The SupplySide NEXTY Awards recognize innovation, inspiration and integrity across a range of finished product categories - from condition-specific supplements and nutrient delivery innovation to food/beverage and brand storytelling. One winner in each category will be honored at the virtual SupplySide NEXTY Awards presentation.
This year, SupplySide editors and outside expert judges reviewed over 300 products based on three NEXTY I's to whittle the finalists down to 45 notable finalists:
- Innovation: The product or company shows truly creative thinking and execution (not a "me too" approach); uses a newly discovered or rediscovered ingredient, flavor profile, technique or process; fills a legitimate (though perhaps not yet recognized) natural products market need or niche; and/or is predicted to have longer-term impact in the industry.
- Inspiration: The product or company adheres to an unusual or new mission targeting an issue or problem not yet widely addressed; its message/mission is clearly communicated, focused and effective, with real, wide-reaching potential or already proven positive social or environmental impact.
- Integrity: The product or company takes a creative, next-gen approach to clean ingredient(s), sustainability, transparency, traceability and safety/security.
