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.

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
