Description

Join this mission to France focused on finding export opportunities for your organic and free-from food and drink products and cosmetics …

This 3½ day visit includes:

  • A networking event at the British Ambassador’s Residence with selected buyers and the chance to pitch to showcase your products there

  • A visit to Natexpo - the trade show for organic and eco-friendly products and France’s premier B2B event for this sector

  • A market briefing and advice from a specialist consultancy on what’s trending, how the market is structured and how to sell in France

  • A guided tour of relevant specialist stores from supermarkets to small independents

  • Advice on doing business in and with France covering the dos and don’ts.

  • A chance to share experience with similar West Midlands businesses.

  • Return flights from Birmingham to Paris and three night’s hotel accommodation. Support from a specialist ITA throughout

Why France?

  • France is the second largest consumer market in Europe for organic products after Germany

  • Consumption of organic products in 2016 was up nearly 22% on 2015, bringing in €7.1B, with the number of products up by 12%. Household consumption accounts for €6.7 billion of the market

  • 89% of French consumers bought organic food in 2016 largely from big supermarkets and specialist shops

  • 69% eat organic food at least once a month – 27% at least once a week

  • Mintel says there is a wider shift towards free-from foods – not just gluten free, which has seen double digit growth for most of the last decade, but also dairy and meat-free among younger consumers under 40

Please note: This mission is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund. Acceptance will be subject to completion of SME International Growth Project enrolment and application process to confirm ERDF eligibility.

Cost: Price per delegate £200 + VAT
