After a successful launch at Vitafoods in Geneva in May, the independent NutraIngredients Awards return in 2016 with more awards and even better representation of the genuine diversity of the world of nutrition.

Next year we will celebrate 12 awards​ with three new ingredient-based categories, an award for outsourcers and more and refined awards for finished products. Popular categories like Readers’ Ingredient of the Year and University Research of the Year return.

“Following the extremely high quality and quantity of entries received for the 2015 edition – more than 130 - and based on feedback from the industry, we have expanded the number of categories from seven to 12,”​ said Graham Twyford, head of food division for EMEA/APAC.

“The diverse range of categories provides multiple industry stakeholders with an opportunity to enter – from finished product manufacturers to ingredients suppliers, contract manufacturers to CROs and universities to marketing agencies… there is a chance for all to get the recognition they deserve.”

“In addition to our judging panel, 300,000+ monthly NutraIngredients readers will again have a strong role to play. The winners of the ‘Readers’ Ingredients of the Year’ and ‘Readers Food Supplement of the Year’ categories will both by decided by an online vote on NutraIngredients. Both of these categories are presented in association with Vitafoods Europe and promise to be hotly contested.”

12 ways to win

Our judging panel​ is in place and entries are open for the free-to-enter awards which culminate in a smashing night at the Starling Hotel on May 11 during Vitafoods Europe in Geneva.

It was a blast last year as 200 folks filled the room to celebrate and be inspired by the innovation on show over dinner, drinks and dancing. 2016 promises to be even better.

The full list of awards is:

“The food industry continues to lunge toward better nutrition at quite a pace and the interplay between that dynamic and the global food supplements industry is driving innovation on so many levels from science, to formulation, to marketing to manufacturing,”​ said NutraIngredients senior editor, Shane Starling.

“The work goes on in small and large companies, in research institutions, in NGOs on a daily basis to deliver foods that improve people’s lives, optimise health and performance and reduce disease. It’s an honour to be able to reward some of that work.”
