LOS ANGELES, Calif., Sept. 14, 2017 – Natierra’s Organic Chocolate Covered Freeze-Dried Banana Slices are a finalist for the 2017 NEXTY Awards in the "Best New Sweet Snack" category. The NEXTY Awards are presented at Natural Products Expo East, a leading food trade show in the natural, organic and healthy products industry. The awards are based on three criteria: innovation, inspiration, and integrity. According to the NEXTY Awards' website, the award is a recognition for “companies and products that help shape the future of natural and healthy living.”
"We’re thrilled that our new Organic Chocolate Banana Slices were selected as a finalist in the Best New Sweet Snack category,” said Thierry Ollivier, Founder and CEO of Natierra. “It’s been lots of fun developing this tasty new product as part of our mission to offer innovative and high-quality ‘Superfoods with Soul’ that support our company’s focus on social and environmental causes.”
Ollivier launched BrandStorm Inc, in 2002, and subsequently the Natierra brand, bringing with him over ten years of experience in the organic, natural, gourmet and specialty food industry. He is the pioneer who brought the sacred pink salt from the Himalayas, and what has become a pillar of the superfood category, the Organic goji berries, to the United States specialty food market. His travels to foreign lands gave him the opportunity to source unique superfoods, and the gourmet salts that quickly evolved into beloved household brands known around the world today. Ollivier has not only hand-harvested new, innovative products straight from the source, but he continuously sets new standards with the brand’s commitment to making responsible business decisions. Natierra seeks out the finest ingredients produced in accordance with organic and non-GMO standards, as well as Fair Trade standards when possible.
Through Ollivier’s leadership, Natierra strives to develop and provide opportunity by promoting ethical partnerships in all stages of production, from farmers to employees to consumers. Responsible sourcing promotes empowerment for small-scale farmers and their families through fair wages, good working environments, and better access to proper healthcare and education.
