With Expo West being canceled, a look at some new products and announcements from organic brands


Due to Expo West being canceled, many organic brands were unable to showcase their new products and failed to receive the attention that Expo West delivers.

Today’s special Organic Insider email, which I mentioned in my last two newsletters, is a small attempt to help put the spotlight on some of these products, but by no means is this the entire list of everything that was supposed to be unveiled in Anaheim. I also decided to include news and special discounts, mostly related to COVID-19, that brands are offering.

Going forward, as I always do, I will continue to profile new organic products and feel free to contact me if your organic product was not included below. No one paid to be listed in this email. I simply wanted to be of help.

I hope you are all staying safe and look forward to the day when we can all see each other again at a trade show.
