We can’t wait to see you at SupplySide West, coming up in Las Vegas from November 8-9. Every year, we join more than 1,300 exhibitors and a total of 16,000 vendors and buyers covering the full spectrum of the natural products market, from the dietary supplement to the function food and beverage, personal care and sports nutrition industries. SupplySide West focuses on the fusion of science and strategy to support the natural products industry as it continues a rapid trend of upward growth.
Attending the Show for the 14th consecutive year, NP Nutra® will showcase over 90 premium ingredients from our most popular categories. In addition to the best-selling Signature Ingredients, we will also feature products from Nutra Flow, Nutra Organics, Nutra Pet, Superfruits, Supergreens and the Plant Protein categories.
Illustrating the rapid rise in interest of natural products, the plant-based market is on track to reach $5.2 billion by 2020, having increased by a staggering 20% in 2017 compared to a 2% growth for all foods.1 “Plant-based” is now a buzzword that transcends formerly narrow market segments, reaching a growing consortium of consumers who are concerned about their health, their weight, their mental and physical stamina, and the environment. Among all the rising stars of the natural products industry, one category stands out - introduction of plant-based protein products grew twice as fast as products with animal protein in 2014. With US sales of over $553 million in 2012, plant-based proteins are leading the pack as a fast, effective and increasingly delicious way for consumers to incorporate peak nutrition into their diet.2
At NP Nutra®, we’ve long believed that high quality, responsibly sourced, organic plant-based protein powders are the backbone of our product line. That’s why we’ve put so much time and energy into making sure we remain at the forefront of the industry, discovering new sources of plant proteins and formulating our own unique signature blends. This year, we’re proud to share with you a growing line of delicious and nutritious plant-based protein powders, which include:
- Amaranth Powder (organic)
- Brown Rice Protein Powder 80% (organic)
- Chia Protein Powder (organic, soluble)
- Hemp Protein Flour (organic) NEW
