SIAL Canada Montreal

15. - 17. May 2024 | International trade fair for food

The SIAL Canada is a significant international trade fair for food, beverages, and gastronomy, held annually alternating between the Canadian cities of Montreal and Toronto. Since its founding in 2001, it has evolved into the most important event for the agricultural and food industry in Canada. The fair is organized by the Comexposium Group, a globally leading organizer of trade fairs and conferences. The topics of SIAL Canada are diverse and include food, beverages, food technology, packaging, gastronomy, and retail, among others.

A particular focus is on innovation, sustainability, and international collaboration in the food industry. Food manufacturers, traders, importers, wholesalers, and retailers, as well as representatives of institutional and commercial gastronomy, gather here under one roof to experience the latest ethnic or regional products, sophisticated gourmet products, and the most innovative solutions in the industry live. Furthermore, SIAL Canada serves as a gateway to the Canadian market and is simultaneously the industry platform for product launches. It impresses with a strong focus on local exhibitors and unique international offers. The accompanying conference covers the exchange of knowledge and information on current topics, trends, and future prospects of the industry. Some of the highlights of SIAL Canada are the various competitions with award ceremonies that take place during the fair. These include the SIAL Innovation competition, which honors the most innovative food and beverage products, the SIAL Olive d'Or, which awards the best olive oils from around the world, and the International Cheese Competition, dedicated to the cheese industry and recognizing the best cheese varieties from various countries. These competitions are essential highlights of SIAL Canada, as they promote innovation and quality in the food industry and facilitate exchange between experts and companies.

The SIAL Canada will take place on 3 days from Wednesday, 15. May to Friday, 17. May 2024 in Montreal.
