Taking place on 5 June, the Naturally Good Summit will welcome buyers from the supermarket duopoly, who will discuss the challenging retail landscape, their vision and strategies for the future and advice for suppliers.
The Summit forms part of the Naturally Good expo, an annual B2B trade show for the natural, organics and healthy product sectors.
Taking place on 5 and 6 June at the ICC Sydney, the event will see businesses spruiking their wares on the trade show floor, with supporting events including the Naturally Good Awards and the Naturally Good Summit.
The Summit’s Retail Talk panel will comprise Melissa Matteo, head of buying, health and breakfast, at Coles, alongside Shruti Gupta, head of buying, heath and wellness, at Woolworths. Fellow retailers Healthylife and Ultra Beauty will also contribute, and the panel will be facilitated by Jessica Maree Gordoun, partner at Ranged.
“From supply chain disruptions, finding and keeping staff, margin pressure, cost of acquiring customers – there’s been a lot to contend with for both online and bricks and mortar stores,” the Naturally Good Summit program reads, adding that the panellists will share details of their business’ “greatest challenges and how they’ve responded, their vision and strategies for the future, opportunities and key takeaways for suppliers for 2023 and beyond.”
Other Summit sessions include:
- How Healthy Do We Really Shop?
- What’s Now and Next for Nutrition, Health and Wellness?
- Navigating Sustainability
- A Day in the Life of a Future Consumer
