GELITA has joined the European Specialist Sports Nutrition Awards 2020 as an official sponsor. Now in its second year, the ESSNawards attracts sports nutrition brands, companies and individuals from across Europe to celebrate the sector’s expansion and prosperity.

GELITA, a world leading supplier of collagen proteins for the food, health, nutrition and pharmaceutical industries, provides new ideas and solutions to support the development, production and marketing of innovative products in the sports nutrition industry.

Last year, over a hundred attendees, from fifteen different countries across the world, came together at the ESSNawards ceremony at the Kia Oval in London to celebrate 12 winners, beating over 40 other sports nutrition brands who entered the awards. This year, the ceremony will take place on Thursday 10th December 2020 in an exciting new venue: a global epicentre of prestigious sporting events, the Stade de France in Paris.

Adam Carey, Chair of ESSNA, said: “We are delighted to announce that GELITA is a silver sponsor of the ESSNawards.  A long-time member of ESSNA, GELITA’s emphasis on consumer protection and food safetyaligns entirely with our ethos and mission. We look forward to working with them more closely in the coming months, during the run up to the ESSNawards 2020.

Oliver Wolf, Head of Marketing at GELITA, said: “Sports Nutrition is one of the major pillars within GELITAs business in 2020. Our Bioactive Collagen Peptides® contribute meaningful to the health and performance of athletes and active people throughout the world. Thus it is almost a natural consequence for us to engage in this award supporting ESSNA and the European Sports Nutrition Industry.”

Delivered by the ESSNA, a forum for discussion and a vehicle for action for the sports nutrition sector, in collaboration with leading political communications agency The Whitehouse Consultancy, the ESSNawards gives brands, organisations and ambassadors in the sports nutrition industry an opportunity to gain recognition for their impressive contributions to the sector.

This year, four new categories have been added, including best protein bar, best energy drink and sports nutrition in lockdown, as well as a new cohort of judges, competitions, and sponsors.  A full list of categories can be found here and entry information can be found here.

Sponsoring the ESSNawards provides businesses with the opportunity to enhance its profile, communicate to its target audience and interact with sports nutrition professionals including nutritionists, journalists, practitioners, and sportspeople.
