WASHINGTON, September 25, 2013 — Natural Products Expo East, the East Coast’s largest natural, organic and healthy living trade event, declared its commitment to help every affiliated brand, entrepreneur or buyer incorporate and implement the principles defining conscious capitalism and influence social change within their business model.
The event is expected to draw more than 22,000 industry members to the Baltimore Convention Center, September 25-28.
A Hub to share values, common goals and grassroots activism
“As a trade event, Expo East is the ideal setting for buyers to network and engage one-on-one with the brands they sell,” said Natural Products Group Show Director Adam Andersen. “But it’s also an active hub of shared values, common goals and grassroots activism.”
Many of the industry’s most notable and socially conscious brands will be exhibiting at Natural Products Expo East, including: Aubrey Organics, Small Planet Foods, Bob’s Red Mill, and Quinn Popcorn.
More than 400 first-time exhibitors, including Cottage Lane Kitchen, Hemp Naturals, and Suja Juice are expected to launch new products, including many in the NEXT Pavilion at Expo East, a testament to the dynamic growth of the healthy lifestyle market across all channels and categories including organic, functional, and specialty foods and beverages, supplements, beauty, and pet.
Conscious businesses are driven by a higher purpose, built on love and care rather than fear and stress
Dr. Raj Sisodia, a global leader in the Conscious Capitalism movement, will deliver the keynote address at Expo East. He will speak to a business approach that yields not only a successful enterprise but also a meaningful vocation and potential for social change.
“The business philosophy of Conscious Capitalism is deeply relevant for natural product companies. In today’s rapidly evolving world, it matters greatly not only what we produce but also how we run our businesses. Conscious businesses are driven by a higher purpose, built on love and care rather than fear and stress, and create multi-faceted value for all stakeholders,” said Dr. Raj Sisodia.
