"We welcomed some of the best and emerging brands and retailers from across the country at our first national Natural Show," said Brandon Barnholt, President and CEO, KeHE. "The excitement surrounding this show is encouraging as we take the KeHE show experience to the next level and deliver the benefits of our previous regional shows on a much grander scale."


Mr. Barnholt opened the second day of the show with his President's Address, sharing insights into the evolving natural and organic, specialty and fresh industry.

She was joined by Michelle Elsom, Town & Country Markets Inc.; Greg Leonard, Native Sun Natural Foods Market; John Pittari, New Morning Market; and Corinne Shindelar, Independent Natural Food Retailers Association (INFRA).

Available for Apple iOS and Android devices, the free app can be downloaded on the App Store and Google Play for all upcoming KeHE shows.

The New Products Showcase included more than 100 products new to KeHE within the last six months, as well as the latest on-trend items from Certified B Corp vendors and KeHE's CAREtrade partners. Throughout the show, attendees sampled and cast their votes for the "best of" awards in seven categories:
