SPINS™ to Present at the Inaugural Healthy & Natural Show

SPINS sessions include Winning Strategies for Natural Products at Conventional Retail and How the Good Food Movement is Scaling Beyond the Fringe at the Healthy & Natural Show

CHICAGO, April 26, 2016 – SPINS, the leading provider of retail consumer insights, analytics, and consulting for the Natural, Organic, and Specialty Products Industry, will attend and present at the inaugural Healthy & Natural Show on May 5-7 at Navy Pier in Chicago.

The event will showcase six principal categories: food, beverage, dietary supplements, personal care, household products, and pet products. Over the past decade, the Midwest has emerged as a hotbed for innovative, health-focused companies. Now these companies will have a well-earned platform in their backyard to showcase their products and industry insights.

SPINS’ David Winter, sales operations and strategy director, will present on Winning Strategies for Natural Products at Conventional Retail. Attendees of this session will:

  • Understand the differentiation within natural products and how retailers can leverage the spectrum of natural appropriately for their shopper plan.
  • Learn about four major approaches to merchandising natural foods employed by mainstream retailers and why they work (or don’t work).
  • Gain insight into the most recent crop of successful crossover natural products and what commonalities they share.

SPINS’ Kora Lazarski, strategic alliance manager, will be presenting in the educational session, How the Good Food Movement is Scaling Beyond the Fringe. This session will help attendees:

  • Gain insights into changing consumer preferences and see case studies that illustrate how consumer preference is impacting retail level sales and product mix.
  • Learn key marketing and messaging ideas to apply to present marketing campaigns and appeal to new customers.
  • Identify consumer shopping trends.

“New entrepreneurs, regional food business incubators, accelerators, retail co-ops, and urban farming operations are all responding to the consumer call for wholesome goods that promote the vibrancy of their health and local economies,” Lazarski says. “Few places exemplify this changing landscape better than Chicago – where former stockyards of the meat-packing industry are renovated into healthy and sustainable operations for fresh produce, natural foods, cleaning products, and more. Events like the Healthy & Natural Show are great opportunities for, brands and retailers to stay current on the latest and greatest natural trends the Midwest has to offer.”
