Sri Lanka Export Development Board, the country’s apex body for promoting the export products and services, Sri Lanka Tea Board, and Coconut Development Authority are organising pavilions at SIAL International Food Fair to be held in Paris Nord Villepinte, France from October 21 to 25, 2018. Widely billed as the world’s largest food innovation exhibition, SIAL 2018 international Food Fair is estimated to draw in some 160, 000 enthusiastic visitors from 194 countries who will discover the latest and the most innovative products by some 7200 exhibitors from 105 countries.
These figures are strongly indicative of the huge potential SIAL International Food Fair holds for food & beverage exporters from Sri Lanka as well as from the other nations. That apart, there’s strong empirical evidence that SIAL has continuously been a major source of new export opportunities for Sri Lankan food & beverage exporters.
With agriculture playing a central role in the Sri Lankan economy, Sri Lanka has long been exporting a wide range of both fresh and processed food & beverage including tea, spices & allied products, virgin coconut oil and other coconut kernel-based products, confectionery, innovative health & wellness products and organic food products in fresh, processed, value added forms and has, deservedly, earned an enviable reputation for quality & authenticity.
The intrinsic quality of the raw material being used, fine taste of the products, state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies, and stringent quality standards maintained during the process of value addition are the principal drivers behind the ever-increasing demand for the food and beverage ‘produced / grown in Sri Lanka’.
Out of the hundreds of applicants who’ve demonstrated keen interest in participating in the 2018 SIAL International Food Fair, Sri Lanka Export Development in association with Sri Lanka Tea Board and Coconut Development Authority has selected 14 food and beverage exporters to be given the opportunity to exhibit at the EDB pavilion to be located in the Hall No. 4 Stall No. K 188 at the Fair.
