2017 SIAL Food Hub

Gary Berman, Vikram Vij, Salima Jivraj, Ravi Maharaj, B.K. Sethi, Chris Yu 

SIAL Food Hub and Canadian Grocer present: Authenticity in Multiculturalism - The multicultural food market is booming in Canada. Research shows it is expanding by about 14% annually, and 16% of Canadian consumers buy ethnic food weekly. That number jumps to 35% when you zero in on Ontario consumers. And about 70% of the growth in Canadian consumer spending will come from visible minorities.

 

Opening Keynote - A Transition in Taste - 1:00 – 2:00 p.m.
As if running two wildly popular Vancouver restaurants, starring on shows like Dragons’ Den and authoring best-selling cookbooks isn’t enough, chef Vikram Vij and his partner, Meeru, are also the creators of a growing product line of signature curries that are sold across Canada. How did this energetic celebrity chef make the transition to producing the Vij’s at home meal line? Join Vij for an inspiring talk on building success through authenticity and passion.

 

Panel – NEW Canadian Grocer Research - 2:30 – 3:30 p.m.

How are Canadian grocers capitalizing on the growth of the multicultural food market? New retailer research will provide important insights into where food retailers are winning. A panel of grocers, suppliers and industry experts will analyze the research results and discuss key trends in the multicultural space.

 

Closing Keynote - The Multicultural Consumer - 3:30 – 4:30 p.m.

By 2031, one third of all Canadians will be visible minorities. To capture greater market share, grocers need to start engaging multicultural consumers in a more relevant way. Learn how to boost your multicultural profitability through examples of those who have. In this live interactive session, you can share your biggest obstacles and Gary will help turn your problems into opportunities.

2016 SIAL Food Hub

Issues of costs in food service have never been so prevalent. This is why SIAL Canada is using its platform to welcome a panel of experts on the pressing topic of food-service costing as a way of increasing profitability.

Speakers will be invited to re-evaluate, analyse and establish new methods of cost calculation that will produce better price-setting and in so doing, allow businesses to increase their profitability.

At the conclusion of this gathering, a white paper consisting of panelists’ recommendations will be drafted and made available to all food-service professionals.
