The NEXTY awards have gained notoriety in the natural products industry and become one of the premier recognitions of the companies and products that help shape the future of natural and healthy living.
NEXTY winners are determined in a two-round judging process that is completed in the Boulder-based New Hope Network office in the weeks prior to Expo East. All nominated products are considered and judges give a special nod to those that display the qualities of Innovation, Inspiration and Integrity.
Winning a NEXTY Award has launched many products and companies to the next level, helping them secure investors, get picked up by distributors and gain the attention of industry insiders.
