CHFA Show – Idea for a successful trade show
[Show Guide is included below in this week FRN]

Attending a tradeshow as a retailer and staff it often is quite overwhelming, and with the new venue this year even the veteran trade show attendees may find it a challenge.
Here are a few tips to hopefully help you make the most out of the CHFA show.
  • Don’t leave home without a clear plan 
  • Identify the key vendors you must visit, along with the booth number from the CHFA show guide, then identify any vendors with new products which you think will increase sales without overextending your inventory budget, 
  • Review the Show Guide with your team, to choose what education seminars and events to attend, I suggest if there is a Health Canada regulatory meeting or CHFA meeting, have one of the team attend and take notes.
  • Have your team attend a variety of education seminars, ask each to take notes to share later with the team
  • Prepare orders beforehand, so you can add on new products or specials at the vendor booth, and not waste time ordering regular stock.
  • Look/ask, for merchandising materials, signs, displays the vendors provide which will help sell more of their product to your customers.
  • If you have an active social media programask the vendors for content, or see if there is an interest to support your campaigns
  • Set up staff trainings for any new products you believe will add value to your business
  • Be careful not to bring home too much vendor printed materials as you may find you never will find the time, once back in your office, to look at it, that was my experience, lol,
  • COOP – when I attended a show as a retailer this was the focus, as I knew how to order, merchandise, and educate the team so I wanted to come back from a show with a nice $$$ COOP budget to help bring in new customers and assist the vendor in selling ‘their’ product through ‘my’ store. Coop must be WIN, WIN, so both you and the vendor feel the COOP has value!
  • Network with other retailers, vendors, and  health experts, this often was the highlight of my show! There are so many amazing people, so many laughs, so many hugs and so many valuable ideas to improve your business!
  • Be Grateful for the hard work CHFA and vendors put in to create such an incredible event!
Happy Sales

Rapeseed/Canola (Brassica napus subsp. napus), also known as rape, or oilseed rape, is a bright-yellow flowering member of the family Brassicaceae (mustard or cabbage family), cultivated mainly for its oil-rich seed, which naturally contains appreciable amounts of erucic acidThe term canola denotes a group of rapeseed cultivars which were bred to have very low levels of erucic acid and are especially prized for use as human and animal food. Rapeseed is the third-largest source of vegetable oil and the second-largest source of protein meal in the world.[citation needed]
“I had no idea was such a major source of protein meal, too bad it is mainly all GMO!” dp
How Customer Service and Passion Could Save Your Business

Like most people, at least 62% according to a 2019 study by Hello Products, I don’t like going to the dentist. However, this was my week for getting a cavity checked out and I headed down to the dentist’s office. You know the routine; you get questioned and prodded by the dental assistant as she takes x-rays and pokes around in your mouth. Yet, for some reason this dental assistant seemed different from most others. She seemed passionate about her job and was eager to explain to me why they were taking my blood pressure and why a bone in my mouth hurt when she took an X-ray. It made my experience of the dentist so much better than usual.

One would think that when times are tough customer service would take a front seat in the minds of business leaders. However that doesn’t seem to be the case. Take for example my daughter’s experience recently of going into the bank where she simply asked why they weren’t answering the phone when she called. The receptionist blew up and told her that people were busy working from home and it wasn’t a priority. My daughter is now in the process of changing banks.

Atherosclerosis is a Non-Healing Wound

While chronic inflammation of the coronary artery wall is finally appreciated to be the direct cause of all coronary atherosclerosis by cardiologists and internists, there appears to be little curiosity as to what is causing this pandemic of inflammation that kills about 50% of the world population every year. [1,2] When a 50-year-old man has a heart attack but is completely free of all known risk factors for heart disease, the treating cardiologist just considers that individual to have had bad luck, although that sentiment is never directly expressed to that individual. Truth be known, luck is involved in whether someone becomes a heart patient. However, it pertains directly to the luck involved in whether that individual chose to see a well-informed biological dentist earlier in life rather than just a procedure/tooth structure-oriented mainstream dentist who has no awareness of, or concern with, the dynamic physiological interplay between the mouth and the rest of the body.

Surprisingly, up to 80% of women who experience menopausal symptoms during the early menopausal years, including hot flushes, use natural supplements to help manage their symptoms. One of the most popular choices is the herb known as Black cohosh (Cimifuga racemose), which contains the active constituent’s triterpene glycosides and isopropanolic CR extract. Preparations of black cohosh are made from its roots and rhizomes (underground stems) and studies show that to be effective Black cohosh should be standardized to yield 2.5% triterpene glycosides.
