Natural Products Expo West, the world’s largest natural, organic and healthy products event, broke industry records again this year!  This annual springtime event grew by 6.9 percent in 2016 hosting more than 77,000 attendees.

Exhibitors from around the country and across the globe came to Anaheim, California to showcase the newest in natural and specialty foods, organic, health and beauty, natural living, supplements and pet products.

Five vast halls of the Anaheim Convention Center were teeming with over 3000 exhibits from more than 1,800 companies and included over 600 first-time exhibitors.

VegTV has been covering what Vogue Magazine aptly called “Fashion Week of Natural Foods” for 15 years and it never disappoints! This is the place to spot trends in food as well as other types of consumer packaged goods.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the more than two-dozen VegTV videos shot on the floor of the Anaheim Convention Center at this year’s Natural Products Expo speak volumes about how far vegan products have come.

Manufacturers continue to ‘step up to the plate’ and it was never more evident than it was this year, as the overflow of hot new products were housed in the adjacent Hilton Hotel Anaheim.

The NEXT Forecast 2016, an insider’s guide for the natural products market predicts strong growth for the natural products industry, with U.S. consumer sales of natural, organic and healthy products forecast to expand 64 percent from $153 billion in 2013 to $252 billion by 2019

The VegTV Best of Show picks run the gamut from dairy-free cheese, wholesome sweets and innovative meat and egg alternatives to south of the border cooking sauces, personal care and superfood snacks, beverages and supplements. VegTV on the Road
