Informed Sport Announced as Gold Sponsor of ESSNAwards 2022

Informed Sport - ESSNAwards 2022 Sponsor

Informed Sport, the leading testing and certification programme for the global sports nutrition industry, has been announced as the headline sponsor of the European Specialist Sports Nutrition Awards 2022.

Returning for their fourth year, the ESSNawards is the only pan-European competition and ceremony wholly dedicated to the sports and active nutrition industry. Launched in 2019 in response to significant growth in the sector, growing demand from consumers, and expansion of the market from professional athletes only to everyday consumer lifestyle, the ESSNawards bring together brands from around the world - from market leaders to up and coming new players.

Following two years of virtual events during the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2022 ESSNawards will return to London on 01 December and will be hosted by the world-famous Twickenham Stadium, the home English rugby union. As well as the awards ceremony, the evening will include speeches from industry insight leaders and elite athletes.

Informed Sport is a global banned substance certification and testing programme for sports supplements. Athletes and consumers purchasing Informed Sport certified products rest safe in the knowledge that every single batch has been tested for more than 250 substances prohibited in sport.

The rigorous certification process also interrogates the manufacturing of the product, the raw materials and suppliers, and traceability. Informed Sport is one of four brands that make up LGC ASSURE, which is a suite of supply chain assurance services.

Terence O’Rorke, Business Development Manager for the INFORMED Certifications, commented: “We are pleased to be the gold sponsor of the ESSNawards this year. The awards are an annual highlight for the sector and the perfect place to celebrate excellence and innovation – qualities which lie at the heart of the Informed Sport programme.”

Dr Adam Carey, Chair of ESSNA, added: “Informed Sport are a long-standing supporter of the awards, and it’s wonderful to have them on board once more as we return to the incredibly exciting concept of an in-person event. Informed Sport are a key player in the sector, and work to uphold the highest quality of products in order for consumers to make safe choices for their sports nutrition journeys. We look forward to working with Informed Sport to create the best ever ESSNawards ceremony to date!”
