trade chocolate chips and cocoa powder, a new twist on animal crackers that contain 12 g of protein per serving, granola bites that strike a balance between sound nutrition and deliciousness, bite-sized brownies free from high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs) and artificial flavors or colors, and Non-GMO Project verified chocolate chip cookies made with 11 simple plant-powered, nutrient-dense ingredients.
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—presented by Cargill—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.
