Founder of Best of Raw Laura Chiraya Fox announces the birth of the Raw Living Expo, which has been created to fill an underserved niche, the raw foods movement and the raw foods packaged goods industry, with a dedicated 3-day event showcasing, honoring and celebrating the key people, places, products, media and eco-initiatives in this “fastest growing” foods industry.

Called affectionately “The Sustainable Feast,” the raw foods lifestyle not only assists people in increasing health and raising their conscious awareness, but also has a direct impact on the ecology of the planet. “By encouraging humanity to add more raw organic plant foods to the diet, we are doing our part in decreasing our eco-footprint as well as increasing the health of people around the world,” says Fox.

To add to the raw fun, Hilton Sedona Resort & Spa Chef Salvatore will be trained to prepare delicious gourmet raw foods by celebrity raw chefs Elaina Love, Chef BeLive and Nomi Shannon, so that he can prepare a sumptuous raw vegan dinner that will be celebrated by raw foodists attending the black-tie optional Best of Raw Awards Gala Dinner, which takes place on the opening evening of the Expo. Best of Raw unveils “peer-to-peer” industry awards which will be announced at the Gala Dinner, to particularly honor the achievements and initiatives of raw foods industry leaders. The next day, Saturday, February 23rd, the 5th Annual Best of Raw Online Awards will be announced throughout the day, with the highest profile awards being announced Saturday evening.
