The market of refined sugar, gluten and lactose or chemical input-free products, according to the 2017 Global Food and Beverage Trends report, issued by agency Mintel, reveals that four in every five Brazilians are willing to spend more in foods that really have a nutritional value that justifies the investment. Functional, probiotic, whole, and vegetarian foods, vegan and herbal products, supplements, as well as diet and light products, honey and derivatives, natural cosmetics, essential oils and candles, sports nutrition and esthetics, complementary treatments and equipment – all this universe is going to be at NATURALTECH – Natural Products, Food, Supplements and Health Fair. At its 14th edition, for the first time, the fair is going to occur in the Anhembi Exhibition Pavilion, in São Paulo, on June 6 to 9. Naturaltech, which is to be held simultaneously with BIO BRAZIL FAIR | BIOFACH AMERICA LATINA, gathers over 400 exhibiting companies, which release around 1,200 products and services. There are representatives of several countries among such companies that recognize Brazil as a bright market to start or consolidate their business operations. The growth of the fair goes hand in hand with the evolution of the sector itself, which, according to Euromonitor Internacional, generated R$ 93.6 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow at a rate of 4.4% per year by 2021. Given such outlook, Brazil ranks fifth among the largest markets in the world and is one of the nations that developed the most in the last years. Most professional visitors consist of buyers and owners of specialized shops, restaurants, supermarkets, the wholesale market, bakeries, drugstores and perfumeries, hotels, and condominiums, gyms, clinics and clubs, from Brazil and abroad, which come to the fair in search of products that meet a growing portion of customers adopting healthier habits. Healthcare professionals, such as nutritionists, physician nutrition specialists, and therapists, also visit the fair to keep in touch with the market and be up to date with the latest products showcased by the exhibitors and dozens of hours of technical programming including seminars, talks, meetings, and workshops regarding various aspects of the natural production and health promotion. The purpose of Naturaltech is to cause suppliers and the retail market to do business, yet, the fair also collaborates to widen the concept of healthy diet and habits to consumers in general and supports the interaction with brands, exchange of experience and knowledge, thanks to seminars and parallel activities. The public in general may taste and buy products in small quantities in the pavilion directly from producers and manufacturers and also take part in the technical programming. In harmony with its philosophy of a health event, this year Naturaltech offers one more novelty and encourages the visitors and exhibitors to come to the fair by public transport.
