Greetings from National Institute of Naturopathy, Pune.

NIN as a part of its activities is organizing “NATIONAL NATURAL FOOD FESTIVAL (NNFF) - 2018” at People’s plaza, Necklace Road, Hyderabad, 17th & 18th February 2018.

This year’s theme for NNFF is “Natural Foods”. According to Naturopathy, Food is medicine. With a commitment to popularize this concept, NIN is organizing ‘food festival’ at national level every year. Food is Vital. It is our strength and weakness at the same time. How to choose food which is nutritious, tasty, healthy and sustainable before it is consumed is a big question.

Our lifestyle and food choices play an important role in maintaining our health. Locally grown food substances will address many of the factors related to health and disease such as environmental factors, social factors which in turn provides sustenance to the farmers.

The National Natural Food Festival (NNFF) looks into all these aspects and also showcases various foods available in different regions of the country and also provides regional/local/traditional/food preparation. It is our pleasure to invite you to participate and exhibit natural healthy food items in this event.
