Now in their sixth year, the NutraIngredients Awards are the showcase for the nutrition and supplements industry.  All your questions about the big winners reveal are answered below.

What is a virtual event?

It is an online event that rewards true innovation and cutting-edge research in the healthy foods, supplements and nutrition industry, but as an online broadcast format, not a face-to-face event.

Why is the face-to-face awards event not happening?

In light of the ongoing novel Coronavirus (COVID19) public health emergency, the health and safety of our sponsors, judges, finalists, attendees and staff are our number one priority and taking the continually evolving health concerns and travel restrictions into consideration, we have taken the event online to ensure that we can still reward the wonderful work that our industry does. 

When will it happen?

The broadcast will start at 4pm CET​ on Wednesday 13 May2020​.

How do I watch it?

Easy. It can be watched on your computer or mobile and will be livestreamed simultaneously on​ and on the NutraIngredients Facebook​ page. Stay tuned to (or)​ for more information.

We look forward to seeing you online on Wednesday 13 May for the announcement of the 2020 NutraIngredients Awards winners!
