Organic products have never been so popular in France, and the international trade show NATEXPO will reflect this at its next edition which will take place on 22, 23 and 24 October 2017.
All of the sectors of the organic market concerned by this fantastic boom will gather in Paris Nord Villepinte: the food, cosmetics and dietary supplements industries, as well as personal and household products and services. NATEXPO is the unmissable event at which to discover all of tomorrow’s best-selling products before everyone else!
The show provides an exceptional opportunity for national and international buyers and decision-makers to discover, under one roof, all of the new products presented by 650 dynamic exhibitors, true driving forces of the economy. This year, the event will present a multitude of innovations allowing visitors to discover the many openings offered by the organic market.
This exhibition is the only one in Europe to display the full organic market offer, with sectors dedicated to organic food and wine, health food and dietary supplements, cosmetics and hygiene, products and services for the home, as well as two new sectors at this edition: one for ingredients and raw materials and the other for services and equipment for retail.
Organic products: a powerful undercurrent in all sectors
Sales of organically-farmed products are experiencing unprecedented growth in France. According to estimates, they had reached 6.9 billion euros at the end of 2016, up 1 billion euros in the space of just one year. The ex-factory sales revenue of organic food processing companies has also seen a double-figure rise: +18% in 2014 and +15% in 2015. The manufacture of cosmetic products rose by 10% in value in 2015, and over the same period, the value of dietary supplements went up 5%.
As for organic cleaning products, their output value increased by 13% in 2015.
The leading exhibition accelerating organic trends
NATEXPO, the international trade show for organic products, is the leading B to B event in France which has become the European standard for all buyers and decision-makers, in all product categories:
• Organic food and wine
• Cosmetics and hygiene
• Health food and dietary supplements
• Products and services for the home, for personal use and for retail
In 2017 NATEXPO is creating 2 new sectors to constitute a European first and gather together an exhaustive organic offering under one roof.
• Ingredients and raw materials: ingredient sourcing and supply is the major challenge faced by the organic sector in Europe. This sector aims to speed up business connections between processors (of dietary supplements and/or food products) and their suppliers.
• Services and equipment for retail: an area devoted to fittings and services for points of sale with a focus on online retail, e-commerce, packaging-free shops and snacking.
NATEXPO aims to accelerate organic trends in a dynamic market whose players must cater to the demands of purchasers in all areas regarding quality and new products.
12,000 visitors are expected to attend for the 2017 edition, discovering the multiple market innovations offered by 650 companies exhibiting in 6 activity sectors
