Launched five years ago to support the global movement towards healthy and ethical practises, the Natural & Organic Products Exhibition is dedicated to inspiring South Africans to view their lifestyle and health choices as indivisible.

The Natural & Organic Products Exhibition is committed to growing the local industry sector as well. Globally, the organic industry is the fastest growing industry segment.

It provides a classic win- win situation: supporting natural and organic principles and products is not only good for the health of people and the planet, but it makes irrefutable business sense too.

Visitors to the Show are encouraged to explore, experiment and network at the exhibition.
