“I was very pleased with this exhibition, and my diary is full. I met dozens of suppliers, including ones we will keep in touch with. I also identified two innovations that might interest our R&D department. I was pleasantly surprised with the number of suppliers attending CFIA I was able to optimize my visit, work efficiently, and really achieve my initial goals.”
Philippe Gaillou, Technical Purchasing Manager – NESTLE PURINA PETCARE for Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa
“I was able to discover the latest trends, especially regarding ingredients: fibers, proteins, naturalness... Everything went smoothly. The floor plan and the preliminary information received by email help to prepare ahead of time. It was a very profitable day!”
Cécile Roudaut, R&D – Process – COINTREAU
“The things I expect from CFIA are innovations, contract negotiations, and alternative product and supplier options. My visit was satisfactory on those counts.”
Thomas Tafti, Investment & New Works – LUSTUCRU RIVOIRE & CARRET
“My goals in visiting CFIA were to update my technical knowledge about new products on the market (tools, materials, equipment...) and to find solutions to issues affecting processes in my unit (safety, performance, precision...). I also wanted to attend the conference on packaging. I found it very interesting, especially when it covered technologies, materials, recycling, and RFID.”
Aurélie Le Coroller, Manufacturing/Packaging Manager – FLEURY MICHON
“The exhibition’s close location and the ease of doing business there are the reasons I visit CFIA, and I am always satisfied.”
Pierre Rachet, Technological Packaging Manager – FROMAGERIES BEL PRODUCTION France
“I spend two days at the exhibition each year... I look for innovations in ingredients, and I also search for existing products that fit specific needs, which is very convenient and saves me lots of time.”
Franck Dutertre, R&D Project Manager – GASTRONOME
“I regularly attend events in Paris, Lyon, or Milan, but this was my first time at CFIA, and I met new suppliers who are not at other exhibitions. The fact that CFIA is held early in the year also helps focus discussions on the projects that will be implemented in the current year...”
Blaise Pascal, New Construction and Energy Manager, ALPINA SAVOIE
“In addition to maintaining professional networks, CFIA facilitates meetings with our suppliers and helps us keep up with processes and ingredients. The 2016 edition enabled me to reach the goals I had!”
David Le Gall, Application Group Manager – DAVIGEL
“There were a lot of innovations in processes (cleaning and equipment) that met our needs... I am very satisfied with the many contacts made today! This is a very well-rounded exhibition with lots of choice and the opportunity to meet our suppliers and discuss future projects. I recommend attending the 2017 edition... Congratulations to the CFIA team, and I look forward to meeting you again next year!”
Philippe Léonard, Packaging Manufacturing Foreman – Tereos Sucre France
“This exhibition has become a must, and this year, there were even more ingredient exhibitors. The manageable size makes it possible to meet all contacts in a single day. Although the location is awkward for companies from the south like us, this exhibition is a real benchmark and well worth the effort. I am absolutely satisfied with my visit and with the many contacts I made, both in terms of ingredients and packaging.”
Thierry Loubet, Product R&D Manager – Raynal et Roquelaure
“I enjoy meeting professionals from the health and laboratory sectors, as well as quality and safety. I am happy with my day at CFIA. I got to attend interesting conferences like every year. This exhibition met all the expectations that I had set for myself. See you next year for a new edition!”
