Epta France at NatExpo for tomorrow’s bio: new concepts to promote organic food

Epta France is participating in NATEXPO, a meeting for all professionals of the bio sector, from 20 to 22 October at the Nord Villepinte exhibition centre of Paris, with the Costan, Bonnet Névé and Eurocryor brands (Stand G-140). The 2019 edition of the only French B2B trade fair dedicated to the bio sector is already showing signs of being a record-breaker, with the participation of more than 1,000 exhibitors representing 20 countries and more than 15,000 visitors expected. This reflects the vitality of the sector, which is already experiencing unprecedented growth in France, where purchases of bio food products reached €9.7 billion in 2018, +15% compared to 2017.

NATEXPO is an opportunity for Epta France, the only producer of commercial refrigeration solutions in the Hexagon, to present the selection of cabinets branded Costan and Bonnet Névé dedicated to bio products and natural products. The vertical Tango Bio/MultiFresh Bio and Valzer Bio/MultiFreeze Bio are technological eco-friendly solutions that become an excellent promotional tool inside stores selling bio-food, organic and vegan food. Characterised by elegant and compact design and all glass doors, they amaze for the prestigious wood-like finishes of the exteriors and the black colour of the interiors, designed to perfectly adapt to the layout and to the typical style of these stores. Furthermore, thanks to the choice of R290 propane as natural refrigerant, these cabinets merge performance and environmental sustainability.

Tango Bio/MultiFresh Bio and Valzer Bio/MultiFreeze Bio are ideal to complete the SlimFit Costan and MultiCity Bonnet Névé. The range is composed of a large selection of compact vertical and semi-vertical counters, for fresh and frozen products, which merge the aesthetics of remote solutions, with the flexibility of cabinets with an incorporated condensing unit, to stylishly furnish the entire self-service area from small stores, mini markets and convenience stores, to bio corners in supermarkets and hypermarkets.

Season, the special set-up of GranVista Next Costan and SkyView Plus Bonnet Névé of the GranFit and SkyEffect ranges, will also be presented. It is a unique merchandising solution, designed to guarantee a spectacular presentation. GranVista Season and SkyView Season, come, for example, in the Value version to position fruit and vegetables in crates and in the Advance version, to make the first fruits stand out on half-moon shaped shelves.

Worthy of note at the stand is also CrossOver Scene of Eurocryor, a combined cabinet that associates a self-service area for pre­-packed products with a classic serve-over unit for assisted sale, ideal for small sales areas or to create themed corners with a view to cross-merchandising.

Finally, to respond effectively to the requests of a market that is increasingly directed at omnichannel retail, Epta offers #EPTABricks, innovative refrigerated lockers connected to the web that provide consumers with a 24-hour collection point for fresh, frozen and dry products purchased on the websites of Supermarket chains. A sustainable solution that contributes to reducing the carbon footprint, with the elimination of home deliveries and the use of R290, which boasts a low GWP.
