From 27 to 29 November 2017, SIPPO Tunisia and two high-level representatives from the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Tunis (CCITunis) and The Tunisian Canned Food Industries Group, participated in a study tour to Fi Europe, Ni & Expo FoodTec 2017, in Frankfurt, Germany
Organized by the Swiss Import Promotion Program in collaboration with the German Import Promotion Desk (IPD), the Tunisian associations took advantage from a guided visit to the Fi Europe, together with other associations and companies from Morocco and the Balkan region.
The Tunisian representatives had the opportunity to meet with potential German buyers of food ingredients (e.g. dates, spices, dried fruit, aromatic and medicinal plants…etc). Additionally, the study tour gave important insights into the necessity for “clean labels”, as well as the functioning of European wholesale markets, perishable centers at airports and supermarkets specialized on organic products.
