Game Changers: Leading Companies. Powered by Women
Natural Products Canada releases first female-focused report for International Women’s Day
(March 8, 2023 – Burnaby, British Columbia) – NutraEx Food Inc. is thrilled to announce their inclusion in Game Changers: Leading Companies. Powered by Women, an initiative led by Natural Products Canada (NPC). This new list of over 100 companies provides an interesting look at the women leading Canada’s growing natural and bio-based industries. NutraEx Food is a leading supplier of Natural Sweeteners.
“Our patented, embedding technology makes natural sweeteners look and taste like real sugar, without the off-taste often associated with stevia and monk fruit.” Said Lily Zou founder and CEO of NutraEx Food Inc. Using only natural, plant-based ingredients, their process uses lower energy, and generates zero emissions, effluence and waste. They have seen success in selling their sweeteners in North America, securing some of the largest food and beverage manufacturers in the world. In past 24 months, they developed proprietary low-sugar binding syrup, continued R&D on new sweeteners and purchased a new facility, including a purpose built new R&D lab and sensory evaluation studio.
NPC is a national organization that supports bio-based innovation, and this first of its kind Game Changers report showcases the breadth of female leadership in Canadian companies that are creating economic and social impact through their natural and bio-based products. The report features companies from across the country with products designed for consumers seeking new options for their health and wellness such as food, beauty and personal care items, as well as industrial products such as bio resins and biopesticides that help corporations looking to reduce their carbon footprint and meet their sustainability goals.
“Canadians should be proud of these innovative companies that are delivering better, healthier options for people and the planet,” says Shelley King, CEO, Natural Products Canada. “The women leading these companies are truly making a difference, and we are very proud to provide this platform to introduce them to new customers and partners.”
