An impressive 100 companies exhibited in the UK pavilions across a number of halls at SIAL in Paris under the GREAT Britain and Northern Ireland banner, organised by PS8. SIAL was the most important trade show this year and its reputation ensured that visitors from across the globe attended in large numbers. . A year in the planning, and many a long hour for the team, SIAL did not disappoint!
It was great to see so many new, creative companies exhibiting alongside household names such as Typhoo, Fox's Biscuits, Walkers Shortbread, Veetee Foods and Premier Foods. See what one French website thought of the UK's impressive innovation - click here to see
