We were proud to organise the first Natural Health Trade Summit, a one-day exhibition and networking event in association with the National Association of Health Stores.

The first Natural Health Trade Summit in Manchester brought together over 350 independent health food store buyers in atmosphere dedicated to better and more successful retailing.


With networking being such an important part of any exhibition, the first summit included a free welcome drinks reception, sponsored by The Health Store on the Saturday evening, as well as a free three course buffet lunch on the day of the Summit, sponsored by Bee Health.


Seven round table discussions were completely free for visitors to attend. Hosted by retail experts and tackling a whole host of retail topics, the sessions encouraged retailers to discuss and share their own strategies and retailing ideas.


Over 65 of the industry’s leading brands exhibited at the summit, showcasing their special show-only offers and new products, including:

  • A Vogel
  • Bee Health
  • BetterYou
  • Bio-Kult
  • Green People
  • Kinetic
  • Lamberts
  • Modern Herbals
  • Natures Aid
  • Optima
  • Pharma Nord
  • Pravera
  • Rio Trading
  • Viridian
  • World Foods Brand Management

David Cann, managing director, commented on the first event; “We were delighted to unite the independent health food trade under one roof to network, share ideas and do business. We have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback from visitors and our exhibitors, and look forward to the Summit becoming an essential date in the industry’s diary for years to come”.
