“Today’s NPA represents more than 1,400 members and unites a diverse industry of retailers and manufacturers offering the leading food, dietary supplements, and health/beauty aids. Now, for the first time, the entire natural products ecosystem will coalesce around a single event where show profits will go directly to funding the growth of the association.” saidDaniel Fabricant, PhD, executive director and CEO of NPA.
“Given the access the NPA has to the leading organizations and innovators driving the natural products sector, creating a true ‘by the industry, for the industry’ event is a natural extension of our mission to ensure that retailers and suppliers have the opportunity to provide consumers with the products that maintain and improve their health,” Dr. Fabricant added.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Dan and the NPA team to help amplify the voice of the natural products industry. We look forward to working alongside the whole community to create the leading event experience for the entire natural products ecosystem,” said Momentum Co-Founder and Co-CEO Ben Greenzweig.
While still currently in development, The Big Natural will attract NPA members and non-members representing retailers, manufacturers and consumers. The event will offer product demonstrations, networking and education on the topics that matter most to the industry. Presenters at the event will include industry experts, government representatives, regulators, investors as well as keynote speakers from leading companies, academia and media. The Big Natural will also feature the thriving food start-up ecosystem.
