The theme of O&N Health’s 8th annual conference is “Disrupting Dysfunction: Securing Supply Chain Integrity.”

The Organic & Natural Health Association (O&N Health; Washington, DC) will host its 8th annual conference on January 17-19, 2023, at The Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village in Cape Coral, FL. This year’s conference theme is “Disrupting Dysfunction: Securing Supply Chain Integrity.”

The event’s keynote speakers are Dan Lifton, CEO of QOL Labs (and also O&N Health’s treasurer), and Dan Richard, vice president of global sales and marketing at NOW Foods.

Other conference speakers include Elan Sudberg, CEO of Alkemist Labs, and Chris Burkhart, senior vice president of sales at Nutrasource. Their presentation, titled “The Amazon Factor,” will focus on what’s needed to improve quality assurance for consumers. In a press release, O&N Health’s CEO and Executive Director Karen Howard stated, “We need a cohesive industry response to the issues arising from Amazon. Addressing the ‘Amazon factor’ is a complex issue that requires everyone to be equally vested in a business case that can serve the entire industry, while benefiting consumers and supporting our retailers. I am optimistic that the balanced and scientifically determined actions we have taken will result in true collaboration, which is why this issue is at the top of our agenda at the conference this year.”

Other discussion topics at the conference will include regenerative agriculture innovation for the supply chain; using blockchain technology to build consumer trust; workplace recruitment and retention strategies; 2023 political updates; and more.

The conference will open a day early on January 16 for optional networking events. View registration information here.
