Inaugural Healthy & Natural Show, Set for Chicago, May 5-7, 2016, to Feature Emerging and National Brands in Natural, Organic and Nutritional Products

CHICAGO, Jan. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Natural and organic food is the fastest growing sector in the American food marketplace, and the Midwest has long been a hotbed for food development and innovation, as well as a launching pad for leaders in the good food movement. Likewise, the region has emerged as a strong consumer market for healthy lifestyles and products.

Now, for the first time, the Healthy & Natural Show, set for May 5-7, 2016, at Navy Pier in Chicago, will bring together leading retailers and product manufacturers who are disrupting the industry with new and innovative healthy products.

Produced by William Reed Business Media, in conjunction with FoodNavigator-USA and NutraIngredients-USA, the inaugural Healthy & Natural Show will highlight local and national brands across six product categories: food, beverage, supplements, pet products, household products and personal care. The event will provide a venue for small, local companies and established national brands to showcase products to all channels of retail, from independent retailers to conventional grocers, and e-commerce to other specialty formats. 

"We're in an age where consumers have just as much access to information as those retailers with whom they shop," said Len Monheit, General Manager, North America for William Reed. "We're going to empower our retail community by giving them an intimate show experience and greater access to exhibitors, brands and information."  

"Placing this event in Chicago is deliberate," Monheit continued. "The Midwest is rich with emerging brands and hungry retailers. At Navy Pier, we'll create a unique environment that will allow newer brands to showcase their products to a leading retail buyer audience."

The show kicks off with an educational series focused on demystifying such topic as non-GMO, probiotics, supplement labels, and the highly debated topic of how to define "natural."
