A sparkling protein water that promotes satiety and post-exercise recovery and an organic prebiotic kombucha are among the top five products vying for the 2018 CPG Editor’s Choice Award in functional beverages.

With dynamic speakers, unique programming, expert panel discussions and workshops, and a vibrant exhibit hall, SupplySide West is the go-to event for natural products professionals. The creative collaborations and innovative ingredients that are a hallmark of the event are also the driving force behind the thriving marketplace. Now in its 7th year, the SupplySide CPG Editor's Choice Awards recognizes some of the coolest new launches of consumer packaged goods (CPG) products in nearly 30 categories.

Beverages make up the lion’s share of the functional food and beverage market, and there is no shortage of innovation. Once dominated by sports drinks, this category increasingly is seeing a range of functional beverages including everything from enhanced waters, juices, cold-brew coffee, RTD teas, etc. with an increased emphasis on clean label ingredients.

One winner in each category will be announced on the SupplySide Central Stage at SupplySide West 2018, held at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The functional beverages winners will be revealed Friday, Nov. 9, from 1:30 to 2 p.m. Click the following link to learn more about the networking event or to register for SupplySide West.
