Natural & Organic Products Europe is back at the ExCeL London on 3- 4 April. Due to a dramatic rise in conscious consumerism, the trade show has garnered a loyal following of over 10,000 buyers and retailers from across the UK. For garden store retailers, it’s the perfect opportunity to discover the latest natural, organic, and sustainable food, drink, heath, beauty and eco-living brands.
Plant-based is now a major part of retail, which is why Natural & Organic Products Europe has expanded its Vegan World area for 2022. Visitors can expect to see the latest plant-based innovations to hit the market, including vegan cheeses, free-from alternatives, and dairy-free desserts. As well as this, the show floor will be packed with leading vegan beauty skincare brands, cruelty-free cosmetics, and high-quality plant-based cleaning products.
Event director Carol Dunning says: “We have always championed plant based ‘wholefoods’ across the show, and over the years the popularity for vegan products has increased rapidly. The Vegan Society are long-standing show partners, and so we rebranded The Vegan Society’s pavilion to a much larger ‘Vegan World’ area. This allows all vegan brands to exhibit together, putting them in front of buyers seeking out the very latest vegan products. We have the biggest Vegan World area to date, so we can confidently say we are Europe’s largest plant-based trade show and therefore worth a visit.”
Visitors can explore the latest plastic-free and vegan certified household cleaning and gardening products from Natrabands, made from biodegradable materials. These include a Water Bottle Brush, a long brush for easy cleaning of reusable drinks bottles; The Gardener’s Brush, a robust coir brush with rubberwood handle for cleaning pots, tools and more; The Kitchen Brush, a circular handheld cleaning brush with string hanging loop; Bathroom Cleaning Pad, a generous pad for cleaning bath and shower; a Back Scrubber, a generous pad with wide cotton handles for easy cleaning and exfoliating of the back and body – and many more.
For leading vegan food and drink brands, don’t miss the latest products from: The Vurger Co, The Booja Booja Co, Follow Your Heart, London Nootropics, Creative Nature, Smart Organic, Just Wholefoods, Raw Press, Sauceman, Happy Cheeze, De Smaakspecialist, Better Nature, Vivo Life, Plant Alternative, Quinola, Just Real Food and many more.
“Natural & Organic Products Europe has a fantastic vegan section. The show provides great insight into the market and for choosing what products I should be stocking in my stores,” says Harry Araby from Plant Based Supermarket.
Plant-based insights and future opportunities
As well as the central exhibition, the show has a free-to-attend seminar programme that will feature over 60+ speakers across two theatres – The Natural Products TALKS Theatre, and the Natural Beauty TALKS Theatre.
The Vegan Society will host an exciting panel titled ‘Vegan food trends: Past, current, and future insights’ in the Natural Products TALKS theatre. This unmissable session will help visitors stay ahead of the curve with plant-based consumer food trends and where the sector is heading in the year ahead.
Louisianna Waring, senior insight and policy officer at The Vegan Society will also be hosting a ‘Vegan Beauty Takeover’ in the Natural Beauty TALKS Theatre, where she will reveal The Vegan Society’s latest consumer research around vegan beauty – including what shoppers want to see, labelling preferences, market figures, and more.
