UK: NOP Europe to feature record number of organics
Natural & Organic Products Europe will take place at the new venue of ExCeL London, on 19-20 April. This year’s sold out show will feature over 600 exhibitors from 40 different countries, and over 10,000 attendees are expected. In addition to nearly 70 Soil Association symbol holders showcasing their latest organic food and drink innovations, there will also be a wealth of organic produce bearing certification marks from the Organic Food Federation, Organic Farmers & Growers, Demeter, Ecocert, EU Organic (Euro Leaf), and USDA Organic, among others. The range of organic on show this year covers every food category – from slow food to vegan from snacks to charcuterie.
As well as an impressive range of exhibitors, Natural & Organic Products Europe will host two days of seminars in the Natural Products Talks Theatre and live cooking demonstrations in the Natural Food Kitchen. The 2015 line-up includes eco-chef Arthur Potts Dawson, Slow Food UK Ambassador Andrew Jones (executive chef at Chamberlain’s of London), Andrew Kojima (MasterChef 2012 finalist), and organic pioneer Craig Sams. There will also be two exclusive Soil Association presentations discussing market trends and opportunities, including the organisation’s new campaign which supports independent retailers to further grow the organic market.
