Eat Well Group acquired 100% of Sapientia in the summer of 2021 and maintains its thesis of investing in companies that are commercializing food-tech and R&D products not within years of acquisition but within 12-18 months. Launching its first white-label products within six months, at the end of December 2021, has been a defining moment for Sapientia amid increasingly complex global supply chain challenges.

The prestigious Canadian Grand Prix New Product Awards recognize the best in new product innovation from private label and consumer packaged good products launched into the Canadian market. A Retail Council of Canada consumer-focused annual awards program, the Canadian Grand Prix New Product Awards celebrates advancement and excellence in new food distribution industry products to further encourage manufacturer innovation and to profile continued value to consumers.

"Having our first commercialized product enter finalist status at the 29th annual Canadian Grand Prix New Product Awards is a testament to the hard work and inventiveness of our team, and the market’s love for our “Protein Twists," commented Dr. Gino Bortone, Sapientia’s Founder & CEO. "We are incredibly proud of what we have accomplished in such a short period and can't wait to expand our white-label product lines, and equally as important, launch Sapientia’s own branded products, which we look forward to sharing more details on in the near term."
