Come and be inspired

Good morning everyone and welcome to SIAL Paris 2022. Over the coming five days, the halls of Paris Nord Villepinte will become a source of inspiration for the global food industry. I would therefore like to invite everyone to take full advantage of our incredible programme.

Come and decipher the latest innovations and consumer trends at SIAL Innovation in Hall 6, a trendsetter which provides visitors with expert and up-to-date content on market developments from around the world.

This year, SIAL TV is becoming SIAL Talks (#LetsTalkFood), a must attend event, also located in Hall 6, where visitors can learn about the latest – and future – developments in the food sector, in an exciting and lively environment. Here, you can meet speakers from all over the world, who will be presenting Food 360 in conferences and round tables throughout the show.

Over in Hall 5B, be sure to stop by La Cuisine, hosting culinary demos, and SIAL Restaurant with menus concocted by world-renowned chefs.

The SIAL Start-up Village in Hall 6, in partnership with Startup Sesame and FoodTech, is presenting a wide range of new and innovative products which could prove to be the keys to creating solutions for the future.

Just around the corner, in Gallery Hall 6, dive right into the future food trends of 2030 at Future Lab, in partnership with Accenture and the French National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food, and Environment (INRAE). This forward-looking, high impact, immersive experience will address the major trends in the decade to come, from the earth to the table. It is focused on three areas including Agriculture 2030, Retail 2030 and Dining 2030. 

Also remember to explore our new platform CXMP, which serves as an extension of the SIAL event and gives visitors and exhibitors the chance to meet and collaborate all year round. But most importantly, I would simply invite you to explore the halls, feast your eyes on the most innovative products and learn from producers, importers, buyers, retailers, media specialists and independent associations from all over the world, who have been meeting at SIAL every two years since 1964.

So thank you all for coming and I look forward to seeing you on the trade show floor.
