The SIAL Canada International Food Show Will Be Back at Montreal’s Palais des Congrès For Its 100% In-Person 19th Edition!

After more than 20 months of the pandemic, SIAL Canada is pleased to be back in person and return to its status as Canada’s only international agri-food tradeshow; the exhibition continues to be an essential stop for any industry player looking to meet others and grow their business.

For three days, the 2022 edition of SIAL Canada will have all eyes on Montreal with more than 800 exhibitors from all over Canada and the world, in 200,000 ft2 of exhibition space, ready to meet the more than 20,000 decision-makers there from all over North America!

A tradeshow that’s constantly adapting

The 2022 edition is full of changes, this year, the equipment section of SET Canada will makes way for two new sectors that are growing and are aligned with industry demand: SIAL GROCERANT— a sector that’s exclusive to North America and is dedicated to transforming and fusing the worlds of retail and food service (and vice versa), and SIAL PACKAGING—a space aimed at responding to developments within the packaging sector and in related logistics.

An event featuring high-level content!

Every year, SIAL Canada allows participants to discover the challenges of tomorrow through its series of conferences led by renowned industry personalities. The program of 30 or so conferences this year includes: the food of the future, new food trends and innovations, globalization, the challenges of supply and demand management, geographical indications, culinary tourism, and much more…

The startup village: A Canadian exclusive

The start-up village is the only one of its kind in Canada and was launched in 2019 during SIAL Toronto, bringing together more than 20 burgeoning food businesses. These companies will try to promote their products and services during a pitch competition, to earn awards through their innovations in technology, sustainable development, and nutrition, among others.

The international cheese competition is back in 2022!

Building on its success in 2019 in Toronto, which featured 229 cheeses from 9 countries, SIAL Canada welcomes everyone in April 2022 for the second edition of the international cheese competition.

A booming beverage sector

A first this year is the launching of a microbrewery village showcasing Quebec and Canadian craft-beer know-how! Inspire Drink, a hosted event dedicated to drinks of all types and to mixology, will be back.

The importance of the local market

The local market is more important than ever, with over 400 Canadian companies being represented. With pavilions from every Canadian province, SIAL Canada has become the only platform for everything Canada has to offer.

SIAL Canada: A platform for relaunching food service

On the floor, thousands of new products and pieces of equipment grounded in the latest trends will be presented! La Cuisine by SIAL will meet the needs of restaurateurs and retailers through two days of programming grounded in the theme of “Sous-Vide Food Service.”

SoSIAL commitment

SIAL Canada’s SoSIAL program will continue to commit itself to social causes by, among other things, taking part in recovering food on behalf of charities that redistribute it to those in need. In addition, for each entrance ticket that is purchased, SIAL Canada will provide $5 to Moisson Montréal, a community organization that serves as a food bank for the Island of Montreal.

International opportunities

SIAL Canada is a world of products to discover! Canada’s shifting demographics, coupled with growing consumer demand for ethnic and specialty products, explains why so many countries will be showcasing their products from overseas.
