BrandSpark International announces its 20th annual 2023 Best New Product Awards winners, honouring the Best New Food, Beverage, Beauty, Health, Personal Care, and Household Care products, based on a nationwide survey of Canadian consumers.




BrandSpark International has just announced the winners of the 20th annual 2023 Best New Product Awards (“BNPA”), Canada’s most credible new product awards program. More than 12,600 Canadians participated in the national survey to pick the 90 winning products for the latest Food & Beverage, Beauty, Health, Personal Care, and Household Care products. The winners are 100% consumer-voted and were determined based on real shoppers who bought these winning products.

The 2023 Best New Product Awards winners are listed below.  For more information on the program and winners, visit:

“We are excited to celebrate the 20th year of the Best New Product Awards,” said Robert Levy, President of BrandSpark International and Founder of the Best New Product Awards. “With so many new products launched each year, it is hard for consumers to know what to buy and challenging for brands to break through the clutter. The Best New Product Awards help consumers know what products are worth their hard-earned dollars. We see consumer attitudes shifting and the awards aim to identify products with meaningful innovation that meets evolving consumer needs and aspirations,” says Levy.

“The BNPA seal, with its signature check mark, drives strong ROI for the winners by helping products stand out from the competition and by alerting Canadians that products have been validated by other consumers. Every year we see brands boost sales by leveraging their win across multiple channels.” says Kim Diamond, Vice President of the Best New Product Awards. Winning Best New Product Awards winners will be featured in a high-impact PR and media campaign on Global TV Network,, TikTok, Chatelaine, The Kit, on the Flipp flyer app, and in an online shoppable gallery on – an engaged nationwide community of shoppers who try and review products.

“Despite inflation pressures, Canadian shoppers continue to seek out the best new products. 78% agree they like trying new products and 53% report they actively look for new products when shopping, up from 48% since last summer,” says Philip Scrutton, VP of Shopper Insights at BrandSpark International.

Some key takeaways from this year’s BrandSpark Canadian Shopper Study & the Best New Product Awards

Convenient Ways to Eat Healthier:
46% agree there are not enough convenient healthy food options as health plus convenience continues to be a winning combination

3 in 5 Canadians regularly read the nutrition labels on the food products they are considering, yet 47% agree that when time is tight, convenience is more important than eating healthy.

Several of this year’s winners are helping consumers by combining convenience with a healthier choice: Burnbrae EGG Bites! 5 Cheese, Blender Bites Daily Defen-C 1 Step Smoothie, and Rio Mare Salmon Fillet in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and in Brine

Little Appetite to Make Sacrifices on Taste:
Only 1 in 5 Canadians regularly sacrifice taste for health benefits.

1 in 2 Canadians say they usually consider the health benefits of the foods they choose, few are willing to make sacrifices on taste. Rather, 7 in 10 agree that taste is their primary consideration, ahead even of price and health, and 63% agree that the best indulgent foods are worth it.

Winners that delivered superior taste include Werther’s Original Milk Chocolate Covered Caramels, Häagen-Dazs Exträaz Layers, and Nutella® B-Ready.

Investing in Long-Term Health:

6 in 10 Canadians believe they have a great deal of control over their long-term health through their daily decisions.

Yet this decreased 8 percentage points since 2021. Post-pandemic consumers are going beyond healthy eating and seeking over-the-counter products to enhance their physical and mental health and prepare them for the unexpected. 2 in 3 believe that research is leading to ever better health products, and 55% don’t mind spending significantly more to get the health products they are most confident will work.

Some of this year’s winning products that are helping Canadians feel healthier include Jamieson Vitamin D3 2500 IU Gummies – Juicy Peach and Webber Naturals Adult 50+ Probiotic.

‘Masstige’ continues to evolve and resonate
3 in 5 believe the best mass beauty brands provide products just as effective as prestige beauty.

61% agree that brands are constantly creating better beauty & personal care products through research & development. They want these products to be immediately effective and healthy for skin and hair over prolonged use.

Beauty innovations confirmed by this year’s program to deliver on their promise include Burt’s Bees Gloss and Glow Glossy Balm, Revlon ColorStay Skin Awaken™ 5-in-1 Concealer and Neutrogena Stubborn Acne AM Treatment.

Household Care Convenience:
Canadians want household products that are proven effective, while also being better for the environment.

Overall, 3 in 5 believe that research & development is continually leading to better household care products and 45% spend more for the household care products that have been proven effective to them.

Winning new household products that were worth buying again include Lysol Laundry Disinfectant and Family Guard Disinfectant Cleaner.

1 in 2 Canadian shoppers say they want to be leaders in reducing their environmental impact; 70% of these shoppers claim willingness to pay a premium to do so.

One in 2 Canadians say they actively look for products that are more environmentally-friendly, yet only 1 in 3 are willing to trade off on product performance for environmental benefits. Fortunately, they often don’t have to: sustainable innovation is represented in 3 in 10 of the 2023 Best New Product Award winners.

“Canadians believe it is manufacturers’ responsibility to make products more sustainable, however they value it when manufacturers do,” says Scrutton. “Consumers are most likely to recognize progress to reduce packaging waste, but ingredient changes that increase both sustainability and performance can be particularly impactful,” he adds.

This year, BrandSpark and the Best New Product Awards responded to the increasing importance of sustainability to consumers and brands by measuring consumer reaction to product innovations that improved sustainability.  Only a small share of new consumer products are defined by a major achievement on sustainability, but many brands are making progressive improvements, with changes in either packaging or ingredients.

“The need for sustainable innovation is clear and consumers are showing a desire to help drive positive change, however it is up to the brands and manufacturers to continue to innovate with better-for-the-environment alternatives,” says Levy.

For the first time, the Best New Product Awards program is recognizing products (both nominees & winners) that feature meaningful sustainable innovation – see list below. These are products that consumers rate highly as meaningful sustainable innovation and which they believe to be more sustainable than typical options in the category. Sustainable innovations seen in these products include zero-plastic, biodegradable or 100% recyclable packaging, reusable containers, concentrated formulas, plant-based alternatives, and responsibly-sourced or natural ingredients.

TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tilray Brands, Inc. (“Tilray” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: TLRY; TSX: TLRY), a leading global cannabis and consumer packaged goods company, today announced the launch of its expanded product lineup by its quintessentially Canadian cannabis lifestyle brand, CANACA. Introducing its new ‘Let ‘Er Rip’ Campaign, a curated collection of products crafted to elevate intensity while offering flavourful and aromatic consumption experiences. As part of the new campaign, CANACA highlights two product lines, unveiling exciting new offerings just in time for fall, including additional whole flower and Crumble Cones™ pre-rolls.

“We are excited to launch this campaign, which demonstrates CANACA’s redefined brand narrative, emphasizing the innovative enhancements we’ve incorporated into our processes, thereby elevating our product quality,” said Michelle Morin, Senior Brand Manager at Tilray Brands. “Innovation is at the core of the brand’s evolution; it drives us to craft cannabis products that not only meet but exceed consumer expectations.”

CANACA delivers this experience by placing a renewed emphasis on meticulous production. The refined growing and processing techniques, including hang drying, hand trimming, and a 14-day curing period, are distinctly reflected in the quality of our whole flower products. Moreover, our innovative technologies, such as the proprietary process for creating the full spectrum extract, deliver extra smooth smoke in our Crumble Cones.

In select stores, consumers will have the opportunity to explore new educational resources, delving into how each format is offered by CANACA. Immersing themselves in the vibrant visual assets encapsulating the feeling delivered by CANACA products: Let ‘Er Rip!

CANACA’s high-quality whole flower includes:

  • Afghaniskunk: For those that love a good skunk strain that’s sour yet sweet, this strain is a cross between Afghan #1 and Skunk, only available in 7g in Ontario and 28g flower in Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan.
  • Ghost Gelato: Nothing like Gelato #9 and Ghost Train Haze to bring you the ultimate sour, fruity and citrus notes to enjoy, available in 7g and 28g flower, along with 14 x 0.35g pre-roll multi-packs.
  • Headbanger: One of CANACA’s latest new Fall releases, headbanger brings a trifecta of goodness, featuring fruit, earth, and gas aromas, thanks to its blend of Biker Kush and Sour Diesel. Available in 7g in Ontario and 28g flower in Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan.
  • Alien Guy: A CANACA classic – a blend of Jean Guy and Alien Dawg bringing you citrus, lemon and pine aromas, embracing classically Canadian notes, available 7g and 28g flower, and 14 x 0.35g pre-roll multi-packs.

With boosted potency and smoothness, CANACA also introduces two additional Crumble Cones offerings:

  • Grandpa’s Stash: Grandpa’s Stash Crumble Cones combine ground Grandpa’s Stash sativa flower with butane hash oil (BHO) crumble to create infused pre-rolls that embrace sweet, spicy and dank aromas from the dominant caryophyllene, humulene and limonene terpenes from this Super Skunk x OG Kush x Afghan Kush cross with an amped-up BHO infusion. Grab Grandpa’s Stash Crumble Cones in a 3 x 0.5g pack.
  • Ghost Gelato: Ghost Gelato Crumbles Cones combines Ghost Gelato indica flower with butane hash oil (BHO) crumble to create infused pre-rolls, achieving higher THC. Experience the power of these pre-rolls with citrus, sour, and earthy aromas from the dominant limonene, caryophyllene, and myrcene terpenes, derived from a cross of Ghost Train Haze x Gelato #9 and amped-up BHO infusion. Grab Ghost Gelato Crumble Cones in a 1 x 1g pack.

CANACA’s ‘Let Er’ Rip’ campaign signifies a new chapter, showcasing products meticulously crafted for enhanced intensity and focusing on potency and aroma. This reinforces our commitment to offering ‘true north strong’ products, introducing additional potent options for consumers.

Hemp, Inc. Reports: Growing Legalization of Industrial Hemp Driving Global Demand for Hemp



LAS VEGAS, NV, Sept. 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire – Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) is perfectly positioned at the forefront of the industrial hemp industry as demand increases and opportunities abound. The recent release of a comprehensive research report, Global Industrial Hemp Market (2023-2031), says the global industrial hemp market is forecast to grow to $134.6 billion by 2030. The report covers trends, investments, tech advancements, and some of the major players in the industry.  Of particular interest in this report are the factors that are influencing the market because these are the things creating exponential growth opportunities for industry businesses. For example, did you know hemp seeds are known as a “complete” protein source? By complete, we mean the nine essential amino acids your body typically needs on a daily basis.

These amino acids are essential because they can only be derived from your diet. Let’s delve a little deeper into what those essential amino acids are. They are histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine.  Quite a mouthful but quite essential. In fact, in the plant world, there are only five other plants considered a complete protein source (amaranth, buckwheat, chia seeds, quinoa, and soy).  More and more people are becoming aware of such benefits and there’s a growing consumer demand for a nutrition-rich diet.

As one of the most rapidly growing plants on the planet, hemp is used to make a variety of products. It can be shifted into rope, paper, textiles, clothing, disposable polymers, paint, insulation, food, and animal feed. (Source)  Hemp, Inc. discovered its grounded kenaf hemp blend is the perfect substrate to grow healthy and/or medicinal mushrooms and has the capability to make and/or provide the raw materials to produce hemp-based products such as hempcrete, horse bedding, hemp bio-plastics, and more. With the “growing legalization of industrial hemp farming around the world, the demand for industrial hemp has been exponential. There’s been a rapid expansion of various R&D activities that will benefit the market and the beneficial properties of hemp seed oil and hemp seeds are also significantly influencing the industrial hemp market.” (Source)

With over 14 years of experience in hemp cultivation and processing, Hemp, Inc. plays a pivotal role in the industrial hemp industry. The company’s product line includes CBD, CBDA, CBG, CBGA, and CBN, all derived from hemp and known for their therapeutic properties. Hemp, Inc. distinguishes itself by using pharmaceutical-grade beta-cyclodextrin in combination with cannabinoids for rapid absorption and efficacy. Notably, their CBD/CBG coffee enhancer is highly potent, rapidly absorbed, and competitively priced, offering consumers a premium coffee experience.

Needless to say, Hemp, Inc. continues to have a strong foothold in the market with an invaluable roster of manufacturers and vendors across the country and abroad to see meteoric growth curves on a domestic and international scale and its e-portal ( to its CBD products is primed and poised to capture a large share of the marketplace on a global scale.
The Company’s superb lineup of CBD/CBG/CBN products includes a CBD-CBG Topical Pain Relief Roll-on (THC-free with 1,460mg of CBD and 630mg of CBG totaling 2,090mg of cannabinoids in 5ml), CBD/CBG Natural Coffee Enhancers, CBD/CBG Tinctures, and, CBDa/CBGa/CBD/CBG/CBN Capsules.

Hemp has and will continue to play a vital role in maintaining good health and well-being.  Read on for how Hemp, Inc.’s current product line is a step above the rest.

About Hemp, Inc.’s Current Product Line

The product line contains CBD, CBDA, CBG, CBGA, and CBN (non-psychoactive compounds found in cannabis plants). These are active ingredients in cannabis that are derived from the hemp plant, which is widely known for pain relief, relaxation, and anxiety relief. A recipe is only as good as its ingredients and how those ingredients are blended. Hemp, Inc. is the only company in America that uses pharmaceutical-grade beta-cyclodextrin (a carbohydrate used during the manufacturing process) which is combined with all the cannabinoids for rapid absorption and uptake.  The Company’s CBD, CBDA, CBG, CBGA, and CBN product lines are highly potent therapeutic doses that have received rave reviews. 

Hemp, Inc. has also pushed the boundaries with its CBD/CBG coffee enhancer. This powerhouse product is super potent, absorbs rapidly in coffee, and is 4 times more potent (at a fraction of the price) than other hemp-derived coffee enhancers currently on the market. Its high-quality ingredient combination offers 30 servings per bottle and contains a total of 10,000mg of cannabinoids (7,500mg CBD and 2,500mg CBG) in an MCT oil base. Per serving, that’s 250mg CBD and 83mg CBG remarkably mixed in a wonderfully rich cup of coffee.  

The CBD/CBG coffee enhancer comes in plain (natural) and vanilla flavors.  The plain (natural) coffee enhancer is available now and the vanilla flavor will be available by the end of this month.  A single container (7-day supply) retails for $27.95 and a bottle (30-day supply) retails for $99.95.  Wholesale bulk orders are single-use packages, available through select restaurants.

Astrotech Reports Fiscal Year 2023 Financial Results



AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Astrotech Corporation (Nasdaq: ASTC) (the “Company” or “Astrotech”) reported its financial results for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023.

Financial Highlights & Fiscal Year Developments 

  • Astrotech’s consolidated balance sheet remains strong with $42.1 million in cash and cash equivalents and liquid investments which is anticipated to support our research and development, organic growth, and potential acquisition targets. 
  • Gross margin increased to 41% for the year compared to 22% in the prior period, due to a higher proportion of recurring revenue.
  • We appointed Bob McFarland to the Board of Directors to bring his domestic and international executive management and sales experience, as well as his experience working with and for the federal government.
  • We appointed Thomas B. Pickens III to the role of Chief Technology Officer. He has consistently demonstrated his proficiency in identifying new applications that can “profit” from our Astrotech Mass Spectrometer Technology™ (the “AMS Technology”) and is key in the design of innovative sample collection, software user interface, and quantitation techniques. Mr. Pickens is also integral in creating value by identifying and integrating OEM suppliers of certain sample collection and chromatography technologies.
  • Our 1st Detect subsidiary’s commercial sales of the ECAC-certified TRACER 1000™ explosive trace detector (ETD), consumables and recurring maintenance services has continued leading to $750 thousand in total revenue during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023. Additionally, 1st Detect has been successful in securing an order for 17 Tracer 1000 units to a Romanian based security and telecommunications company with the majority of these units being delivered in early fiscal year 2024.
  • Our AgLAB subsidiary released results from the ongoing field trials of the AgLAB Maximum Value Process™ solution (AgLAB MVP). AgLAB which uses the Company’s proprietary AgLAB 1000-D2™ mass spectrometer has been proven to improve distillation oil yields and bottom-line profits for hemp and cannabis producers. During our field trials, we were able to improve ending-weight yields by an average of 30%.
  • Our BreathTech subsidiary continues to collect breath samples from both COVID-19 positive and negative patients as part of the ongoing development of the library for the BreathTest-1000™ lung disease screening instrument. The BreathTest-1000 is a breath analysis tool designed to screen for volatile organic compound metabolites found in a person’s breath that could indicate they may have a bacterial or viral infection. Testing is being done following FDA required regulations.
  • On December 5, 2022, the Company effected a reverse stock split primarily intended to bring the Company into compliance with the minimum bid price requirements for maintaining its listing on The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC. On December 19, 2022, the Company received written notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of Nasdaq stating that the Company had regained compliance with the minimum bid price requirement of $1.00 per share for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market. Numbers presented in the financial statements presented have been adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split.

“The Company’s gross profit grew in fiscal year 2023 as recurring revenue related to our TRACER 1000 was a larger proportion of our sales. After having lost traction with passenger airport sales during the pandemic, the Company is very excited about our most recent 17-unit order to Romania. These sales and our recurring revenue should result in an increase in our topline revenue during the next fiscal year,” stated Thomas B. Pickens, III, Astrotech’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer.

During fiscal year 2023 we continued to develop and enhance our AMS Technology. This not only benefits our existing platforms but also provides additional versatility for the future.

“In addition, our AgLAB 1000-D2 field trials with potential customers have proven that the AgLAB MVP solution is an effective tool to improve potency and yields for any distiller of hemp or cannabis. We believe this technology has the ability to directly increase processors’ bottom line. We are actively demonstrating the AgLAB MVP solution to several potential customers and are hopeful to secure our first deployments of the AgLAB 1000-D2” stated Thomas B. Pickens, III.
