The Canadian Health Food Association April 12 – 13 | Coconut and Sriracha Explosion #CHFAWest

The Canadian Health Food Association CHFA WEST 2014

 

CHFA West 2014 was held earlier in April on 12th to 13th at the Vancouver Convention Centre. The Canadian Health Food Association is the largest conference and trade show in Western Canada focused on natural health and organics industry. Similar to EAT! Vancouver and the Grocery Showcase, it is an opportunity to see the latest trends, meet industry’s top manufacturers, distributors and brokers. If you frequent trade shows, like fashion, you will start to notice the trends.

 

Gone are the days of flax seeds and chia seeds. 2014 is all about Sriracha and coconut explosion! – Coconut Water, Coconut Oil, Coconut chips, Coconut Soy Sauce, etc.

From Non-GMO, gluten free, diary free and other chemical free / all natural products there is something for everyone. One of my favorites was the new unveiling for VEGA and their protein bars. Their products are plant based and Brendan Brazier formulator was there to shake hands. Now if only I can have one of those machines at home that would make my morning routine that much easier!
