The 39th annual Natural Products Expo West was held at the Anaheim Convention Center March 5-9, 2019. Recognized as the world’s largest healthy products event, this year’s exposition gathered an inspired community of more than 86,000 attendees from 136 countries. In another record-setting year, the event brought together more than 3,600 exhibiting companies, including more than 600 first-time exhibitors, all determined to further fuel growth of the US natural, organic and functional food and beverage industry, which last year surged 6.6 percent to US$152 billion in sales. In 2018, conventional food and beverage sales in the US totaled US$634 billion. Growth, however, was down 0.2 percent.
