The European Specialist Sports Nutrition awards (ESSNawards) is designed to honour the most successful products and campaigns within the sports nutrition world. The very first of its kind, our goal is to put on a ceremony that recognises excellence in a rapidly expanding and competitive industry.
The show is judged independently by an esteemed panel of professionals from diverse and well-informed backgrounds. The awards categories encompass many different elements of the sports nutrition industry and the challenges faced by the sector today, including sustainability, innovation and consumer awareness.
The 2019 ceremony was held at the Kia Oval in London on the 6th December 2019. Details on ESSNawards 2020 will be available shortly.

Who we are?
The European Specialist Sports Nutrition Alliance (ESSNA) is the voice of sports nutrition in Europe. Our membership includes big international sport nutrition brands; smaller specialist companies; ingredients’ suppliers; and national associations.
ESSNA was founded in 2003 with the intention of creating a forum for discussion and vehicle for actions on the concerns of the specialist sports nutrition sector in order to secure appropriate and proportionate European legislation on sports nutrition products.
Today, ESSNA is in close dialogue with a wide variety of stakeholders to do this. We work with officials from the European Commission and the European Food Standards Agency, Member States’ Governments, Parliamentarians from the European Parliament and Member State legislatures and other trade bodies and sporting organisations, so that we are best able to represent the views of the specialist sector in a wide range of discussions.
ESSNA also takes the argument for sports nutrition and the reputable brands involved in the industry to TV and radio, the mainstream press and the specialist media, as well as to anti-doping organisations. We work to disassociate responsible brands from those tarnishing the reputation of the sector and so improve perceptions of the industry. All ESSNA Members sign up to the ESSNA Code of Conduct that insists that they abide by all relevant rules and regulations.
