We have announced the winners of the 2023 NutraIngredients-Asia Awards, held to recognise the brightest and best products, ingredients and initiatives across the nutrition industry.

The winners were announced on the first evening of our Growth Asia Summit, where 250 senior industry leaders are gathering for three days of presentations, panels and networking focused on the biggest growth opportunities for the food, nutrition and beverage sectors in Asia.

Gary Scattergood, Editor-in-Chief and Regional Head, APAC, said: “The awards are designed to be celebration of all that is great in our industry across Asia-Pacific, and we are delighted to back hosting the awards in-person, after three years of digital ceremonies, owing to the pandemic.

“This year we received a record number of entries, with more than 180 submissions spanning products, ingredients and initiatives being received.

“As you might imagine, the sheer number of entries – and the high standards from all that entered – have made the judging process incredibly difficult.

“That’s why I’d like to thank our independent expert panel of judges, which has spent many hours assessing and evaluating all of the entries in great detail. We are deeply grateful for their insights, patience, and guidance throughout the judging process.

“The panel was made-up of senior industry professionals from across the region, with representatives from here in Singapore and across South East Asia, but also from Australia, Japan, China and India.”
