What an amazing week in Paris! SIAL 2016 certainly didn't disappoint. Over 100 UK food and drink companies exhibited with us on the UK pavilion and despite the long days (our very own Sarah Briones clocked up nearly 120,000 steps during SIAL week), it was smiles all round.
The Rt Hon Andrea Leadsom MP, Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, visited the UK exhibitors at SIAL, touring the stand and taking the time to speak with companies, even posing for some shots in company attire!
UK pavilion exhibitors and invited international buyers attended a networking event at the stunning British Embassy in Paris, and benefited from our other events including the ever popular exhibitor welcome drink and in-lounge market briefings.
Our Exhibitor Lounge was busier than ever with UK exhibitors taking advantage of any spare time to come and relax for 5 minutes away from their stands with a cup of tea (British of course!).
There were lots of interesting cooking demos and innovative new products to try from the UK. We are sure trade visitors will have been spoilt for choice and hope that the buzz around the pavilion will make them remember the UK as an exciting and innovative place to do business!
