Why does the exhibition take place at the heart of Brittany in France?

Food processing remains the region’s largest economic engine: Brittany is the #1 agricultural region in France and the #1 industrial sector in terms of turnover, the number of companies, and employment (43% of companies, and one third of manufacturing jobs).

In France, the Grand Ouest region receives the most investment, making it a major European hub.

Globally, the food-processing sector is the top French manufacturing sector, with 429,079 direct jobs (+4,491 more jobs than in 2016) and a turnover of €180 billion (+3.9% increase over 2016). (Sources: Synagri - Ania)

Processing plays a leading role, thanks to new trends, advanced technologies, and constant adaptation to current standards. The CFIA plays a key role in this dynamic, by bringing together all the stakeholders and presenting solutions related to all the stages of the food-processing chain.

The 23rd edition will be full of innovations!

  • 1,600 suppliers, including 150 first-timers, to offer even more innovative solutions
