Sampler's Audience Selects The NEXTY Consumer Choice Winning Brands

September 27, 2022
Marie Chevrier Schwartz

The Natural Products Expo and Sampler have been partnering since 2018 to power the NEXTY Consumer Choice Award. The NEXTY Awards recognize the most progressive, innovative, inspiring and trustworthy products in the natural products industry. Brands who enter their product into the NEXTY Awards receive unprecedented exposure to New Hope Network’s editorial team and unique recognition at the Natural Products Expo.

The NEXTY Consumer Choice Award is the only award voted on by consumers. In preparation for both the Natural Products Expo East and the Natural Products Expo West, natural products brands are invited to submit their product for review with the Sampler audience. Sampler's audience reviews the new innovative products submitted by brands and the feedback received identifies winning brands across several categories. The program is a great way for brands to get their new innovations in the hands of consumers ahead of their products hitting shelves or alongside a launch. The feedback can be leveraged to create retailer pitches as per explained in a recent webinar produced in partnership with New Hope.

Past winning brands include Primal Kitchen, Enjoy Life and CV Sciences. See Primal Kitchen's past winning video here:

Meet the Winners for Expo East NEXTY Consumer Choice Award 2022

Chicas' Original Corn Tortilla Chips - Best New Food or Beverage

Chicas makes small-batch, family recipe tortilla chips out of Los Angeles, California. Chicas starts out with homemade tortillas that are then fried and flavored perfectly. As distribution grew, the brand even created machines to mimic its handmade method and ensure that the homemade authenticity stayed intact.

Olika's Hydrating Hand Sanitizer - Best New Lifestyle or Supplement Product

Olika’s Mindfulness Hydrating Hand Sanitizer is formulated with hyaluronic acid derived from sugarcane and reishi mushroom to naturally draw moisture into the skin while effectively eliminating 99.9% of germs. Unlike other single-use hand sanitizers, OLIKA’s packaging is refillable and recyclable to ensure its products are conscious of not only hands, but the environment too. Dedicated to producing safe and effective products, OLIKA denounces over 2,000 unsafe substances like phthalates and parabens. Always cruelty-free, vegan and non-GMO, Olika’s ingredients are consciously sourced from farm to skin. Reishi mushroom consciously sourced from Asia helps to boost immunity, fight fatigue and relieve stress. Additionally, formatting the hand sanitizer as a spray provides 15 times more uses than traditional gels of a similar size.

The entire Sampler team wishes to congratulate the winners of this edition of the NEXTY Consumer Choice Awards!!
