Innovative and honored by the international organic food and natural cosmetics community - these are the winners of the Best New Product Awards at BIOFACH and VIVANESS 2023. This time, the nearly 36,000 trade visitors to the trade fair duo were able to vote on their favorites for the entire duration of the event, and thus for four days. The basis: the individual products and series registered for the two innovation stands. Now the votes have been counted and the total of 14 awards in 7 categories each of BIOFACH and VIVANESS have been determined. The winners include innovations that also reflect this year's trade fair trends. For example, "Vegan meets Tradition" (BIOFACH) and "Self Empowerment" (VIVANESS).
Some of the trade show trends of BIOFACH and VIVANESS 2023 are now also reflected in this year's winners of the Best New Product Awards. For example, "Vegan meets Tradition": among the winners at BIOFACH is an almond-based "cheese alternative" (Mandorino) from Italy. Uhhmami, a vegan brand that transforms classic dishes into delicious, plant-based alternatives, wins one of the coveted prizes. Founded by Michelin chef Frank Lantz, Uhhmami is, in the company's own words, "not just about imitating the elements of meat-based flavors, but reinventing them to create brand new flavors with fresh, organic and animal-free ingredients." The products, developed in Denmark, are organic, plant-based flavors and broths, or "flavor for flavor."
The winners of this year's Best New Product Awards at VIVANESS, for example, fit the trends of "Natural Skinification" (holistic hair cosmetics) and "Self Empowerment." The winners include "MAGIC MASK - Super Hair Food" from the Italian company N&B, a corresponding hair care product, and the silky-smooth intimate gel, the hot & cold female orgasm gel and the vulva care from Goliate from France, products that stand for the "Self Empowerment" trend.
