Prof Christiani Jeyakumar Henry

NutraIngredients-Asia Editor-in-Chief Gary Scattergood said: “Congratulations to all our of award winners. Each and every category featured a shortlist of excellent products, ingredients or innovations so taking home the top prize is some achievement. 

“As you might imagine, the sheer number of entries – and the high standards from all that entered – made the judging process incredibly difficult. We had more than 100 entries and reducing these to a shortlist, and then picking a winner, is a very tough task. 

“That’s why I’d like to thank our independent and expert panel of judges, which spent many hours assessing and evaluating all the entries in great detail.

“I’d also like to thank our sponsors DuPont, Gencor / Pharmako Biotechnologies, Biotropics Malaysia, Pharmactive Biotech Products and Peptan  for their fantastic backing of the event and commitment to rewarding and acknowledging industry excellence.

“These awards have shown once again just how innovative and vibrant the region’s nutrition industry truly is. Congratulations again to the all the companies shortlisted and, of course, to our well-deserved winners.”
