BIOFACH and VIVANESS 2023: Best New Product Awards – trend-based, innovative, and award-worthy

• The winners of the Best New Product Awards at the combined trade fair have been chosen
• BIOFACH: From almond-based cheese alternatives to plant-based flavorings and broths

The winners of the Best New Product Awards at BIOFACH and VIVANESS 2023 are innovative companies recognized by the international organic food and natural and organic cosmetics community. This year, close to 36,000 trade visitors at the combined trade fair had all four days of the event to vote for their favourites among the individual products and series registered at the two Novelty Stands. The votes have now been counted and the winners of the total of 14 awards in 7 categories have been chosen for BIOFACH and VIVANESS. These include innovations that also reflect the trends of this year’s trade fair, such as “Vegan meets Tradition” (BIOFACH) and “Self Empowerment” (VIVANESS).

Some of the trends represented by BIOFACH and VIVANESS 2023 are also reflected in this year’s winners of the Best New Product Awards. In the case of “Vegan meets Tradition”, for example, winners at BIOFACH include an almond-based “cheese alternative” (Mandorino) from Italy. Another of the coveted awards goes to the vegan brand Uhhmami founded by Michelin-star chef Frank Lantz, which transforms traditional dishes into delicious plant-based alternatives. In the company’s own words, Uhhmami “isn’t all about imitating the elements of meat-based flavours but rather reinventing them to create brand-new tastes using fresh, organic and cruelty-free ingredients.” These products developed in Denmark are organic, plant-based flavours and bouillons.
