Orange County, CA (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
VIRGO (vpico.com), an information distribution company focused on the most innovative and complex business-to-business markets that fuel the U.S. and world economies, announced CredibleCravings’ Perinatal Whole Food Bar as one of its 2013 SupplySide Editor’s Choice Awards Finalists.
Five 2013 consumer packaged goods (CPG) products were selected by the SupplySide editorial team for achievements in innovation and market significance in 15 categories: animal nutrition, antioxidant supplements, beverages, digestive health, functional food, hair care, multivitamin, nutricosmetics, omega-3, organic, packaging design, skin care, specialty supplement, sports nutrition and weight management. One winner in each category will be announced at SupplySide West 2013 during the SupplySide Editor’s Choice Awards Reception, set for Nov. 13 at The Venetian in Las Vegas.
“We are honored to have been selected as a functional food finalist by the SupplySide editorial team”, said Stephanie Baker, Founder of CredibleCravings. “Proper perinatal nutrition is truly a game changer in seeking to improve the health of our next generation. Our goal with CredibleCravings was to develop a bar dedicated to the perinatal period through functional ingredients. CredibleCravings bars are comprised of organic whole foods whose nutritional profiles complement the perinatal period and a probiotic (GanedenBC30) to support digestive health and immune function. Ingredients with a purpose and nothing more.”
For more than 15 years, SupplySide has helped dietary supplement, food, beverage, personal care and cosmetic professionals find information to explore, discover, innovate and market their next best-selling product. The inaugural Editor’s Choice Awards is among several recent and forthcoming strategic initiatives to extend its services. The SupplySide West event draws 13,000 attendees and offers more than 1,700 exhibit booths showcasing innovative ingredients and technologies from around the world.
"Last year's inaugural Editor's Choice Awards program was a great success, highlighting the products that are coming to market, driven by the innovative ingredients highlighted at SupplySide," said Heather Granato, vice president, content, in VIRGO's Health & Nutrition Network. "This year's program expanded from 10 to 15 categories, and our editorial team was impressed by the range of products and out-of-the-box thinking that these companies are putting into product development to reach their target market."
