After a two-year break, Eco Life Scandinavia and the Nordic Organic Food Fair made a successful return at MalmöMässan last week on 17-18 November, attracting 3,675 attendees - including senior professionals and buyers from independent retailers, distributors, wholesalers, and supermarkets such as COOP, Lidl, Ikea, Hemköp, ICA, Life, Netto, Holland & Barrett, Midsona and more.
The organisers said visitors came from across Europe, including Poland, France, Finland, UK, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Germany and Poland to meet the 450 exhibiting companies, despite some restrictions linked to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“It was incredible to see the organic and sustainability community in high spirits last week at Eco Life Scandinavia and the Nordic Organic Food Fair. After an unprecedented time of uncertainty, finally, we had the green light to put on an unmissable event for our industry,” commented Event director, Melina Viking.
