The big winners
Last year’s event inaugural event attracted more than 100 entries from across the globe.
This year’s awards will feature a panel of esteemed judges with a wealth of experience in APAC’s health and nutrition industry, including Carl Gibson, CEO of Complementary Medicines Australia, Clarence Fong, international marketing consultant for the China Health Care Association; Jeff Crowther, executive director of HPA-China; Michelle Teodoro, food science and nutrition analyst at Mintel, and Iain Brownlee from CSIRO.
The NutraIngredients-Asia Awards will follow the NutraIngredients Awards, which took place last week, and the NutraIngredients-USA Awards in July, which means entrants have the chance to be crowned winners across APAC, Europe and the Americas.
NutraIngredients-Asia editor-in-chief Gary Scattergood said: "Our awards will again shine the spotlight on the companies responsible for innovation and excellence across finished products, ingredients and research.
"We have had recruited a top-class judging panel from across industry and academia to ensure each category is effectively assessed in a fair and impartial manner.
"We are looking forward to crowing the industry's brightest and best in September, where winning an award will be a great promotional springboard for business success at Vitafoods Asia."
