The exhibition

The new meeting place for food manufacturers

For the very first time ever, the CFIA (Carrefour des Fournisseurs de l’Industrie Agroalimentaire) exhibition is coming to Toulouse and will be held at the MEETT between the 20th and the 22nd of September, 2022. It intends to position itself as THE exhibition for all companies in the food-processing sector in the southwest of France.

Since its first edition, it has been the largest gathering of processed food suppliers in the southwest region: 300 exhibitors and ranges targeted at all roles in a factory. With more than 10,000 m² of exhibition space, look for the Ingredients & Intermediate Food Products, the Equipment & Processes, and the Packaging & Handling sectors.

The exhibition will be held jointly with SEPEM Industries Toulouse,a grouping of regional manufacturing exhibitions in several regions, to create the unmissable manufacturing event of the autumn.

Why Toulouse?

CFIA has been present in Brittany since establishing itself as an unmissable event in 1997. It is now moving to TOULOUSE, in the Occitanie region in the southwest of France.
A region where the food-processing sector is one of the main employers.

CFIA Toulouse was initially developed to provide local VSEs/SMEs, mid-caps, and large companies with a nearby exhibition that could meet their needs!

However, it also aims to become a recurring fixture in the calendars of companies in the food-processing sector across the land.
