Created in 2005, the Natexpo Awards single out the most innovative, useful, practical and original products launched on the market during the year.
In 2022, more than 240 new products – 21 % more than in 2020 – were submitted to the jury, in 8 categories of the Awards Competition : fresh products, sweet grocery products, savory grocery products, beverages, dietary supplements, cosmetics and hygiene products, household and personal products and services and, equipment for retail and brands.
In 2022, a new prize was created to award one international product across all categories, as an International Special Mention from the jury, in order to highlight the potential of innovation of Natexpo foreign exhibitors.
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.
