Exhibition overview & interesting events
Because we value personal contact with customers and are happy to give our products to those interested, we take part in around 10 organic / vegan trade fairs or other special events in Switzerland every year.
Trade fairs & events where we can be found soon:
From Thursday 21st to Sunday 24th September will take place in hall 622, the new event location the 23rd Gourmesse will take place directly at Zurich-Oerlikon train station. The large range of the 161 exhibitors includes not only wines and spirits, but also oils, spices, coffee, many sweets and now premium superfoods from SamaraNatura.
After a very successful premiere in 2016 with 70 exhibitors and over 12,000 visitors in Hall 7 (top floor), VeggieWorld will take place for the second time this year during the first three Züspa days (Friday September 29th to Sunday October 1st ) in the top exhibition hall. The organizers are again working with Swissveg as an experienced partner.
The next Slow Food Market for traditionally produced foods and delicacies will take place from Friday 10th to Sunday 12th November 2017 at Messe Zürich.

For us, nutrition does not simply mean selling healthy foods and nutritional supplements. Rather, we would like to inform you about current events, promote exchange and, if possible, personally take part in the many events. Below is a small overview:
n the summer of 2007 the idea for SamaraNatura took on more concrete forms. We started selling our products at fairs and markets. They were special superfoods, which are hardly known in Switzerland, such as raw cocoa (beans, splinters, butter and powder), maca, suma and hemp seeds and other raw food quality from all over the world as well as own creations. Almost at the same time in October 2007, Ilanta founded the first raw food meetup in Switzerland to share her interest with other people. The first raw food meetings took place in our house and meanwhile many people have come together regularly at the raw food meetings.
It is Urs and Rita Hochstrasser's intention to help people who are interested in a higher quality of life, to bring joy with healthy food, with the aim of expanding their awareness. If you value your health, if you want to do something actively for animal welfare, if you care about the environment, if you want to expand your awareness beyond your own wellbeing, if you have compassion and a sense of responsibility, vegan raw food is spot on. In their seminars they show how this works. In the rock cellar of the Center for Raw Food in Effingen, the Hochstrassers have been producing high-quality, cooled-pressed oils from organic seeds for a few years now. We can recommend the exciting and free oil lecture (including a delicious raw food aperitif) to all interested parties. For desserts, Urs and Rita Hochstrasser like to use our carob powder, which, like the peeled hemp seeds, can be bought in the shop.
Daniela and Werner Schmid offer in their raw food huesli in Freienstein (between Bülach and Flaach) in addition to workshops and many raw food events, self-produced raw food products such as mueslis, pizza bases and pralines. Werner also sells the products every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the weekly market in Bülach. By the way, with us you will find the very delicious raw food muesli, which Daniela produces in elaborate handicraft.
The convinced raw foodist Cédric Wüthrich produces high-quality vegetable edible oils, nut & seed sauces and crackers in a converted fire department area in Bern. He also runs delicious events and courses on a regular basis. By the way, our Swiss organic spelled grass powder can be bought at Cédric. In the SamaraNatura Shop we have a small selection of fine nut butters and raw vegetable oils, which, by the way, are also ideal as gifts.
