Entry Form Fields


The NEXTY Awards recognize the most progressive, innovative, inspiring and trustworthy products in the natural products industry. When nominating your product be prepared to answer the below questions, keeping in mind the 3 I's: Innovation, Integrity and Inspiration.



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 recognized) natural products market need or niche; and/or is predicted to have longer-term impact in the industry.



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.




The product or company takes a creative, next-gen approach to clean ingredient(s), sustainability, transparency, traceability and safety/security.
