Meet This Year’s Naturally Boulder Award Winners




Naturally Boulder recognized six companies, leaders and organizations last week with its annual awards.


The organization, which has been around since 2005, supports businesses in Colorado’s more than $2 billion natural and organic products industry. The organization will host its Pitch Slam on Feb. 23, 2023.


“From brand new companies that are finishing their first round of funding to brands with 40+ years under their belt, the breadth of the natural products companies who call Colorado home is staggering—and encouraging,” says Bill Capsalis, Naturally Boulder’s executive director. “Our goal is to hold an event that really highlights the hard work of these people and their companies.”


Below, meet some of the winners of Naturally Boulder’s prestigious awards.
