We’re thrilled to announce that Beleaf’s Plant-Based Shrimp has been shortlisted as a finalist for the illustrious NEXTY Award at Natural Products Expo East 2023! Hold your applause, folks; we’re in the running for *Best New Meat Alternative or Dairy Alternative*.
What Are the NEXTY Awards?
The NEXTY Awards are connected to New Hope Network’s biggest annual natural product expos: Natural Products Expo West and Natural Products Expo East. Twice a year the awards are presented to companies setting the tone for the future of the natural products industry. Every nomination undergoes rigorous scrutiny by New Hope Network’s editorial team and an all-star panel of industry-leading judges: retailers, investors, and sustainability experts. Products are judged on a trifecta of excellence: innovation, inspiration, and integrity.
Why Beleaf’s Plant-Based Shrimp?
Imagine indulging in shrimp's succulent, mouthwatering flavor without a twinge of guilt. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, our Plant-Based Shrimp mimics the taste and texture of its oceanic counterpart to perfection. And the best part? It’s made with just seven simple ingredients. At the heart of our scrumptious alternative is konjac, a high-fiber root vegetable celebrated in traditional medicine for its cholesterol and blood-sugar-lowering benefits. Taste and health, all wrapped up in one delicious package—that’s Beleaf’s signature.
A Leap for Sustainability
Let’s talk about our big blue planet. A recent report by the Good Food Institute reveals that global seafood demand is set to soar by nearly 30% between 2010 and 2030. Meanwhile, our oceans can’t keep up—currently, over 90% of wild fisheries are either overfished or operating at their maximum yield, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. That’s where we step in! Beleaf’s founder, Jason, is on a mission to “empower individuals to make healthier, more sustainable dietary choices.” By opting for our plant-based shrimp, you’re joining us on this exciting journey towards a greener future.

The grand reveal of the NEXTY Award winners will take place in person at Expo East on September 21st, right on the vibrant show floor in Philadelphia. Be there or be square!
