“Natural Products Expo West has been incredible. The show floor here certainly does not look like there’s a recession in this country,” said Stephen Brooks, Co-CEO, of Kopali Organics, a Miami, Florida-based company that buys from small organic farmers from around the world.
“Retail buyers need face-to-face meetings, particularly in a slower economy,” said Adam Andersen, show manager of Natural Products Expo West. “Buyers come to this show to seek out those new products that will fly off their shelves and offer a competitive advantage to their stores.”
“Products and technologies introduced at SupplyExpo allow manufacturers to get a head start in highly competitive and emerging markets around the world,” said Len Monheit, supply portfolio director with New Hope Natural Media.
