Mumbai/New Delhi, Aug.6 (ANI-Newsvoir): Indian participation at SIAL Paris 2016, the world's leading Food and Beverage Exhibition, is set to break all records from 16th to 20th October in Paris Nord Villepinte.

Over 190 Indian exporters will be showcasing Food and Beverage products at the exhibition, with almost 150 exporters participating under the India pavilion organised by the India Trade Promotion Organisation (ITPO).

India will be amongst leading participations from Asia, alongside China, Korea and Japan. Moreover over 1,500 Indian visitors, including a state-level delegation from Manipur, are expected to visit the exhibition to discover the latest in international food and beverage trends.

"The considerable increase in size of India's participation is an indicator of growth of the food processing industry and its allied sectors. The Indian food processing industry accounts for nine per cent of the manufacturing GDP of the country and I compliment the large contingent of Indian companies, including SMEs for featuring in India's export scenario" commented Mr. L.C.Goyal, IAS, Chairman and Managing Director of ITPO.

Indeed the 2016 SIAL session is also set to be the largest in the exhibition's fifty year history 104 countries have now confirmed their presence, and over 160,000 professionals from around the world are expected to attend the five-day show.

"I invite the business fraternity of France as well as neighbouring European countries to explore the vast opportunities that India offers. The bilateral ties of both the countries have consistently expanded over the years and it is hoped that India's participation in the event will be meaningful in further consolidating trade relations between the two countries," further added Mr. L.C.Goyal, IAS, Chairman and Managing Director of ITPO.

This year's SIAL Paris coincides with the United Nations' World Food Day. Representatives of the entire global food industry will therefore be in Paris on October 16, ready to find and share the solutions required to feed the world for the next 30 years. Arranged into food sectors and geographical regions, SIAL's one-of-a-kind layout lets visitors customize their experience, and explore the exhibition according to their own particular needs - something that no other fair can offer to such a wide-ranging public.

"All eyes will be focused on Paris in October 2016," says Nicolas Trentesaux (SIAL Network Director). "The food industry is one of the most dynamic industries globally. By discovering new trends and business opportunities, participants will find the tools they need to achieve their growth and expansion objectives. Over 2,500 new products will be presented at the SIAL Innovation feature this year, inspiring the food and beverage industry even more than ever."

India's record-breaking participation at SIAL 2016 is all set to provide the Indian Food and Beverage industry with new opportunities for growth and expansion from 16th to 20th October, 2016 in Paris. (ANI-Newsvoir)
