The extended deadline for the NutraIngredients Awards 2022 is just a few days away, with all entries due by 23.55 CET on Monday, 7 February.

The awards recognise the accomplishments of people and organisations in the nutrition and dietary supplements industry.

This year there are 17 categories to enter​, including Ingredient of the Year: Prebiotic, Ingredient of the Year: Weight Management, Editors Award for Functional Food Innovation, NutraChampion and Personalised Nutrition Initiative.

For those still preparing their submissions, entrants are advised to ensure they are short and simple.

Steve Osborn, Director of The Aurora Ceres Partnership and a member of the judging panel, says: “Make it concise and readable, and keep the message simple.

“I also think the product has to be genuinely new and genuinely different. It's got to solve a genuine problem and we define innovation as a process that adds value, but don't make spurious claims. Don't over-egg the value of what you're trying to achieve.”

Prestige and recognition

Those shortlisted by our esteemed panel of  judges will have the chance to highlight their achievement, showcasing their industry success in the wider market.

Osborn adds: “I think there is a genuine prestige around the Nutralngredients Awards as it’s a great platform with a great profile.

“Independent verification really helps with being able to market any product, so entering the awards and winning or being shortlisted for it adds to the credibility of that technology.

“It’s really valuable to enter and to get external validation. It's about that bit of prestige that the NutraIngredients Awards offer.”

All winners will be announced during an online awards ceremony on Wednesday, 4 May 2022​.

Each entry should have a European-based element, for example having its headquarters in Europe or being commercially available in Europe, to be eligible for an award.
