The awards took place during Natural & Organic Products Europe 2009, which had a fantastic show this year.

It was a really memorable two days for everyone here at Natural & Organic Products Europe but it wouldn't have been complete without you. Which is why we hope you'll be joining us back at Olympia's Grand Hall next year on 11-12 April 2010!

Kind regards,

Simon Barry
