March is national nutrition month and it is also when the Annual Natural Products Expo takes place in Anaheim. Thousands of “natural” food, beverage, skincare, cleaning products, vitamins and related companies get to together and launch new products and new lines to thousands of retailers, manufacturers and health care professionals.
When I started attending Expo West in 2005, it was new and exciting to see all the “organic” brands I had just learned of and try their new and latest “healthy” product. Year after year, the crowd multiplied and it was evident what would be “in” that year. From soy products to rice products to lentil chips to coconut ice cream and from flax oil to turmeric, you can check out the trend in this industry at these shows.
