Entries open for inaugural ESSNA sports nutrition awards


The European Specialist Sports Nutrition Alliance (ESSNA) has today announced that entries are open for its first awards, designed to celebrate and honour the outstanding brands, organizations and ambassadors active in the sports nutrition sector.

The ESSNawards are organized by The Whitehouse Consultancy in partnership with ESSNA, and consist of ten categories including Best Sports Nutrition Product, Gamechanger, Most Sustainable Product and Most Innovative Product.

“Having worked with the sports nutrition industry for the last 16 years and having both witnessed first-hand and been part of its unparalleled growth, we are extremely excited to be delivering the inaugural ESSNawards,” says Chris Whitehouse, chairman and MD of The Whitehouse Consultancy, commenting on the awards.

“This is an industry that has worked incredibly hard to get to where it is today and deserves to be given a chance to showcase its successes. We look forward to learning more about the remarkable companies who have really exemplified the industrious, innovative and entrepreneurial nature of the sports nutrition sector in Europe.”

Submissions will be shortlisted by an independent panel of judges from across the industry. The winners will be revealed at an awards ceremony on 6 December 2019 at the Kia Oval in London. Hosted by ESSNA chair Adam Carey, the event will also bring together key stakeholders to network and exchange ideas about recent developments and challenges affecting the industry.

Carey adds: “The sports nutrition industry has grown significantly in recent years and today the typical consumer is significantly more conscious of responsible consumption of sports nutrition products and the health benefits of physical activity and improved diets. Sports nutrition is no longer limited to athletes and bodybuilders and has become mainstream and a lifestyle choice for the average individual.

“For an industry that has seen so much growth, it makes perfect sense that an awards ceremony should be in place to honour its best and finest players. We are extremely excited to be working alongside The Whitehouse Consultancy to deliver this all-important framework for recognising the monumental achievements of our industry, and we very much look forward to … celebrate the excellence, innovation and originality of sports nutrition businesses.
