Healthy Living Industry Prepares for Asian Boom With the Launch of Natural & Organic Products Asia 2014

HONG KONG, CHINA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- With many of the world's best natural and organic supplements, food, daily commodities and beauty products companies converging on Hong Kong for next week's Natural & Organic Products Asia 2014, the new show is set to ignite the region's burgeoning healthy living sector.

Running from August 27 to 29, the sell-out show is a unique commercial platform in Asia for retailers, distributors and health and beauty practitioners to network with one another and explore business opportunities with more than 140 exhibitors from 25 countries. These exhibitors will showcase natural products and services that span the entire healthy living industry: from the latest food and beverage products to nutritional supplements, cosmetics, toiletries, household cleaning products, home textiles, housewares, spa supplies, health and fitness products, and more.

"Demand for safe, sustainable food and beauty products is creating a huge market for natural products in Asia as incomes rise and consumers demand healthier options for themselves and their families. We expect to see this market accelerate rapidly to outpace established markets in Europe and the US," Stuart Bailey, General Manager of Diversified Communications Hong Kong, the organizer of Natural & Organic Products Asia 2014, says.

To support the growth of the healthy living industry in Asia, Natural & Organic Products Asia 2014 is focusing on creating business opportunities in four key areas: natural food, health & nutrition, natural living and natural beauty & spa. In addition to enjoying full access to specialist pavilions and exhibitions, visitors will be inspired in the Organic Kitchen, pampered in the Natural Beauty Studio, and coached by industry experts in the Wellness Theatre.
