As we step into the second quarter of 2024, it's the perfect time to reflect on the vibrant experiences and enriching connections we've made in the first few months of the year. At KULA, we're all about connection and innovation. That's why we love attending industry tradeshows and expos! It's a fantastic opportunity to showcase our products, connect with fellow food enthusiasts, and learn about the latest trends.

This past quarter, we've been busy bees, buzzing from one exciting event to the next. Let's take a quick trip down memory lane and see what we've been up to!

Q1 Tradeshow Round-Up:

South by Southwest (SXSW) 2024 - Austin, TX (March): We were honoured to have our Founder, Asha, participate as a panelist in the "Women Leading The Future Of Food Systems" panel at Tech Nourish during SXSW 2024. This event, held at Canada House, brought together female pioneers dedicated to shaping the future of food systems. Asha, alongside other inspiring women, shared their journeys and insights, emphasizing the importance of mentorship and innovation in creating a more sustainable future. 

A huge shout out and thank you to SFU for inviting KULA and hosting such a not groundbreaking event– a testament to the university's unwavering commitment to fostering groundbreaking ideas and supporting women who are making a positive impact on the world. We're incredibly proud of Asha and her contributions to this important conversation.

CHFA West - Vancouver, CA (April 4-5): We weren't newbies at CHFA West this year, but the excitement never fades! This premier natural health and organic products tradeshow in Canada remains a highlight of our event calendar. This year, we were thrilled to be located within the UNFI Pavillion, putting us right in the heart of the action. It's a fantastic opportunity to reconnect with familiar faces – industry leaders, retailers, and fellow passionate innovators in the health and wellness space like our friends at Cha’s Organics and Planted Expo – and forge new connections that fuel our growth. We left CHFA West inspired by the collective energy and commitment to creating a healthier tomorrow.


Grocery and Specialty Food West - Vancouver, CA (April 22-23): Following our inspiring experience at CHFA West, we continued cultivating connections in Vancouver by participating in Grocery and Specialty Food West. This event, held right here in our hometown, provided fertile ground to deepen relationships with local retailers and distributors. We were proud to be situated within the BuyBC Pavilion, surrounded by other passionate British Columbian brands. BuyBC champions local businesses like KULA, and their support shines a spotlight on the high-quality, sustainable food and beverage options we're committed to providing.

At the show, we showcased our offerings and sparked exciting conversations that sprouted new possibilities for collaboration. Stay tuned for future announcements that will have you watering at the mouth!
