The trade show featured a whole new look and layout, three revamped sub-areas, over 60 speakers, a world-class seminar programme, a new beauty influencer event, and the biggest hosted buyer programme to date.

As a result, Eco Living Scandinavia and the Nordic Organic Food Fair recorded a 20% increase in buyers, with purchasing power exceeding €5 million.

Poland was named Nordic Organic Food Fair’s ‘Country of the Year’ for its commitment to organic practices.

Buzz, Inspiration And Innovation

Leading retailers and supermarkets from across Europe - including Sweden, Denmark, Greece, Italy, Poland, the Netherlands, Austria, Belgium, Norway, Lithuania and Finland came to discover new brands and meet current suppliers.

As the show hosted the annual Lilla Ekomålskampen 2022 (cooking competition), other visitors in attendance included foodservice professionals, chefs and food bloggers across Scandinavia.

The first-ever ‘EgenVårdDistribution: LIVE Pitch to the Buyer’ showcased a selection of exhibitors who were hoping to secure a listing with the leading health retailer, EgenVårdDistribution.
