Held under the banner of dynamism and conviviality, this reunion edition, keenly awaited by the sector since the outset of the pandemic, observed all the health guidance currently in force. In particular, a counting system was used to regulate visitor numbers, in compliance with official directives.

As a true reflection of the spectacular boom in the organic market during the Covid-hit period, Natexpo’s resilience offered professionals a valuable all-round view of all the latest developments in French and international organic markets.

The leading market players turned out in force for the event which covered the following sectors:

  • Organic food,
  • Ingredients and Raw Materials,
  • Cosmetics and Hygiene products,
  • Dietary supplements,
  • Household and personal products and services,
  • Services and equipment for retail and brands.

All the post-Covid organic products at Natexpo 2020

The numerous events organised at the show gave buyers and decision-makers an opportunity to learn about the latest trends in order to seize new opportunities and forge new partnerships: indeed, nearly 500 face-to-face business meetings were held at the show.

This edition of Natexpo was an exceptional opportunity to get a complete overview of all the new organic trends from the last few months: traceability, anti-waste, circular economy, eco-responsibility, indulgence, new technology, etc. A powerful solution to support all the players in the sector, Natexpo is a means of gaining a better understanding of market developments, particularly following the Covid-19 crisis, which turned the world on its head. The lockdown was a catalyst for the emergence of many underlying consumer expectations: a desire for local products, proximity, online services, home deliveries, etc.

The resilience of the organic sector in the limelight over two days in Lyon

Brands, retailers, buyers and decision makers from the organic sector all demonstrated
their resilience to adapt to the sudden restrictions. Natexpo enabled them to exchange
with one another about their best practices and at last come together following several
long months of quite atypical commercial relations, to discover all the latest organic
developments of the year. During these 2 days, the exhibition offered special features, advice and talks to find out all about the latest organic news in France and around the world. Designed to make life easier for professionals and enable them to develop their business, the exhibition offered theme-based trails, including the new “Zero waste” trail, alongside the “Frozen food”, “Organic catering”, “Organic private label”, “Gluten-free” and “Vegan” trails
