NATURALLY CALMING PRODUCTS PROVE SLEEP SELLS

Even before the heightened uncertainty of the past year, Australians weren’t getting enough sleep. More than a third of them to be precise. 

At the same time, we’re also a nation feeling the increased pressure of stress and anxiety. 

It’s an unbreakable cycle of lack of sleep and stress, stress and lack of sleep.

But Australians also have an insatiable appetite for natural calming products and remedies… and it’s driving demand for products to reduce stress, anxiety and improve sleep.

The pursuit of calm

At Unique Health Products we are ahead of the curve, with a large range of products that are designed to relax and calm the mind, naturally.

What ACO Means For Me?

FREE RANGE, CRUELTY FREE, PASTURE FED, SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE, GROWN FREE FROM SYNTHETIC PESTICIDES, GM, HORMONES AND ANTIBIOTICS – THE AUSTRALIAN CERTIFIED ORGANIC (ACO) BUD IS ONE LOGO THAT PROMISES IT ALL!

ACO is a not for profit, fully-owned subsidiary of Australia Organic Ltd and with over 1500 operators within its certification system, it’s Australia’s largest certifier for organic and biodynamic produce.

With today marking day one of Australian Organic Awareness Month, as a retailer, you may be wondering how this month will affect you and what ACO means for your business. In the short – it’s all good news.

Australian Organic Awareness Month is Australia’s largest national campaign run by ACO celebrating certified organic products, across a diverse range of industries, including fresh produce, packaged food and beverages, skincare, cosmetics and more!

So tell me the good news, you say? The good news is that global demand for organic products is rising, which is said to be due to increasing health concerns and awareness.

Just over half of organic shoppers say the key factor that prompted them to start buying organic was ‘becoming more aware of the impact food, fibre or cosmetics had on personal health’.

ACO table

Organic industry revenue is forecast
to reach $919.2 million in 2016-17,
up 7.2% from the previous year.

This upward trending growth indicates that customers are increasingly buying organic and if you’re known for stocking organic, it’s your doors they’ll think of walking though first. That’s a win for the organic industry, a win for the environment, a win for your customers and a win for you!

When it comes to organic, trust has been identified as being a big barrier to purchase. ACO’s strict quality guidelines have lead their bud logo to become the most recognised and reputable organic logo amongst Australian consumers today.

85% of all shoppers say an organic
certification mark on a product
influences their purchase decision.

Throughout Australian Organic Awareness Month (this September), ACO will be running promotions, prizes and giveaways via social media, online media, print media, radio and TV, educating consumers and driving your sales of ACO products.

“It’s all about raising awareness and protecting the interest of the consumer, so our message for consumers is to look for a certified organic logo when you’re shopping – like ACO’s Bud logo – because that’s the only way to guarantee a product is truly organic.” – ACO.

To capitalise on the demand for organics and the extra exposure organics will receive during Organic Awareness Month, make sure you are stocked up with our most popular ACO brands including Power Super Foods, Protein Supplies Australia and Hemp Foods Australia.
