Find out about the different paths and themes proposed by our team of experts for the 2022 edition of SIAL Paris.

Intermediate Food Products tour - given by Nutrimarketing

Food-processing industries have become assemblers: they benefit from the expertise of IFP, Intermediate Food Products (ingredients and semi-finished products), which enable them to formulate sophisticated, tasty, and functional recipes in line with consumer trends. By offering increasingly sophisticated products and services, IFP are the first to respond to consumer expectations: revegetation, local ingredients that are healthier, more natural, and coming from upcycling and sustainable development.  

Consumer Products tour - given by Nutrimarketing

For years, food innovation has leaned on five pillars: practicality, health, pleasure, naturalness, and sustainable development. Those trends remain unavoidable despite evolutions through time, demographic, economic, technological, and climatic mutations. Covid-19, the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, inflation, and climatic contingencies disrupt exchanges and therefore affect consumer behavior.

During this tour, our experts talked about nutrition’s revegetation, holistic health for body and mind, enjoyment and comfort, and sustainable development (upcycling, packaging, decarbonization, animal welfare, etc.)

Trends and Innovations tour - given by ProtéinesXTC

The team of experts led by Xavier Terlet has selected more than 400 innovations among more than 2000 new products presented by exhibitors. These new products offer new benefits for a demanding consumer who believes in "good for me, good for my health, good for my planet." Benefits that can be expressed in terms of recipe, manufacturing process, packaging, or even simple, innovative positioning. It is, therefore a real antechamber to the show that allowed you to fully grasp the trends and discover the highlights of this SIAL Paris 2022..

Catering and Food Service tour - given by Gourmetise 

The restaurant industry is often the playground of innovation before its deployment to the general public. Gourmetise is a product and talent scout, guiding you to the discovery of emerging trends that food actors have dedicated to the restaurant industry. Through flavors, textures, innovative packaging, or a global concept still in its infancy, you were able to project ideas to be included in your next annual calendars that your customers and your operational teams will quickly adopt.
