Santa Barbara Seasons‘ contributor Rachel Hommel, a frequent contributor to the Sustainable Seasons section of the magazine, recently ventured to the Natural Products Expo West to research industry trends.
She writes, “With a record-breaking 80,000 attendees this year, Natural Products Expo West is the creme of the crop for the natural products industry.
