What makes the WholeFoods Natural Choice Awards so special? The honorees are selected by natural products retailers who choose the products that have made the greatest impact on their business for the year. New this year, we’ve added two additional categories based on areas that have gained popularity in recent years: cognitive health and stress/sleep support. Europharma/Terry Naturally takes home the trophy for Full Supplement Line. Bluebonnet Nutrition, which claimed that spot for the previous three years, is the Runner Up in that category this year, and also wins in the Sports Nutrition category. Among the companies that received an honor for this first time this year is CV Sciences, which won in the stress/sleep category for its Plus CBD Oil. For each category, we tallied the votes and broke the ties using data compiled from our monthly What’s Selling column. Congratulations to all the winners and to the runners-up.
A special thank you goes out to all the retailers who voted through our printed ballot and our new digital voting system. This year, all who voted were entered into a drawing to have a $100 donation to Vitamin Angels made in their name. Congratulations to Spring Street Vitamins in Fairfield, OH, for winning the drawing.
