600 exhibitors, including a substantial international contingent, are expected at the next edition of Natexpo, to be held on 23 and 24 September in Lyon.
The trade show for organic professionals now takes place annually, alternating between Paris and Lyon.
The organic sector market is experiencing exceptional growth in France. Last year, it expanded by 17% to record sales of more than €8 billion. Research estimates that they could rise to €12 billion in two years’ time. Other market sectors can only dream of such spectacular growth, with demand outstripping supply. This year’s show – to be held at the heart of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region – will allow organic professionals to discover latest trends in organic products and services, from food to toiletries and from ingredients and cosmetics to health food and retail services.
Special features, theme zones and talks will also offer a chance to meet experts and discover the diversity of the players who contribute to the vitality of the organic sector day in and day out. natexpo thus offers two brand-new spaces: ‘Regional Focus’, where regional organic goods will be highlighted, and ‘Retail Expert’, which will allow the founders of organic stores to meet and discuss with retail experts.
