SIAL in North America, SIAL Canada logo

SIAL Canada, organized with the ADA (Association des détaillants en alimentation), the Agri-Food Export Group of Quebec-Canada, is the only show supported by governments (Federal and Provincial) bringing together the retail, foodservice and equipment industries under one roof.

It alternates between Montreal and Toronto to cover all local and regional demand, not to mention the growing ethnic market. If your company is eager to sell food, benefit from the latest trade agreement (CETA), present packaging or process solutions or test the North American market, SIAL Canada is where you want to be!
