Women in Naturals is good networking

What started off as a few tables of mellow conversation turned into a bustling schmoozefest as Women in Naturals kicked off the weekend with a night of networking. Women from various segments of the industry—including educators, manufacturers, writers, brokers, retailers and distributors—noshed, drank and exchanged business cards. Here’s who made an appearance.
