Sustainable development

SIAL Paris makes a commitment to sustainable development

Now a baseline for economic activity, sustainable development is naturally a core element of SIAL especially since the agri-food industry is particularly concerned by its environmental, economic and social components.

60,000 meal equivalents collected at SIAL Paris 2014

Once again in 2014, the French Red Cross collected the foodstuffs contributed by exhibitors at the end of the exhibition. The Direction Départementale de l'Action Sociale (Department of Social Services) of Seine Saint-Denis organised this event in which 16 local Red Cross units and 5 partner associations took part.

The Red Cross operation took place under very satisfactory conditions, enabling a record-breaking 50 tonnes of food to be collected, namely the equivalent of 60,000 meals.
