Right in the middle of the greatest health crisis the USA and the world has faced in a century, Australia's PATCH Bamboo Bandages has been announced the winner of New Hope Network’s 2020 NEXTY Consumer Choice Award as Best Natural Living and Personal Care product. The non allergenic, compostable band aid is made by Melbourne based Australian company, Nutricare.
The winners this year were announced and awarded through a livestreamed awards ceremony through New Hope Network, out of Washington DC.
The NEXTY Consumer Choice Awards were created to recognize the pinnacle of excellence in the natural products industry, elevating impactful brands and products that inspire a healthy, sustainable future for people and planet while also having proven consumer approval. Chris McGurrin of New Hope Network said,“THE WINNING PRODUCTS IN EACH OF THE NEXTY CONSUMER CHOICE AWARDS CATEGORIES IS A CLEAR INDICATOR OF WHAT IS RESONATING WITH CONSUMERS TODAY.”“SINCE FIRST EXHIBITING AT EXPO WEST 2019, WE HAVE BEEN BLOWN AWAY BY THE SUPPORT AND INTEREST IN PATCH AND GREEN HEALTHCARE ALTERNATIVES,” SAID NUTRICARE CEO JAMES DUTTON. “ALTHOUGH EXPO WEST WAS UNABLE TO GO AHEAD THIS YEAR – WE ARE SO PROUD TO BE ALIGNED WITH SUCH A COMMITTED INDUSTRY AND OFFER A PRODUCT THAT TRULY MAKES A DIFFERENCE TO CONSUMERS’ LIVES.”
Patch is a really unique and innovative product and since launching less than 12 months ago in North America, the little natural band aid has gone from strength. Now PATCH can be found in USA at CVS, Walgreens, Target, Albertsons-Safeway, Wegmans, Natural Grocers and numerous other grocery, drug, natural living and specialty retailer locations throughout North America. The response to the product has been out of this world. Winning numerous awards like the NEXTY so early, and most importantly now as a reflection of consumer choice - is incredibly beneficial for the brand as it gives instant credibility across channel for retailers and consumers alike.Patch is available widely in Australia at Woolworths, Coles, IGAs, pharmacies and independents nationally and online.
