European Specialist Sports Nutrition Awards


About Us

The 2022 ESSNawards took place on Thursday 1st December at Twickenham Stadium in London.

Returning for its fourth year, the European Specialist Sports Nutrition Awards (ESSNawards) honoured the most successful products and campaigns within the sports nutrition world. The event also brought together key stakeholders to network and exchange ideas about how to deal with anticipated market trends and growing sustainability demands.

The very first of its kind, the ESSNawards is a ceremony that recognises excellence in a rapidly expanding and competitive industry.

In our first year, the biggest and best from the sports nutrition industry across Europe gathered to celebrate the sector’s expansion and prosperity. Over a hundred attendees, from fifteen different countries across the world, came together to celebrate.

In 2020, we hosted our first-ever virtual awards. The event celebrated finalists in 11 categories, introduced people via online speed networking and heard from special guest speakers: Professor of Human Physiology at Liverpool John Moores, Graeme Close; Business Development Director Collagen Peptides EMENA at Gelita​ Jean-luc Guichard​ and Informed Sport and Informed Sport Choice’s Business Development Manager​ Terence O’Rorke​. We came back in 2021 with another virtual event and an outstanding pool of speakers including Paralympian Rugby Team GB Martin Norris and Team Jamaica Powerlifter Chloe Whylie. 

Delivered by the Whitehouse Communications in partnership with the European Specialist Sports Nutrition Alliance – a forum for discussion and a vehicle for action for the sports nutrition sector – the ESSNawards gives brands, organisations, and ambassadors in the sports nutrition industry an opportunity to gain recognition for their impressive contributions to the sector.
