“Supermarket Guru” Phil Lempert will present results of an exclusive survey detailing consumer attitudes about health and wellness at supermarkets as part of an educational track hosted by SN at Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore next month.
Lempert, a contributing editor to SN, will outline survey results and address how shoppers feel about the selection, service and prices of natural and better-for-you items at their local supermarkets, as well as speak to what retailers are doing right and which areas need improvement.
The event will also include the presentation of the 2014 SN Whole Health Enterprise Award and a panel discussion with representatives of its winner, Wakefern Food Corp./Shoprite. Executives of Food Essentials and New Hope Natural Media will review hot-selling items in health and wellness and provide a forecast for emerging trends, drawing on unique insight tools. Experts in the distribution and brokerage fields will address the opportunities for natural/organic brands in the supermarket space, and what brands need to know to partner with retailers and succeed on shelves.
Additional details of the event are available at the Expo East website. Those interested need to complete Expo East registration and can attend SN's event with their Expo badge. Seating is limited so early arrival is encouraged.
