Now in its third year, the ESSNawards recognises and celebrates innovation and success in the sports nutrition industry, highlighting key issues and developments such as new ingredients and sustainability. Previous years have featured special guest speakers, judges and hosts such as Paralympian Charlotte Henshaw, Founder of the Centre for Integrative Sports Nutrition Ian Craig, and chair of ESSNA Dr Adam Carey.
This year’s ceremony is delivered by Whitehouse Communications in partnership with the European Specialist Sports Nutrition Alliance, and will feature 18 awards, including 9 brand new categories such as Best Esports Product and Best Brand Ambassador(s), as well as previous favourites such as Best Sports Nutrition Product and Best Sports Nutrition Ingredient.

Dr Adam Carey, Chair of ESSNA, said:
“After a difficult couple of years for the sports nutrition industry, we are delighted that the ESSNawards will be returning in 2021. In previous ceremonies we have had our eyes opened to the nutritional benefits of bugs and beetroot, and we can’t wait to see what our colleagues in the industry have to show us this year.
“Sports nutrition is developing all the time and all around the world companies are performing incredible feats of science and innovation. Our industry is also expanding, creating products which can support not just elite athletes, but anyone who enjoys sport and activity to support their goals. This is a wonderful thing, making the health and wellness benefits of exercise more accessible to all.”
Chris Whitehouse, Chairman and Managing Director of Whitehouse Communications, said:
“The ESSNawards are a highlight of the sports nutrition industry’s calendar, bringing together the best products, campaigns and ingredients from across the sector. This year’s ceremony will feature more awards than ever before, highlighting the great successes of the industry and bringing together leading experts to celebrate.”
