  Snapshot of the the 9th edition of the French Wine Trade Show :   With about 70 professional visitors, the event was a true success and all parties present welcomed the return of this Irish wine specialists’ “must attend” event. Among the visitors, 61 importers from 47 Irish importing companies and 5 journalists were present. Several distributors have already placed orders for French Wines they tasted at the event and we expect that other ongoing negotiations will result in strong commercial partnerships very quickly.   Please find  here more pictures of the event.

“France Viande Export”, a new hub for the promotion of French meat

Elisabeth Fosso - 10-déc.-2015 10:46:40
  On October 12 th , the French Department of Agriculture launched the French Meat Export hub as a response to the current crisis in the livestock sector. This initiative aims at promoting French meat exports and creating new market opportunities for French producers. In the meantime, the government also negotiated the lifting of the Malaysian, Saudi Arabian, Singaporean, Vietnamese and South African embargoes on French beef. Indeed, Asian and Middle East markets represent worthwhile prospects since the total animal protein intake of European consumers is forecasted to decline. France Meat Export currently gathers 32 companies that produce beef and pig meat. The hub ensures collaboration between small and medium enterprises thanks to a better access to useful information. It also increases their competitiveness by enabling them to tender for contracts. Supported by the Departments of Foreign Affairs, Economy and Agriculture as well as embassies and Business France, the hub will help companies defend the French origin of their meat during international trade shows.           Sources :,   © Terra-net Média

Who’s Next / Première Classe sees an increase in visitors

Vimla Hunt - 07-sept.-2015 17:31:23
The Whos Next/Première Classe trade fair(s) at Paris Porte de Versailles took place this weekend but it isnt over yet. Monday marks the last day for this major trade show. A small round-up so far. According to the organisers, the number of visitors over the first two days, Friday and Saturday, was up 17%.   Compared to July 2014, the numbers were down, but, with everything that has been happening in the financial world, things are not as glum as they seem. According to WSN, the numbers are at where they were in September 2011. And the return to September, after a few seasons in July, has not affected the foreign contingency. For the number of exhibitors, there was a significant offering for the European continent, of Belgians, Swiss and Germans.   Regarding the change of date, some of the exhibitors have said that it has thrown them off. They regret the stability of the what they have been used to. "We have spent a lot of time with the French retailers so that they start in July," says Steeve Fraehring, at Sarah Pacini, "most of our orders come in in July."

Bijorhca gets ready for September

Vimla Hunt - 03-sept.-2015 13:02:26
The up-coming edition of the international fine, fashion jewellery and watches show will be held from 4th to 7th September at Pavilion 5 of the Porte de Versailles exhibition centre in Paris, in synergy with the Whos Next show, back again in September. Bijorhca is set to welcome nearly 550 brands, of which about one hundred are new exhibitors. As always the show comprises four exhibition areas: Elements, for jewellery suppliers, Cream, for the edgier labels, fashion jewellery, which brings together 280 brands and which, for the first time, will feature a Precious Village, reserved to silver and vermeil 4 m² booths, and fine jewellery (30% of exhibitors), occupying the very first section of the show, on the first floor. The watches area grows, numbering about a dozen brands, highlighted by the return of Ice Watch, featuring a 54 m² booth. The trend areas, stage-designed by Elizabeth Leriche and featuring Trends for fashion jewellery and Precious Gallery for fine jewellery, will be as ever the visitors main stops. Bijorhca will once more present a series of talks centred around themes such as how to generate well-being inside the shop. Also notable is the presence for the first time of an anti-counterfeit office, offering advice and orientation on the subject of intellectual property rights. In France, in 2014, the jewellery and watches market amounted to €5.1 billion. The figure represents a slight decrease, -1%, while the number of retail outlets too has decreased, from 6,600 in 2013 to 6,200 in 2014.
