People, who were able to wath this trade fair could agree, that this meeting would be made more for french visitors an buyers. There have been only few exhibitos of other nationalities.And their presency has been made to take the chance to get into the French organic market. In this context you could meet some germans.
Also this year the french organic scenery had a good
visibility at this meeting.
You were able to meet a lot of French wholesale-partnrs directly on the fair, also some of the specialst chains took a both there as well. So a good access to the specialist market – but of course this market demands to be distributed by one or more of the traditional french players
In the cosmetic part there traditionally some strong german players. But a real attraction has been the fact that french organic producers did show a lot of modern convenience-food
Concerning new solutions of packaging, the french offer today is full of innovation. More an more products in doypack, soups , simple meals sauces
We also see a new vegtarian culture which very special for France as a country where meat consumption is a essential of nutrition
So for example one could also find vegetarian soy-products made in France with a spoecial technol.ogy to make a soy paste taste like a vegetarian variation of cheese.
So that means that also the french consumption will be in a process of change. To watch all these details is has been very fruitful to attend Natexpo and one would wish that there will more international exchange on these tendencies.
