Retailers' wish lists for Natural Products Expo East

Natural product retailers share what trends they're looking for this week and beyond.

Since May, New Hope Network has been hosting regular gatherings virtually and at the Natural Products Expos with a group of natural product retailers to share ideas, pain points and industry opportunities.

With conversation topics ranging from understanding plant-based foods to supporting in-store education, expanding supplier diversity initiatives and more, the Retail Collaboration Group provides the space to dive into some of the greatest issues facing natural retailers today.

The goal? Building collaboration models and finding areas where New Hope can best support retailers in their quest to bring better health to more people.

At the most recent gathering, New Hope’s editors also asked retailers what trends they are hoping and expecting to see at Expo East.

Click through the gallery to see what a few retailers had to say, with some product pairings chosen by New Hope Content Director Adrienne Smith.
