Of the more than 3,000 brands expected to exhibit at Natural Products Expo West in March, nearly 250 have self-identified as being owned by women. Some familiar names include Chickapea, GoodSam, Kuli Kuli, Nuritas and True Grace. Others are emerging brands striving for success in this industry. Women-owned (or co-owned) members of the first (included) ACCESS cohort are Mocktail Club, Maazah (a 2023 Pitch Slam competitor), Sweet Logic, Sweetkiwi (a 2023 NEXTY Awards finalist), Tiny Sprouts, Wonder Monday, Sip Herbals, Sea Monsters and TWRL Milk Tea.
Admittedly, not every women-owned brand is easily identified as such on the Expo West Exhibitor List (search by keyword) or the Virtual Booths list (check attributes filter or search by keyword). But we chose 30—not including those mentioned above—to present in this gallery in honor of International Women's Day on March 8 and Women's History Month.
Here's to all the women entrepreneurs working to make the natural products industry one that creates health, joy and justice for all people while regenerating the planet. Click through the gallery to see the 30 brands.
