SIAL China Shanghai

| International trade fair for food

Since its inception in 2000, SIAL China has been a leading international trade fair for food and beverages, held annually at the Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC). The name SIAL stands for "Salon International De L'Alimentation", which translates to "International Food Exhibition." The fair is organized by Comexposium, a global operator of trade shows and conferences..

The main themes of SIAL China cover a wide spectrum of the food and beverage industry, including baby food, organic and wellness products, dairy products, non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages, meat, poultry, sausages, seafood, legumes, and grains. This diversity reflects the fair's central role as a platform for innovation and trends in the food industry.

At SIAL China, food manufacturers, traders, importers, wholesalers, and retailers, as well as representatives of institutional and commercial gastronomy, present and discover the latest products and services. This makes the fair an important gateway to the Chinese market and a significant platform for international companies looking to engage in this dynamic environment.

The fair is distinguished by its numerous competitions and award ceremonies, which honor outstanding innovations in the food and beverage industry. Highlights include the SIAL Innovation Competition, the SIAL Chic and Tea Contest, and the SIAL Cup Barista Challenge. These events promote quality and innovation and serve as a platform for the exchange between professionals and companies.

SIAL China is part of a global series of SIAL fairs held in various international cities and plays a key role in the global food industry. Exhibitors and visitors come from various sectors, including food production, gastronomy, and trade.

The Shanghai New International Expo Center, the venue for SIAL China, is centrally located and easily accessible. It offers modern facilities and excellent infrastructure, making it ideal for events of this magnitude and significance. The easy accessibility of the SNIEC further contributes to the fair's attractiveness, both for local and international participants.

The SIAL China takes place annually, and therefore for the 21st time previsibly in May 2025 in Shanghai.
