“I am very pleased with my visit to CFIA. At the exhibition, I attended two conferences that were very interesting: one on market trends, and the other on the consumption and use of algae. At the PAI Hall, I met our usual suppliers and discovered new ones that can meet some of our needs.”
Gaëlle Le Métayer, R&D department, COVI SAS
“I came to CFIA to discover innovations (machines, packaging, services, products), to meet our current suppliers (resolve a problem), and learn more about current and future issues (organic, long-lasting, fewer additives, more natural, etc.). I discovered some very interesting innovations and products: vegetarian burgers, additive-free chorizo, raw/crunchy vegetables with dressings, natural Firmalix antioxidants (powder made from acerola/onions/rosemary ...), sausages with algae casings, etc. I also joined the Innovation Tour, which was very good! “My visit was satisfactory, as I was able to find solutions to various work-related problems: the suppliers present at CFIA provided solutions, and I got to meet innovative companies and collect information on current and future food trends.”
Sandra Monney, Product Development Associate, Micarna (Switzerland)
“This is my first time visiting CFIA, and I am rather pleased. I was looking for solutions in the prevention/safety department. I also attended a very interesting conference on the topic of design with health and safety in mind.”
Delphine Le Vourch, Prevention Expert at Laita
“CFIA is a relevant exhibition in the overall food-processing sector and covers all the various aspects (process, packaging, ingredients ...). This exhibition is the place for top-notch networking. I was particularly interested in the ingredients section, where I made plenty of contacts. I enjoyed the events put on by the Centre Culinaire Contemporain and Work in Agro (I was able to take advantage of this service at the center of the exhibition). I attended a few conferences (Club PAI, CEVA, BPI France / Ania, Food-processing Factory of the Future, etc.), and found them to be terrific sources of actionable ideas.”
Olivier Tromeur, Engineer and food-processing R&D Project Manager
“CFIA enables us to see our current suppliers, meet new suppliers, and discover new technologies, packaging, and ingredients. This event is perfect for projects getting off the ground, as all potential suppliers are in one place. I’m satisfied with my visit this year as I was once again able to discover new products and ideas to further my company’s projects!”
Jean Pierre Canal, Technical Director, Fromagère du Livradois
“The initial goal of my trip to CFIA is to prepare the investments for 2018 by proposing improvements in quality, safety, and productivity within my department. I also visited in order to meet the suppliers who work with our company and touch base on progress and quotes.
Finally, I am also on the lookout for new ideas for products, packaging, and machinery. This year, I discovered new textures for packaging and new machinery (robots). I am absolutely satisfied with my visit!”
Agathe Frerou, Production and Packaging Manager, Lactalis
“At CFIA 2017, we were looking for new contacts for our line modernization projects. We met various companies that were able to meet our needs. We also got to explore new technologies that might interest us in the future. We are very pleased that our visit met the targets we had set.”
