NATURALLY GOOD EXPO 2018 – BY THE NUMBERS

Held at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Darling Harbour, the Naturally Good Expo is Australia’s largest trade show for all natural, organic and healthy products and services.

Each year we attend as a platinum partner to showcase our top sellers to the most influential people in the industry and work to build mutually beneficial connections with retailers and our suppliers. This year we unveiled our biggest stand yet – the largest at the show!

In case you missed it, here’s how our Naturally Good Expo 2018 experience happened – by the numbers!

Naturally-good-expo-2018-clif-bar1

1. ONE CRITICAL PERSON

It takes a whole lot of planning, coordination and project management to transform our original ideas into a real-life masterpiece at the Naturally Good Expo. Thankfully, we have one incredible team that makes all the late nights, early mornings, last minute hiccups and hours spent on emails and phone calls integrate into a seamless, successful event!

While we couldn’t do it without many hands on deck, there is always one person in particular that plays a pivotal role in our Naturally Good experience – our Marketing Executive extraordinaire, Carol. Thank you for all that you do!

2. TWO MAJOR STALL SPACES

This year the Unique stand took up two of the largest sites at the expo. The updated stand was dotted with sampling booths, decorated with hot new products and buzzing with staff, suppliers and retailers – it was a sight to see and the energy was incredible!

3. THREE HOUR PACK DOWN

With the Australian Pharmacy Professional Conference & Trade Exhibition looming the following weekend, most of the team had already returned to the Sunshine Coast by the time the event ended. The staff and suppliers that remained (thank you, East Bali Cashews and Natural Evolution!) packed down the stall in a record time of 3 hours!

Naturally-good-expo-2018-hot-new-products

4. FOUR SIGMATIC, MY MAGIC MUD, UPTON’S NATURALS & MORE!

This year, when it came to sampling and showcasing our amazing product range, the team had a little extra help…

Award-winning international and local creators, innovators and makers of the hottest, must-have health products joined us as part of our ‘Meet the Makers’ event – including Four Sigmatic, My Magic Mud, Manitoba Harvest and Upton’s Naturals!

Each supplier that joined our stand had the opportunity to promote and sample their products at their very own sampling booth. This allowed the suppliers to strengthen their retailer relationships and cement their place as a leading brand in the health and wellness space. Something we’re beyond proud to help facilitate!

Naturally-good-expo-2018-clif-bar

5. FIVE HUNDRED HEALTH PRODUCTS AND GOODIE BAGS

The stand was full to the brim with more than 500 natural health and wellness products on display! Plus, we handed out 500+ goodie bags to industry influencers, retail leaders, and key stakeholders filled with:

6. SIX MONTHS PREP TIME

The entire event took our team, Carol in particular, a grand total of six months to prepare for. From supporting the Naturally Good Expo team with our Platinum Partner duties, to coordinating stock, and logistics of the stand set up and staff involved, there was so much to be done and we couldn’t be prouder of our team and what they’ve achieved!

7. SEVEN THOUSAND ATTENDEES

Across two huge days, we served up thousands of product samples to 7000+ health-focused expo attendees – also known as a lot of chopping!

Sampling allowed retailers and industry leaders to gain better insights into the suppliers products, build stronger connections, learn the backstory, and discover what niche the product can fill in their stores. It’s a super important step towards long-term success in stores!

Naturally-good-expo-2018-manitoba-harvest

8. MORE THAN EIGHTY HOT NEW PRODUCTS LAUNCHED

An entire section of our stand was dedicated to over 80 hot new products launched at the expo! Brands included:

9. NINE HOUR SET UP

While the pack down was somewhat of a breeze, Rome wasn’t certainly not built overnight. Our largest stand ever took a whole lot of teamwork and around nine hours to set it all up!

10. TEN HUGE PALLETS DELIVERED

That nine hours of set up involved the unpacking and merchandising of 10 full pallets of product, equipment and stall materials!

Despite the whirlwind nature of the actual event, we put our time and effort into these events to support our suppliers, build and strengthen our retailer relationships and meet new faces along the way. We couldn’t do what we do without their support and for that, we’re always grateful!

If you missed out this time, don’t worry, we can’t wait to do it all again, so we’ll see you next year!

HOW FOUR SIGMATIC IS POPULARISING FUNCTIONAL MUSHROOM DRINKS

FROM NORDIC ORIGINS TO 25 COUNTRIES AND AMAZON BEST SELLERS, FOUR SIGMATIC MUSHROOM DRINKS AND ELIXIRS HAVE ARRIVED IN AUSTRALIA AND THEY’RE SET TO BE THE NEXT BIG THING.

Four Sigmatic is the most sought-after mushroom brand right now, with endorsements from big names like three-time Olympic medal winner, Kerri Walsh Jennings and health influencers like Tim Ferris (iTunes number one podcast channel).

Originally launching in the Nordic countries, rapid growth saw the team relocate their headquarters to the US in 2014, with a US retail launch soon after in January 2015. They’ve since expanded into retail in 25+ countries and online in 65+ countries.

four-sigmatic-best-seller

Behind the brand is a group of ‘Finnish Funguys’ (as they like to call themselves) with an abundant passion for health, knowledge on functional mushrooms, and a drive for innovation.

Tero Isokauppila studied and used mushrooms for 20 years, starting his first mushroom venture in 2005, before founding Four Sigmatic in 2012 with long-time friends Mikael and Henri.

Four Sigmatic now has a thriving range of elixirs, coffees and cacaos that can be easily stirred into hot water, smoothies and even baking, made with wild-picked, log-grown and certified organic mushrooms.

four-sigmatic-amazon

You might be wondering ‘what type of customers want to drink mushrooms’? These functional beverages are popular with multiple consumer segments from athletes and the health-conscious to those simply trying to combat the stressors of modern lifestyles.

Consumer awareness of the benefits of functional mushrooms is also growing with various types already available in supplement form in Australia.

Functional beverages are one of the fastest growing beverage categories in Australia with IBISWorld anticipating annualized growth at a massive 58.2% the five years to 2018/19.

Through their innovative, versatile and easy-to-use instant drinks like mushroom coffee and hot cacao, Four Sigmatic has also popularised ingredients like chaga, reishi, cordyceps and lion’s mane mushroom varieties.

FOUR-sigmatic-Range

They aim to globally popularise the consumption of functional mushroom beverages, focusing strongly on both consumer and trade education as well as PR on the ingredient benefits and how to use the products.

“We’ve used the two widely loved categories – coffee and hot chocolate – as introductory delivery systems for our functional mushrooms to encourage daily consumption and help people upgrade their habits without cutting anything out,” said Tero.

“The products help with things we need in our modern lives – energy, mental focus, stress relief, restful sleep and immune system support.”

Plus, they’re committed to giving back. A percentage of profits goes to Boarding for Breast Cancer, a non-profit advocating for healthy, active and sustainable lifestyles among young people.

HOW TO SET UP YOUR FOUR SIGMATIC PRODUCTS TO SELL 

  • Range together or split across tea/coffee and supplements for the elixirs
  • Individually barcoded to be sold separately for consumers wanting to sample or grab n’ go.
  • Train your staff on the benefits of functional mushrooms with the Four Sigmatic Mushroom Academy!

Mushrooms Make It Mainstream!

FUNCTIONAL FOODS AND MEDICINAL MUSHROOMS HAVE MERGED TOGETHER IN THE QUALITY, ON-DEMAND BRAND THAT’S NEW TO AUSTRALIA – FOUR SIGMATIC.

In 2016, SPINS wrote “In prior years, medicinal mushrooms were found mainly in dietary supplement form but are now commanding consumer attention in ready-to-drink tea”. Fast forward this trend a year and medicinal mushrooms have made it mainstream and driving ahead are the Finnish Funguys (excuse the pun) from Four Sigmatic.

Who is Four Sigmatic?

With a goal to bring mushrooms to the masses and desire to help people incorporate these superfoods (mushrooms) into their diet by upgrading existing habits, Four Sigmatic have created a range of Elixirs, Mushroom Coffees and Mushroom Hot Cacaos.

Four Sigmatic

“As a brand founded in Finland and now sold in 25 countries, we always love introducing our products into new locations around the world,”
says Tero Isokauppila, Four Sigmatic Founder.

Why You Need Four Sigmatic in Your Store

Already thriving in 25 different countries, we expect big things from Four Sigmatic in the Australian market as the mushroom category continues to grow.

The global mushroom market was valued at over AUD $44.61 billion in 2015. This figure is expected to grow at a CAGR of above 9.2% between 2016 and 2021 and will reach above AUD $75.63 billion by 2021.

Between 2015 and 2016 the natural channel saw significant growth in sales of the mushrooms that are specifically used in Four Sigmatic’s range. Reishi grew 89%, chaga grew 46% and cordyceps grew 21%.

Get to Know The Range

The Four Sigmatic product range is made up of three categories Elixirs, Mushroom Coffee (with cordyceps + chaga or  lion’s mane + chaga) and Mushroom Cacao (with cordyceps or reishi). None of Four Sigmatic’s products are listed on WADA and are 100% safe.

Within these ranges Four Sigmatic use a variety of medicinal mushrooms including reishi, chaga, cordyceps and lion’s mane. Each mushroom has been recognised to assist the consumer in different ways. Below is a breakdown of what functions each offers.

Four Sigmatic

Chaga – for extra antioxidants

The chaga mushrooms that Four Sigmatic source grow in the wild on birch trees in clean, unpolluted areas of eastern Siberia.

They are known as ‘the King of Mushrooms’ because of the astounding medicinal properties they offer. Chaga has been used since the 17th century in Russia to guard against several diseases and is one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants.

“1G of strong chaga extract equals 17KG of carrots in the ORAC scale,”
says Mikael Makinen, Four Sigmatic Sales Manager.

Chaga is also highly alkaline, making it perfect to combine and lessen the acidity of coffee, resulting in a smooth, delicious concoction.

Because of the energy enhancing benefits chaga offers and the smooth, enjoyable taste, it was used as a coffee replacement during World War II.

Once gathered, Four Sigmatic process the chaga through a state-of-the-art dual-extraction and spray-drying process to ensure bioavailability and at least 30% polysaccharide and 2% triterpene content.

Cordyceps – for performance

For at least 1,000 years, cordyceps have been known in Asia as a sacred treasure to increase vitality and today more than 600,000 Chinese use this medicinal mushroom regularly. Cordyceps mushrooms grow in the wild only on the Tibetan mountains above the tree line, from an altitude of at least 4km.

Cordyceps are known to help enhance oxygen intake, helps consumers to produce energy on the cellular level and offer great adrenal gland support.

Four Sigmatic

Four Sigmatic explain “Our potent cordyceps is a full-spectrum, dual-extract of optimally fermented, widely-studied strain of cordyceps, the Cs-4. It is guaranteed to contain at least 40% polysaccharides and 15% cordycepic acid (mannitol).”

Lion’s Mane – for the brain

Lion’s mane mushrooms have also been used in traditional Chinese medicine for hundreds of years for their brain-boosting properties. These delicious mushrooms grow in hardwood forests around the world.

“Recent science has focused on Lion’s Mane’s exceptional effects on the regeneration of our nervous system,” Four Sigmatic explained.

Lion’s mane is also used in the range due to its ability to help offer natural nootropic (cognitive boosting) effects.

Four Sigmatic lion’s mane mushroom extract is made by dual-extracting the optimally grown fruiting bodies and then spray-dried without any fillers or carriers. The final extract powder is standardized to 30% polysaccharide content.

Reishi – for stress relief

Reishi is another ancient and well-studied medicinal mushroom. It’s recognised that it helps to balance the adrenal system and relieves stress.

Four Sigmatic explain, “Reishi is known to nourish the shen, a person’s mind and emotional balance.”

Again, the brand uses a state-of-the-art dual-extraction process, which has been proven to be one of the most effective for extracting the active components.

Train your staff with the amazing and free Four Sigmatic’s Mushroom Academy.

More Reasons Why Customers Love Them

They may be Funguys, but Four Sigmatic takes quality seriously. They use the highest quality ingredients including wild-picked, or log grown and certified organic mushrooms. All are quality tested rigorously.

“We are excited to bring Four Sigmatic to Australia and introduce the country to these amazing superfoods and all the health benefits they offer including increased energy, mental focus, stress relief, restful sleep, revved up metabolism
and immune system support,”
Four Sigmatic explain.

Customers will love how easy the range is to use – dissolve one packet into a cup of hot water, mix it into a smoothie, add it to your raw slices – the opportunities are endless.

Watch this great video on how to make Mushroom Coffee featuring Four Sigmatic’s Founder to see just how easy it is.

Four Sigmatic

Their products are vegan, paleo and don’t contain additives, gluten, lactose, white sugar or soy.

Tips For Fast Four Sigmatic Sales

So where should you place such products? While you may go to add them to your tea, coffee and cacao range in your grocery isle, it’s important that Four Sigmatic are showcased as offering high quality, medicinal mushroom benefits.

Four Sigmatic recommend placing them in your supplements/health and body care as a brand set. For best sales results, Four Sigmatic have ensured that each box is filled with individually barcoded sachets, allowing you to add them to your front counter for single sachet impulse buys.

To offer customers Four Sigmatic sachets as single serve purchase, you can remove them from the box all together and add them to a display of your choice, or utilise the box. To do this, pull all sachets out, fold the two side flaps into the box and bend the back flap back to reveal the inner of the lid. Lastly put the sachets back ensuring you keep the side flaps secured inside the box as you do this.

As the brand transitions into Australia, it’s highly recommended to sell the sachets individually, as well as offering boxes for those customers who have tried the products and are happy to commit to the full size.
