Take a tour of the glittering awards in our CurraNZ trophy cabinet

on January 31, 2022

As the first to discover that New Zealand blackcurrants enhance exercise performance, our company has come a long way establishing our proprietary CurraNZ extract supplement as an exciting supplement and ingredient in sports nutrition since embarking on the research program a decade ago.

Since September 2020, CurraNZ has won eight awards on three continents, earning international recognition that establishes the product as one of the brightest and best in Europe, America and Asia.

Here’s, we run through the awards that proudly reside in our trophy cabinet:


Best Sports Nutrition Product Award (joint winners with Beet-It Sport)
Best Post-Workout Product 
Best Sports Nutrition Product Award (Highly Commended)
Best Post-Workout Product
CurraNZ was ESSNA Sports Nutrition Product of the Year 2021



The ESSNA is the trade body and voice representing the specialist sports nutrition sector in Europe. CurraNZ enjoyed a clean sweep in its two categories in 2021, winning the Best Post Workout award for the second year running, and taking out the big award of the night.

On awarding CurraNZ the top-joint prize, judges said: “A great, innovative ingredient that is well-researched and applicable for various sports nutrition applications. A super interesting product and a clear effort from the entrant to back up its claims with evidence”.

For the second year running, CurraNZ scooped the Best Post Workout Product of the Year Award.

The judges commented: “CurraNZ is a fantastic product with some great research to back it up. The demand is clearly there from elite sporting organisation across the world to support the recovery from exercise. This can translate well into the active population. In addition to this, the fact that is supports vasodilation may help other health related issues away from sport performance.

"Botanicals and plant derivatives deserve much more recognition than they currently do in the sports nutrition space. CurraNZ is backed by a remarkable amount of high quality studies, and is presented very well on the Internet. It is certified by Informed Sport.

"A unique, targeted and highly effective product that is thoroughly-evidenced and boasts demonstrable, wide-ranging benefits and commercial success.”

We are delighted to receive this recognition that puts us amongst the very best orts nutrition products in Europe, and we thank everyone who has supported us in our journey.

‘The judges were moved by a recent meta analysis study that found Curranz to be highly effective in a crowded space of performance enhancing supplements.

‘Other research suggests blackcurrant as having great potential for the future of sports nutrition supplements across a range of sports modalities.

‘The judges also appreciated that CurraNZ is certified by Informed-Sport.’
