CHEYENNE - The Wyoming Business Council's Agribusiness Division is offering display space to Wyoming producers of natural and organic products at the Natural Products Expo West (NPEW) trade show in Anaheim, Calif., March 7-10, 2013.
With more than 60,000 industry members attending each year, NPEW features more than 3,000 exhibitors, buyers and owners of natural foods stores, gyms, restaurants, grocery stores and gourmet shops.
“This is a great way for manufacturers of natural and organic goods in Wyoming to get in front of buyers who are looking for these types of products,” said Donn Randall, Crop and Forage Program manager at the Business Council, who manages the state’s value-added food program.
The Business Council will have a booth at the show to display Wyoming-made products and/or literature. Companies participating will be provided two feet of table space to display product samples and literature.
Businesses will be chosen on a first-come-first-served basis. The deadline to submit products is Jan. 26, 2013 and the cost of attending is $200, a significant savings for businesses that would otherwise pay $6,500 for their own display space.
"An added benefit for the companies who will be participating this year will be the Western United States Agricultural Trade Association (WUSATA), match-making event being held during the tradeshow," said Randall. "This event should really increase the exposure for our Wyoming food companies with the Canadian all natural food buyers."
Interested Wyoming businesses should contact Randall at 307.777.6578 or firstname.lastname@example.org
