What’s hot at SIAL
Our attention will be particularly directed towards :
- innovative products
- new packagings (which will make for great pictures on this blog and our social media)
- new ingredients (for the first time a entire hall will be dedicated to new ingredients under the label “Alter’Native Food”)
A very interesting place to visit is the Future Lab where creative startups get the possibility to exhibit their products during one full day and meet visitors. No doubt we will spend time there.
