Thank you to our 2016 country of honour!

SIAL Canada was pleased that the United States was the 2016 country of honour. As Canada’s number-one supplier and customer, and thanks to its agri-food trade worth more than $45 trillion annually, the United States remains a major partner for Canada. Honouring the United States with the help of the USDA through their Taste US program also serves to open the North American market to the industry as a whole, especially local and international exhibitors. SIAL Canada offered on this occasion a presentation about market opportunities in the USA.

Stay tuned for the unveiling of the 2017 country of honour!
