Product of the Year: Omega-3

Consumer demand for, and knowledge of, omega-3s has risen spectacularly in recent years – leading to a raft of innovation and new product launches or omega-3 containing products. This award looks to reward the brightest and best branded or own-label supplements, foods and beverages containing omega-3 as a core ingredient.

    Our judging panel will base their decision on the following criteria:

    • Brand recognition and the commercial success of your product, including evidence of strong retail and consumer interest or listings of your product.
    • Consumer demand and interest in your format, delivery system, and/or matrix – including how innovative any delivery system is.
    • Whether your product meets a consumer demand, and how relevant the botanical/TCM ingredient is in meeting this demand
    • Packaging ease of use and design, including appeal and ease of use, novelty
    • Evidence that the product works for its specified use, where possible this will be product specific research, however research citing the main active ingredients solely will also be considered.
    • Evidence of that your product and its delivery system(s) has no, or beneficial, impact on bioavailability (especially if citing single ingredient data).
    • What gives your product the ‘X factor’ – something that makes it stand out from the crowd and edge out the competition (including evidence to back up claims)
