Naturally Good

Australia’s leading business expo for natural and healthy products, Naturally Good, is returning on 2-4 June at the Sydney International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour. Visitor registrations are now open.   

In its ninth year, the expo will feature more than 200 exhibitors and over 20 presentations on the latest products and consumer trends.

Naturally Good Product Manager, Sinead Kavanagh, said the show is an opportunity to showcase top tier brands and trailblazers in the natural and healthy sector, spanning Food & Beverage, Beauty & Personal Care, Home & Living, Vitamins & Supplements, and Child & Baby.

“Consumers are going to extensive lengths to source trending natural healthy products that are currently only sold at specialty retailers. Our job is to bring these brands into one arena for buyers to see, sample and experience for themselves, to see that these products truly do live up to the hype that accompanies them,” Kavanagh said.

Exhibitors will include brands such as Funday Natural Sweets, Kooee All Natural Snacks, Busher Tucker Blends, Natures Farmer Sea, and Hello Period.

There will also be an expanded focus on the natural beauty industry.

Trade visitors can also visit the highly anticipated annual Business Summit, where attendees will gain access to exclusive insight and learnings through the telling of real-life case studies from industry leaders.

The Summit will offer a snapshot into the future evolution of Australia’s marketplace for natural, healthy and sustainable packaged goods. Key topics include Trends and Innovation in 2024 and beyond; The Shop Local Movement; Sustaining Business Growth in 2024; and Evolve or Die, Gen Z, TikTok and the changing rules for cross-generational marketing.

This year’s Pitch Fest competition will be held on day two, where trade visitors will be welcomed to sit in on the industry’s most enthusiastic and innovative product pitches, that present natural, healthy, and sustainable solutions for the industry.

Visitors will also be invited to The Naturally Good Awards, judged by a panel of industry leaders, Consultant, Despina Lord, Soulfresh Founder & CEO, Didi Lo, Prof Consulting Director and Founder, Mark Field, Nicci Herrera, Owner of Retail Beauty Magazine, Ranged Managing Director, Jessica Maree Gordoun, Australian Organic CEO, Niki Ford and Tomorrowstory Director, Lisa Crawford Jones.

The 14 categories include Best Food Product, Best Beverage Product, Best Functional Food or Beverage Product, Best Home & Living Product, Best Beauty & Cosmetics Product, Best ‘Free From’ Product, Best Organic Certified Product, Best Australian Manufactured Product, Best New Brand - Sponsored by Consult Group, Retail Leader, Trailblazer, Best Complimentary Medicine Brand and Best Socially Conscious Brand. For the first time, Naturally Good will also host a People’s Choice Award, determined by a public vote.

“The calibre of the products feeding through every year truly are always more phenomenal than the last. As the industry expands and gains more traction, Australian consumers are becoming increasingly aware of and educated on natural health products.

“This inspired the brand-new People’s Choice Awards category, where the broader consumers will be able to vote on the brands that they love and enhance their everyday lives,” Kavanagh said.
