The inaugural Healthy & Natural Show will offer an ‘extraordinary opportunity’ for product manufacturers and marketers offering healthy and natural products, and for retailers looking to better understand this high growth set of categories.

This trade event will cover food, beverage, dietary supplements, personal care, pet and household products designed for the growing segment of the population demanding cleaner, healthier products.

The event will be held at Chicago’s Navy Pier, May 6 and 7, 2016 with education on May 5, and is presented by William Reed Business Media, veteran event organizers and award-winning publisher of FoodNavigator-USA and NutraIngredients-USA.

The education offered will provide a comprehensive overview of the specialized sensibilities of this market, as well as regulatory considerations, and quality imperatives. 

“We’re extremely excited to launch this event in Chicago and the Mid-West. Many know Chicago for food innovation and distribution; we intend to make it the showcase for healthy products across many consumer categories for the U.S. and across the Americas,”​ said Len Monheit, General Manager, North America for William Reed Business Media.

“We invite all retailers to enhance their focus on healthier product options in order to reengage with increasingly aware consumers. We invite healthy brands to showcase their innovative offerings made with clean ingredients, often addressing specialized needs and preferences that forward thinking families increasingly prefer.”

The value of U.S. retail sales of natural and organic products is approaching $110 billion. Combining that with the $36 billion dietary supplements sector, and other healthy product categories, the Healthy & Natural show has a total addressable market of approximately $200 billion in the US alone.

“The success and industry engagement of FoodNavigator-USA and NutraIngredients-USA has placed us at the epicentre of the dynamic healthy products environment in the US. We see need, opportunity and a unique ability to extend our community building efforts with this Chicago event,”​ noted Charles Reed, CEO of William Reed.

“At William Reed we are very focused on helping our customers achieve success in their business and this show will be a major part of that. We are excited to be working with the industry on this new project.”

The international multi-media events company already welcomes over 40,000 delegates to more than 40 live events, conferences and exhibitions every year – on every continent.

The inaugural Healthy & Natural Show is produced in conjunction with market-leading publications FoodNavigator-USA and NutraIngredients-USA. The event is additionally supported by BakeryAndSnacks.com, BeverageDaily.com, ConfectioneryNews.com and DairyReporter.com.
