The Nord-Pas-de-Calais companies will be set up in various areas within the trade show, such as those devoted to meat products, fruit and vegetables, seafood, confectionery, biscuits and pastry, and grocery products. Some of the French companies will be on the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region’s stand (Aisle M, Booth 092), in the the Regions of France area (Hall 5A).
The Nord-Pas-de-Calais regional booth is the ideal meeting point for potential investors, buyers and visitors, and it will also give pride of place to the finalist and the winning products of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais Food Innovation Competition. On Tuesday 19 October, the Consumer Prize will be awarded on the Nord-Pas-de-Calais stand.
For the first time at SIAL, there will be an entire area devoted to beer, which is one of Nord-Pas-de-Calais’ major food-and-drink products. Four of the region’s breweries will present their speciality beers, which have been brewed according to traditional techniques passed down the generations.
The region’s breweries that will showcase their speciality beers at the French Brewers Booth (Hall 4, Booth S034) are the Castelain brewery, the Duyck brewery, the Saint-Germain brewery, and the Saint-Sylvestre brewery.
Castelain has three beer varieties. The Ch’ti’s (blonde, amber or white beer) subtle aroma is achieved through slow brewing. Castelain’s Maltesse variety is a strong, yet subtle luxury beer, and the Jade Organic beer has a pleasant grainy taste.

Duyck has been producing Jenlain beers for four generations. Jenlain’s unique taste results from the subtle blend of three malts and hops brewed in water pumped from an artesian well located right beneath the brewery.

Saint-Germain produces the Page 24 – an unpasteurised, unfiltered Bière de Garde, or ‘keeping beer’, which is traditionally brewed in the region. The beer comes in nine different varieties, and is a regular winner at the Concours Général de Paris.

Saint-Sylvestre produces the golden 3 Monts, with the taste of traditional ale that has been poured from a wooden keg. The company also produces the Gavroche, which is a red beer with a hearty, balanced flavour.

The Nord-Pas de Calais regional booth is supported by various regional institutional partners, who are keen to promote the region’s diversified food sector. These include the Regional Council; the Regional Food, Farming and Forests Authority; the Nord-Pas-de-Calais Chamber of Agriculture and its Promotional Committee; the Regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry; the Certia Interface centre; Aquimer and Nutrition Santé Longévité, the two clusters of competitiveness (with the latter focusing on nutrition and health); and, finally, the Food Industry Cluster of Excellence.
A comprehensive, English-language catalogue listing all the French exhibitors will be available at the Nord-Pas-de-Calais booth. The catalogue will also give an introduction to the region’s companies and their new products.
Nord-Pas-de-Calais is a national leader in terms of food and farming exports. Vegetable production reached €262m in turnover in 2008, over a surface area of 27,000 hectares. The region ranks first in France in the potato sector, producing 1.8 million tonnes. It is also a world leader in chicory production, with an output of 140,000 tonnes in 2008.
Located between London, Brussels and Paris, the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region benefits from a prime geographical location and an effective logistics network. This is demonstrated by its three major international harbours: Boulogne, a leading fishing port, as well as Dunkirk and Calais, which are among the top ports for freight transport in the country. The region’s rail network boasts 145 freight terminals, and its river network is the largest in France. Nord-Pas-de-Calais is also home to a number of successful SMEs and major companies, as well as a significant consumer base.

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.
We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
