SIRHA, the best foodservice trade show in Europe, takes place in Lyon January 21-25. It happens every two years. In 2015, It was bigger than we expected: there were 6 exhibition halls. The show was busy with many congested aisles.
Some of the notable categories by rough percentage of show:
30% food of many different types
10% bakery products
10% chocolate and other confectionery
15% furniture and restaurant / kitchen utensils
Strangely, there were only 4 exhibitors from North America, of which 2 were from the United States and 2 from Canada. The US exhibitors were US Pistachios and an frozen orange juice company from Florida.
Hope to see you there!
