Retail focus: Beauty & Nature


In the first of ECM’s new retail focus articles, Annemarie Kruse explores German organic perfumery chain Beauty & Nature

Organic C&T has a long tradition in Germany – it is the biggest organic market in the EU – and certified organic products are available in every retail channel, including discounters, drugstores, supermarkets, department stores and speciality retailers.

Leipzig has the biggest Beauty & Nature store, with a retail area of 600sqm extending over two floors.
