NATEXPO, the largest and only international trade event for organic and sustainable products, returns to Paris on 20-22 October 2019 at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre, with over 1,000 exhibitors from around 20 countries.
In response to this dynamic market for organic products in France NATEXPO has become the birthplace of everything organic in all sectors: food, cosmetics and hygiene, dietary and food supplements, ingredients and raw materials, household and personal products and services, or services and equipment for the retail," the show organizers said.
Faced with increasingly "eco-conscious" and committed consumers, organic professionals are continually reinventing themselves to offer products, services, or innovative solutions that meet the new expectations of convenience, transparency, and sustainability.
Natexpo used to be a bi-annual event catering mainly to the French market. Last year it became an annual international exhibition alternating between Paris and Lyon. The organizers have registered over 500 new entrants, motivated to present their latest products at the show. Buyers will seek solutions for better packaging and product presentation, that avoid excessive waste and the use of too much plastic. The show also offers nutritious superfoods, take-out food, and high-quality cosmetics developed under social and environmental responsibility, and better supplements and household goods.
"2018 was a record year for the organic market," said F. Guhl, director of Agence Bio. "Organic sales reached €9.7 million (+15.4 percent), with all product categories up thanks to the efforts deployed by distribution and manufacturers to put together category streams and secure supplies. Long-standing organic retailers are revisiting their concepts. The green wave is becoming a tidal wave; organic is reinventing itself powerfully and with fun. The eco-aware vision is no longer sufficient: it is time for action, through creative initiatives." The show in 2019 also offers ten select areas dedicated to training and specific content. Attendees will discover the latest organic trends at 100 conferences, workshops, and demonstrations.
NATEXPO is the show of La Fédération NATEXBIO, which represents the Bio sector and brings together three professional associations: Synadiet, Synabio and Synadis Bio. It is organized by Spas Organisation, the largest French organizer of trade shows and consumer events dedicated to organic products, wellness, and sustainable development. The show will take place at Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre (The Parc des expositions) conveniently located near Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport.
