Natexpo confirmed its status as a must-attend event in the organic market at this 2020 edition, which brought together 7,965 professionals on 21 and 22 September.

As a true reflection of the spectacular growth of the organic market, Natexpo welcomed nearly 200 new exhibitors. They were accompanied by the biggest players in the organic market and exhibitors loyal to the show, thereby offering the sector’s professionals an all-round view of the latest organic developments.

Retail remains the key to the vitality of the organic market, with 24% growth recorded in 2019. There are now more than 3,000 specialist organic outlets in France with an average of 3.92 openings per week. The mass retail sector is not to be outdone with growth of 18.3% in its organic sector. [1]

This dynamism can be seen on the shelves, which are constantly reinventing themselves to make organic products more accessible and meet an increasingly exacting consumer demand.

Natexpo has a sector dedicated to Services and Equipment for Retail and Brands, to offer project sponsors all the keys to following the trends and successfully opening their shops.

Many experts were present at Natexpo and at the disposal of project developers to present their innovative processes for shop design and organisation.

Today the big trend is in loose goods, which can now be found in all distribution channels, but not just any old how! To meet the growing demand of consumers looking for simplicity in their purchases, both specialist shops and hypermarkets are adapting.
