Botanical Product of the Year

Botanicals and TCM ingredients are seeing a resurgence in interest from the industry and consumers following new science and growing popular interest in ‘traditional’ and natural health solutions. This award celebrates the best branded or own-label supplements, functional foods and beverages containing botanical and TCM ingredients.

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)
