Enjoy It’s from Europe!
The EU has become one of Canada’s largest trading partners with a consumer base of more than 500 million people, which is second to the U.S. With the implementation of CETA—Canada’s most ambitious free-trade agreement since NAFTA, has been ratified, there are opportunities for trade on the horizon.
The EU food and beverage producers at SIAL will have a variety of food products on display which could find their way to Canadian grocery shelves. These include fruits and vegetables, fresh and preserved meats, milk and dairy products and wines and spirits.
Schedule of EU Events
On May 2, there are a number of scheduled events at the fair. Enjoy EU-Canadian product pairings, cooking and mixology demonstrations and information sessions on the trade agreements and co-financed EU campaigns.
