by Redaktion (comments: 0)
Following on the success of SANA 2013 with a record number of visitors (+20% on 2012), the next edition of the fair will take place at the Bologna trade fair grounds on 6 – 9 September 2014. Organised by BolognaFiere in collaboration with FederBio and supported by IFOAM, SANA is Italy's premier tradeshow for certified organic foods, herbal products and natural and organic cosmetics - a must for sector specialists as well as for consumers.
The show is organised in three sectors. The SANA pavilions dedicated to food will be showing the very latest fresh and preserved certified organic products. The wellness sector groups health and personal care products: special diet foods (for example, gluten-free foods and products for diabetics and athletes), cosmetics made from natural and organic ingredients, medicinal herbs, food supplements, functional foods and natural remedy products. Finally, the other natural products sector covers environment-friendly lifestyles with natural-based home cleaning products and garments, chemical-free furniture and fittings, and products for moments of leisure. After the resounding success last year with exhibitors and the general public, the SANA Shop will again be a feature of the upcoming show. As in past editions, SANA 2014 will have a broad raft of seminars and conferences.
A new feature will be courses organised by the Akesios Group in collaboration with SANIS (School for Nutrition and Supplements in Sport and Wellness) and the scientific company SINSeB (the Italian Society for Nutrition, Sport and Wellness). They will target doctors, pharmacists, nutritionists, health practitioners, as well as competitive and amateur athletes. Topics will range from specific supplements for sports - both amateur and professional - to special diets for sports practitioners. More information and registration for the courses is available here.
The annual survey of the SANA 2014 Observatory, carried out by the Nomisma Institute for BolognaFiere focuses on changing Italian consumer behaviour regarding organic products and trends in the organic market, a sector that proves to be in good health and unaffected by the ongoing economic crisis. The results of the SANA 2014 Observatory survey will be presented at a congress on Saturday, 6 September. Detailed information on the fair can be found at the SANA website.
