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 7th year, the SupplySide CPG Editor's Choice Awards recognizes some of the coolest new launches of consumer packaged goods (CPG) products in nearly 30 categories.
This year’s Salty Snacks category continued to target America’s love of salty snacks. Despite competition from a crowded field, U.S. sales of salty snacks are expected to exceed $29 billion in 2022, according to Packaged Facts. Growth is expected to come from products that are as flavorful as possible but also as healthy and nutritious as possible to satisfy the growing demand among consumers who want to indulge without the guilt. Brands are introducing new snacks featuring new flavor combinations and better-for-you ingredients such as proteins, grains, vegetables and superfoods.
One winner in each category will be announced on the SupplySide Central Stage at SupplySide West 2018, held at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The functional beverages winners will be revealed Friday, Nov. 9, from 1:30 to 2 p.m. Click the following link to learn more about the networking event or to register for SupplySide West.
