Both of these events give us an opportunity to address decision makers in two important areas: Financial — investors and institutional money managers; and, natural foods buyers — our customers.”
About the Canaccord Adams Healthy Living Conference
The $65 billion domestic natural products industry has continued to grow, albeit more modestly, through the most difficult period of consumer spending in generations and health remains a key focus for new product growth in the US by all participants. With dramatic change over the last year, this year’s Healthy Living conference, in partnership with the Natural Products Expo East tradeshow, is an ideal opportunity to learn how the industry will capitalize on the new environment, adjust to philosophical changes in how consumers shop and where the investment opportunities reside in the healthy food industry.
This year’s presenting companies will span the food, beverage, nutrition, wellness and natural products industries. 24 public and private companies will present. A topical lunch panel will be held focusing on the new hot trends in the industry.
