NutraIngredients-Asia​ Editor-in-Chief Gary Scattergood said: "The awards were designed to recognise and celebrate the industry's biggest commercial successes, best product developments, and brightest research.

"It is a celebration of all that is great in our industry across Asia-Pacific and we had the honour of presenting nine awards to very deserving winners.

"As you might imagine, the sheer number of entries — and the high standards from all that entered — made the judging process incredibly difficult. That's why I'd like to thank our expert panel of judges, who spent many hours assessing and evaluating all of the entries in great detail.

"I'd also like to thank our sponsors, DuPont and Lallemand, for their fantastic backing of the event.

"Congratulations to the all of the companies shortlisted and, of course, to our well-deserving winners."
