What They Say

WHAT INDUSTRY BODIES – OUR ENDORSERS – HAVE TO SAY…

The South African Organic Sector Organisation (SAOSO) represents everyone in the organic value chain – consumers, producers, retailers – anyone concerned about how our food is grown and how we can protect our future food freedom and the natural ecology of Mzansi. With demand for organic produce outstripping supply, there is great potential for farmers to enter the organic market where they can be rewarded for being custodians of the soil for future generations.  Largely informal and with organic status not recognised as a path to sustainability and growth, the local organic sector is growing exponentially through awareness by consumers of the nutritional and health benefits of organic produce and the recognition by farmers of the need to regenerate our soils. SAOSO is proud to endorse the Organic & Natural Products Expo Africa 2020 and the timing is perfect – in fact overdue. We look forward to working with the team to make this a great success!

Hi, I am Bruce Cohen, publisher of Food & Beverage Reporter as well as founder of Absolute Organix (AO), a leading supplier of organic products into the retail sector. In the 15 years since I started the AO business, and in tracking industry trends through the magazine, I have seen, both globally and locally, consumer interest in and appetite for organic and natural products grow in leaps and bounds. We now find ourselves in a position where these categories are fast becoming “mainstream”, with leading retailers dedicating increasing shelf space to these products. The timing for an Organic & Natural Products Expo is, in my opinion, absolutely optimal and, wearing both my hats, I am jumping in boots and all to make it work.

WHY EXHIBIT

The organic and natural products sectors are growing rapidly around the world. Africa may be slow coming to the market but is catching up fast with more major retail and chain stores introducing house brands and dedicating shelf space to products in these categories. Specialist retail outlets are also expanding rapidly. They are all looking for new products , new suppliers and a competitive edge.Similarly overseas buyers are looking for new sources of unique products that they can market in their home territories. Africa can produce these.Finally, consumers are now becoming a force to be reckoned with in these categories with “over the counter” sales in South Africa alone worth tens of millions of Rands a year – and growing.

Event Activations

The organisers are planning a multitude of corresponding activities to educate, entertain and enhance exhibition offerings.
These include: International Product Showcase, demonstrations, presentation theatre and book signings to name a few.
