The winners of the Natural & Organic Awards Europe 2017 were announced yesterday (Monday 3 April) at Natural & Organic Products Europe.

The awards, which celebrate the standout brands and products of the year, were hosted by Natural Products News (in association with the Soil Association) and presented by well-known food and health blogger Madeleine Shaw.

“I’m just so inspired by all the amazing products,” said Shaw.  “I can’t wait to try out all these different, delicious things at the show today.”

“The Natural & Organic Awards are now in their 22nd year, and it’s been fantastic to see them grow in stature – to the point, where now, they are the recognised benchmark for excellence in natural and organic,” said Jim Manson, editor in chief of Natural Products News.

“But as well as celebrating fantastic businesses and great products, the Awards also provide us with an opportunity to stop for a moment and celebrate the people – and the shared values – that make our natural and organic industry so special, and enduring.  Congratulations to all of our fantastic winners and finalists,” he said.

The ‘best new product’ awards were voted for by visitors to the show on Sunday 2 April and then judged by a panel of leading industry experts; including Julian Wright (‎purchasing director at The Health Store), Andy Derbyshire (buying controller at Tree Of Life), Alan Martin (owner/retailer of Food For Thought Kingston and Guildford), Wendy Atkinson (MD of Modern Herbals), and Shona Wilkinson (technical and corporate nutritionist).  The 13 winners were selected from over 320 New Product Showcase entries, in categories covering food, health, beauty and natural living.
