Read All About It


Unlike many food trade shows, the Natural Products Expos (East, in this case) operate pretty busy bookshops. Titles range from the technical (implementing green business practices) to the personal (cookbooks). Many of the authors make appearances here and attendees purchase books in advance of the show so they can have them signed.
