Establishing contacts to the right buyers
With 7,020 companies from more than 109 countries, the SIAL is one of the largest international marketplace for foodservice professionals. The focus of SIAL Paris/France is innovation in nutrition, design, retail, food service and ingredients.
At the 2018 event, the IPD will again present new, carefully selected and tested export companies from different partner countries like Egypt, Ethiopia, Colombia, Peru, Kyrgystan and Tunisia.
These exporters will have the opportunity to display their products, ranging from freeze-dried fruit, pulps and tea from Colombia, dried fruits and berries from Kyrgyzsan, to dates, herbs and spices from Egypt. Ethiopian companies will offer an exceptional range of oils made of black cumin, sesame or eucalyptus.
All exporters participating in the IPD programme will be well prepared for this event. Thus ensuring they are equipped with the required certificates for the European market and are familiar with the demands of the German trade sector.
Immediately before and during the fair the IPD will offer practical support for the exhibition, including e.g. compilation of current market information, guidance on stand decoration, sales training for successful communication with potential customers.
In particular, the IPD provides support through targeted matchmaking, identifying suitable German importers and arranging initial contacts before the fair begins, accompanying the b2b meetings during the event and supporting the follow-up after the fair is over.
