Natural Products Canada (NPC) is co-locating their Investor Meeting with Nutrition Capital Network (NCN) to CHFA Now (Toronto), a conference and trade show for the natural, organic and wellness industry, slated for September 15 Exhibition Place, Toronto. 

The NCN-NPC Investor Meeting is an exclusive opportunity for 20 of Canada’s top natural nutrition start-ups to pitch to a collection of international nutrition and wellness investors and industry leaders. Co-locating at CHFA Now provides investors with added opportunities to engage with the Canadian health and wellness industry. 

“Attendees of our NCN-NPC Investor Meeting will be able to take full advantage of the dynamic content at the CHFA Now conference, and gain insights and new partners at the trade show,” said Shelley King, CEO of Natural Products Canada. “It’s a great way to identify and act on opportunities in the Canadian marketplace.” 

The idea to co-locate at CHFA Now has been around for a while as NPC and CHFA have partnered on various other initiatives. With COVID impacting travel decisions for everyone, coupling the two events to provide optimal travel efficiency for attendees was a natural next step. 


“Co-locating our Canadian investor meeting at CHFA-NOW adds an extra component to the annual showcase of Canadian natural food and wellness start-ups,” said Mike Dovbish, executive director, NCN. “It’s a bonus for investors to have the who’s who of Canada’s natural, organic and wellness industry all in one place.” 

“We are delighted to have NCN-NPC host their Investor Meeting as part of CHFA Now Toronto this September,” said Aaron Skelton, CHFA president and CEO. “Our mission at CHFA is about getting more healthy living products into the hands of more Canadians. This partnership helps us further this commitment by giving Canadian wellness start-ups a chance to connect with decision-makers and thought leaders who can provide the resources and networking needed to take their business to the next level, advancing this entire industry.”
