Last week in Monterey, CA, the very first Organic Produce Summit was held, and given the importance of produce within the organic industry, it was no surprise that this event was so successful and so well-received.

At the larger trade shows that I go to – Natural Products Expo West, Natural Products Expo East and Fancy Food Show – there is little to no presence of organic fruit and vegetable vendors. So, to have a dedicated event for organic produce makes a tremendous amount of sense.

And maybe that explained why the Organic Produce Summit was sold out, and featured 600 attendees and 70 trade show booths. Read more »

Last week in New York City, I attended the Fancy Food Show 2016, one of the best food shows of the year.

While it is not an organic food show per se, there is an increasing amount of organic vendors and I would estimate that about 15-20% of the booths there do offer some type of organic product.  Read more »

While the main attraction of Natural Products Expo West and Natural Products Expo East are the newest and best products, one aspect of the show that goes overlooked are the trade show booths themselves.

Some companies put a tremendous amount of time, money, and thought into their booths, and I like to acknowledge those organizations who place real importance on making theirs stand out. To me, it speaks volumes.

When selecting my best trade show booth winners, I look for four main qualities: creativity, design, originality, and execution.

There were a lot of very good trade show booths from Natural Products Expo West 2016, but these two stood out from the rest.

Over the past few years at Natural Products Expo East, my friend Vani Hari and I have hosted dinners to raise money for GMO-labeling. With no major GMO-labeling initiative on the calendar this year, we are now turning our attention to something equally as important – climate change.
