MANCHESTER, N.H. (March 22, 2018) – MegaFood®, an award-winning dietary supplement brand whose products are made with real, whole foods, was named winner of the New Hope Network 2018 Expo West NEXTY Award for outstanding new products in the natural products industry. MegaFood’s newly launched B12 Energy Ginger Gummies were recognized for Best New Supplement Delivery Format. The honor was announced and presented earlier this month at Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA.
“We are thrilled to be selected as a NEXTY Award Winner,” said Robert Craven, CEO of MegaFood. “We’ve worked tirelessly to craft the highest quality gummy supplements you can find. From sourcing nutritious whole foods from our trusted network of Farm Fresh partners to consulting with our consumer panel to obtain feedback on taste and packaging design, we wanted to deliver a product that would truly set the bar for gummy vitamins in the marketplace. We’re honored to be acknowledged by the New Hope Network and NEXTY Awards.”
Known for recognizing products that display innovation and integrity, the NEXTY Awards celebrate brands that help to advance the natural products industry by delivering more healthful, trusted and sustainable products to consumers. More than 890 products were submitted and vetted through a two-tier judging process by the New Hope Network content team and a panel of industry judges.
MegaFood B12 Energy Ginger Gummies, which are USDA Certified Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, certified Glyphosate Residue Free and plant-based, were recognized as one of only 22 NEXTY Award winners across several award categories.
“Our 22 winning products represent the future of the natural products industry where sustainability and transparency are the norm,” says Jessie Shafer, content director at New Hope Network and NEXTY judge. “Our industry can have a huge influence on how big manufacturers and mainstream buyers think about consumer packaged goods. The winners of our NEXTY awards inspire change and integrity in everything from ingredients to packaging.”
Specially created for adults, the new line of MegaFood Gummies are made with real food sourced from the company’s Farm Fresh Partners, including Uncle Matt’s® Organic, Kauai Organic Farms, and James Lake Farms.
