One of my favorite things that to do after Natural Products Expo East and Natural Products Expo West is to give awards for the best trade show booths.

Some companies put a tremendous amount of time and effort into their booths, and this is something that I believe should be acknowledged.

Here were my three favorite trade show booths from Natural Products Expo East 2014.

THE HONEST COMPANY

It didn’t take long for me to come to the conclusion that The Honest Company’s trade show booth was the most impressive one that I have ever seen. Yes, ever.

Even though the company has serious resources at its disposal – it raised $70 million from investors last month – the reality is that money doesn’t guarantee good taste or good design.  Read more »

Last week, the Fancy Food Show 2014 recently took place here in NYC and as usual, I had a fantastic time.

I can’t think of a more fun day than to see all of the new products, meet new people, and catch up with friends in the industry.

Even though I heard a lot of grumbling that there was nothing new at this show, I couldn’t disagree more. You just have to be insanely curious and willing to go to every single booth to find the gems.

Here are my Top 5 Organic Products from Fancy Food Show 2014.

Expo West 2014 was a particularly difficult show to choose only 5 products, and I easily could have selected 10 or so. The innovation at this year’s expo was fantastic, and it never ceases to amaze me what organic food companies will come up with next.

I have done something different with this year’s awards. Not only did I decide to do it in a video format, but I invited my friend Vani Hari of Food Babe to critique my selections. As you can tell from above, we had so much fun discussing these products, and we plan on repeating this at each subsequent trade show. Read more »


Comeback Award from Natural Products Expo West 2014 – GoodOnYa

Comeback Award from Natural Products Expo West 2014 - GoodOnYa

At Natural Products Expo West 2010, I discovered a company called GoodOnYa and really flipped out over its energy bars. Over time, however, the quality of the company’s products seemed to slip and I could not figure out why. When I caught up with GoodOnYa’s Founder/CEO Kris Fillat at this year’s show, she fully agreed […]

At Natural Products Expo West 2010, I discovered a company called GoodOnYa and really flipped out over its energy bars.

Over time, however, the quality of the company’s products seemed to slip and I could not figure out why. When I caught up with GoodOnYa’s Founder/CEO Kris Fillat at this year’s show, she fully agreed with my assessment and said that for the last few years the company had suffered from some very serious issues with its co-packer (manufacturer).

Fortunately, all of these problems are in the past, and the company’s products are not only back to where they were but they are significantly better than they were four years ago. Read more »
