SIAL Paris 2022 continues with the theme "Own the change" launched in 2020, SIAL Paris starts this new edition under the motto of renewal and change. It highlights the need for a food transition on a planetary scale; the evolution of consumer habits, agricultural and processing methods more respectful of the environment and animals; the development of start-ups inventing new models; and product and service innovations that impact and will impact the coming years. In addition, he states the intention to provide industry professionals with the strong and weak signals of markets on an international scale, and to guide exhibitors and visitors towards economic success.

"We are all active participants in the change that is taking place, and we must understand the environmental, ethical, digital and demographic challenges facing the planet. It is incumbent upon us to rise to the challenges of food security and changing consumer habits. We must be mindful of our overall social responsibility, and we must collectively solve complex problems. For example, how to produce more while polluting less, or reduce the carbon footprint of our consumption. SIAL Paris offers time for debate and provides a great platform to raise these issues, find new drivers and anticipate future problems. Among its features are SIAL Insights - the SIAL Paris Think Tank, which encompasses exclusive studies on consumer expectations, product innovations and market and foodservice trends - and the SIAL Innovation Awards, which recognize the most notable innovations launched during the year preceding the event. "Own the Change also involves seeking out new talent and nurturing 'young shoots' who are ready to actively contribute to tomorrow's ecosystem."

Audrey Ashworth, new director of SIAL París.
