SIAL Paris

Paris the capital of planet food

Published on - updated on

From 16th to 20th October 2016, all eyes in the food world will be on Paris. The event will take place in a particularly positive climate for the sector, with strong demographic growth (world population of 9 billion by 2050), an increase in middle classes and a westernisation of needs in most of the world's regions.

Today, the food industry is one of the most dynamic in the majority of G20 countries. Building on new growth drivers and rising to the challenges on the road ahead, everyone in the food industry will find a launch pad for their ambitions in Paris. Extras on site? A unique platform to test the market, launch a product, raise awareness or meet peers, and also many services and a 360° product offer. Over 5 days, the largest global food community will have access to the broadest selection: from ingredients to vegetables, from wines & spirits to alcohol-free beverages, from seafood products to meat, gourmet foods, dairy and deli products and much, much more. This diversity will also be reflected in the profile of exhibitors and visitors. Over 70% of visitors will come from overseas, and up to 85% of exhibitors (for a total of 105 countries represented). So start getting ready today! SIAL Paris will help you see further, broadening your horizon.

New Talents of Gastronomy

For the first time, SIAL Paris will be celebrating New Talents of Gastronomy / Les Espoirs de la Gastronomy. Open to chefs, sommeliers and front of house staff, this competition is for up-and-coming talents from all over France.

The recipe to inspire you

In 2016, SIAL Paris wants to feed everyone's inspiration - and we mean everyone! How? By providing a number of markers and foods for thought, by showcasing product innovation in all its guises and also by projecting visitors and exhibitors directly into the future of world food.

At the heart of these projections lies the question on everyone's lips: how can we conciliate the pleasure expectations and health requirements of over 9 billion people by 2050, whilst protecting our planet and ensuring sustainable development for everyone? To find suitable answers to these huge issues, in 2016 SIAL Paris is hosting a series of conferences and TV programmes around the theme of revolution, with 5 key directions: products, how to buy, how to process, how to eat and how to take action.
