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.
The Sports Nutrition Food and Beverage category is land of great opportunity for companies targeting athletes and active consumers. It is not just about how to deliver protein in beneficial levels and in more convenient and tasty ways. In addition to chocolate-covered protein balls and protein-infused peanut butter, this year’s entries included antioxidants from the Mediterranean diet, botanical extracts from South America, nitric oxide-boosting beet juice and supplemental ketones to help those trying to maintain the challenging ketogenic (very low carb) diet. The finalists this year represent a cross-section of this range of ingredients and product types.
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.
