Natural Products NZ (NPNZ) is a national industry organisation representing this country’s natural products, functional foods, complementary medicines, cosmeceuticals and nutraceuticals industries.
Announcing the winners, NPNZ’s Executive Director Alison Quesnel said ongoing increases in the number and quality of entrants had led to the NPNZ Board deciding to introduce a Supreme Award, for which all category winners are eligible.
“The natural products industry is a significant contributor to New Zealand’s economy with earnings of over $1.4 billion per annum. Adding a Supreme Award to our annual industry awards is a sign of the industry’s maturity and its positive ongoing evolution,” she says.
Ms Quesnel commented that this year’s awards attracted a strong field that was representative of the natural products sector. Entrants ranged from large FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods) companies, through to retailers and smaller companies.
