The NEXT Forecast team presented 51 Nexty nominations during Natural Products Expo West 2012 in March. The nods were given to recognize those companies we believe will help shape the future of the natural products landscape.

In April and May, industry and consumers voted for their favorite of our Nexty nominees on the website. The poll voting winners were TCHO in Food & Beverage; Eco Nuts in Natural Living; and Youtheory and OJO in Supplements.

The following are the winners of the Nexty Editors’ Choice awards for each of our three categories, as selected by New Hope Natural Media and Sterling-Rice Group. Congratulations to all of the nominees and winners.
