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.
The weight management category continues to draw interested consumers. According to a November 2017 report from Euromonitor International, “U.S. consumers are continuing to move away from dieting and calorie counting to a more holistic approach to their health. However, weight loss supplements continue to be a major contributor to sales in weight management and well-being due to the high number of overweight and obese Americans.”
Weight loss products continue to take many forms—from bars and beverages to capsules, powders, emulsions and complete nutrition systems. This year’s finalists reflect some of the on-trend strategies, from a ketogenic approach, to combination formulas that offer benefits in other areas of well-being.
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 supplement winners will be revealed Thursday, Nov. 8, from 1:30 to 2 p.m., followed by the food and beverage winners on 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.
