The European Specialist Sports Nutrition Alliance (ESSNA) is delighted to announce the return of the 2022 Awards ceremony, the ESSNawards, to be held in London on Thursday, 1st December.  

Now in its fourth year, the ESSNawards recognises and celebrates innovation and success in the sports and active nutrition industry, highlighting key issues and developments such as new ingredients, innovative products and sustainability. Previous years have featured special guest speakers, such as powerlifting champion, Chloe Whylie, Paralympian star, and high-calibre judges and hosts, including the 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 10 awards, including brand new categories such as Most Sustainable Company, as well as previous fan favourites such as Best Sports Nutrition Product, Best Sports Nutrition Ingredient, and Best “Free-From” Product.

Dr Adam Carey, Chair of ESSNA, said: 

“After a difficult few years for the sports and active nutrition industry, we are delighted that the ESSNawards will be returning to an in-person event in 2022. In previous ceremonies, we have had our eyes opened to the nutritional benefits of bugs, blackcurrant, and beetroot, and we can’t wait to see what our friends and colleagues in the industry have to showcase this year. 

“Sports and active 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, added: 

“The ESSNawards are a highlight of the sports and active nutrition industry’s calendar, bringing together the best products, campaigns and ingredients from across the sector. This year in particular, we are excited to come back in person with an event that promises to be unmissable for the industry. The ceremony will feature more of the industry’s highly anticipated awards, highlighting the great successes of the sector and bringing together leading experts and everyday consumers to celebrate.”
