Natural & Organic Products Europe the region's biggest trade show for natural products, will showcase everything from natural healthcare products, organic foods, through to eco-friendly personal care and eco-household products when it returns to the London ExCeL exhibition and convention center, on 22-23 April 2018.
Exhibiting companies from 42 countries will be showcasing their latest food and drink innovations to thousands of trade buyers and retailers and expect to welcome over 10,500 attendees – all looking to discover the best choice of natural and certified organic food and drink from around the world from 700-plus exhibitors," organizer Diversified Communications said.
"Natural & Organic Products Europe is on track to feature more certified organic products than ever this year. Nearly half of the show’s 700+ exhibitors will be promoting their organic credentials, including well over 100 Soil Association symbol holders."
The Organic Hub in the Natural Food Show, hosted by the Soil Association and the Organic Trade Board, is a great place to discover some of the UK’s biggest and newest organic food and drink brands, the organisers said. The Organic Food Hub part of the show is 35 percent bigger for 2018, with 40 exhibitors.
The Soil Association will also host several exclusive presentations at the show, including a comprehensive trade overview of their latest UK Organic Market Report — which saw total sales of organic products rise by 6 percent to a record GBP2.2 billion in 2017.
Visitors looking for their next wave of organic beauty best-sellers should check out the Soil Association Organic Beauty pavilion (in the Natural Beauty & Spa show). The show also features Natural Health & Natural Living areas, including brands promoting their latest organic certified ranges.
As in previous years, there’s a big international presence at the show. This year’s pavilions include Dio Greece (with 16 organic certified producers); Organic Peru; Demeter Biodynamic; Demeter Italy; Austria; Armenia; Ecuador; Thailand; Spain (Galicia region); Sri Lanka (speciality teas); Mezzogiorno – Southern Italian Food; Epirus, and South Aegean – winner of the ‘European Region of Gastronomy 2019’ Award – promoting Greek delicacies from across its 50+ inhabited islands.
Over 60 other nations are participating at an individual level – bringing the sights and sounds (not to mention the aromas and flavours) of the world to London – including Australia, China, Czech Republic, Germany, India, Ireland, Japan, Poland, and Sweden.
“Newness is crucial to our business, and nowhere in the UK is there more innovation that is relevant to my business than this show,” says Al Overton, head of buying at Planet Organic.
