HONG KONG, CHINA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/02/14 -- As Asian consumers increasingly focus on healthy lifestyles, the inaugural Natural & Organic Products Asia trade fair is being held in Hong Kong from August 27 to 29. The only Asian event to bring together the entire natural, organic and health products industry, the show will help local and overseas companies unlock the potential of the world's most exciting market for healthy and natural products.
Natural & Organic Products Asia builds on the success of Europe's leading natural and organic trade fair to promote sustainability, fair trade, ethical business and good health in Asia. The three-day event will be a platform for manufacturers, service providers, retailers, trading companies, healthcare professionals, health and beauty practitioners, and food industry executives to discuss industry trends and business opportunities. More than 120 exhibitors from 20 countries are expected to showcase the latest natural products and services from the world's most visionary, high-quality brands at the fair.
Asia's Flourishing Natural and Organic Market
Stuart Bailey, General Manager of Diversified Communications Hong Kong, the organizer of Natural and Organic Products Asia 2014, says: "Demand for natural and organic products is increasing rapidly in Asia. We believe this is the perfect time to introduce our event to international suppliers and Asian buyers and help them to harness the business opportunities inherent in this explosive growth."
Changing consumer lifestyles and rising concerns about the safety of food and beauty products are beginning to impact the buying habits of consumers across Asia. China's safe-food movement, in particular, offers an enormous opportunity to organic brands in the wake of food-contamination scandals and environmental concerns. It is estimated that China's organic market will be worth around US$7.8 billion by 2015 alone, according to Soil Association. Asia Pacific is also expected to be the fastest-growing region for organic personal care products, with an estimated compound annual growth rate of 9.7% from 2012 to 2018, according to Transparency Market Research(1).
Programme to Support Business Growth
"We are delighted with the strong response to the first Natural and Organic Products Asia," Mr. Bailey continues. "To underscore the importance of this event to the development of the industry, we have lined up world-leading brands and expert speakers and devised a programme that gives delegates the insight and knowledge to satisfy the needs of Asia's affluent consumers."
