Visitors to this month's Natural & Organic Products Europe trade show will be able to source more certified organic food, drink, health, nutrition, and beauty products than ever before.
Close to half of the 650 companies exhibiting at the 2016 event, taking place at ExCeL London on 17-18 April, have announced that they will be promoting certified organic products – including a record number of Soil Association symbol holders.
The Soil Association has confirmed that 112 of their licensees will be showcasing their latest organic innovations (up from around 90 last year). Plus, there will also be a wealth of organic food, health and beauty products bearing certification marks from around the world; including Organic Food Federation, Organic Farmers & Growers, IOFGA, Demeter, Ecocert, COSMOS, EU Organic (Euro Leaf), USDA Organic, BDIH, Bioagricert, Skal, Bio Suisse, Organic Food Chain, ICEA, Kiwa BCS Öko-Garantie, and JAS among others.
“Our exhibitors include some of the most innovative manufacturers and suppliers working in the organic market today. They are constantly evolving and developing their products to keep their customers coming back for more. So whether visitors are travelling from a mile away or all the way around the world to attend, they'll find more of the best quality, certified organic products here than at any other trade show in the UK this year," says event director Carol Dunning.
“We are thrilled that a record number of Soil Association licensees will be exhibiting at this year's Natural & Organic Products Europe," comments Clare McDermott, Business Development Director at Soil Association Certification. “Over 100 Soil Association licensed companies from across the food and drink and health and beauty sectors will be showcasing their products, reflecting the strong growth in the organic market, which has continued for a third year. The organic market continued to grow in 2015 by 4.9% and is now just under £2 billion, with significant growth coming from online and independents.
“We have certified more new products than ever before and this show gives brands a great platform for profiling their amazing new products. Natural & Organic Products Europe is a fantastic opportunity for demonstrating the range and innovation within the organic sector and has to be the main event on every organic manufacturer's and retailer's calendars," says McDermott.
Natural & Organic Products Europe 2016 will feature a joint organic food pavilion from The Soil Association and Organic Trade Board, who have joined forces for the first time at the show under the slogan 'Growing Organic Together'. This 25-stand pavilion will include the popular Soil Association Organic Chiller area.
