Natural & Organic Products Europe has announced a new initiative to help reward and celebrate the work that independent health stores do for communities around the country.
Sunday 16th April (the first day of the show) will be known as ‘Independent Day’ at Natural & Organic Products Europe – the leading business event for natural and sustainable products. Supporting independent retailers since 1997, this day will offer a carefully curated programme, plus exclusive rewards and benefits for independent retail professionals who attend the show.
Carol Dunning, Event Director of Natural & Organic Products Europe comments “We recognise that Independents are the pioneering backbone of the UK’s health and food industry, but they have experienced some of the most challenging trading conditions in recent years. Sunday has always been our day for Independents at Natural & Organic Products Europe, so we’re excited to make ‘Independent Day’ official by offering some exciting initiatives for the industry. This includes subsidised travel to NOPEX, exclusive on-site only discounts and offers, top retail experts seminar sessions, 1-2-1 expert retail advice, a personal invitation to our awards and show party, and much more.”
She continues: “This is our biggest programme to date to support the UK’s incredible independent retail sector. And there has never been a more important time than now. We want this to be the most important investment retailers make into the success of their store this year, providing insight, inspiration and real-life, tangible ideas to take back and implement in businesses. It’s all about YOU!”
As well as special show offers, discounted travel, hundreds of unique brands, and entry into the Independent Retailer of the Year award, the Sunday is packed full of inspirational sessions. From understanding consumer habits to implementing in-store branding, these talks promise to arm independent retailers with an effective sales growth strategy for 2023.
