Created in 2005, the Natexpo Awards single out the most innovative, useful, practical and original products launched on the market during the year in 8 categories:

  • Sweet grocery products
  • Savory grocery products
  • Fresh products
  • Beverages
  • Dietary supplements
  • Cosmetics and hygiene products
  • ECO Products / ECO Services
  • Equipment for retail
  • Ingredients and Raw Materials – new in 2023
  • Seeds – new in 2023

An International Special Mention will also be granted by the jury to an innovation presented by a Natexpo foreign exhibitor.

The judges assess the products on the criteria of innovation, consumer benefits and their main performances. The essential organic certification and products’ retail prices are also taken into consideration. All the products are tasted or tried out by the judges.

Participating in the NATEXPO Awards Jury allows to see the evolution of the organic trend through the offer made to consumers. Each year, we are there to give our point of view on innovations. All the judges come from different sectors and backgrounds, so everyone has their own criteria and it is very interesting to compare the different points of view. Of course, being part of a jury is always a bit hard because you have to make choices. But there are always some products that stand out and are more innovative than others. The organic criterion is mandatory to be selected, but then the products must also be innovative and have a real benefit for consumers. This year, we elected products that, in our opinion, were truly innovative in use, composition, and consumer interest and, if possible, with a rather short list of ingredients. We are indeed much more attentive to the composition and the number of additives than before, this is part of the evolution of our criteria, which is part of a general trend.
Isabelle Martinet, Journalist and member of the NATEXPO Jury NATEXPO since 2018
