The Government of Meghalaya has partnered with the world’s number one food innovation network, SIAL India, for its event at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi from tomorrow to December 11.
The Meghalaya Pavilion exhibitors at the event includes homegrown brands like naKper, CountrySpices, Dalade, BEE Natural, Gabil Agro Industries, Meg Spice, MEG Tea and many more.
The show, which is one of its first kinds in India in the B2B space, is jointly organised by InterAds Exhibitions, Comexposium and Vinexposium.
Chief Minister of Meghalaya, Conrad Sangma, will inaugurate the inaugural session as chief guest tomorrow.
He will also announce the dates for the North East Food Show 2022, North-East’s biggest food expo in association with SIAL.
The event will encompass both wine and spirits and will have an exhibit of around 20-30 international wine producers alongside Indian producers, culminating in a show floor with approximately 50 producers in total.
SIAL India 2021 will also see the launch and establishment of Vinexpo, a first for India’s global wine and spirits industry. This B2B event is designed to connect producers from around the world with distribution and retail players in a market with strong potential. It offers the opportunity to showcase wines and spirits in both international and local environments.
In 2019, the Government of Meghalaya coined the phrase ‘Meghalaya on the move’ to commemorate the progress of the State in all developmental initiatives.
In keeping with this advancement, Meghalaya joins SIAL India 2021 as Partner State. 18 brands from Meghalaya nominated by a rigorous selection committee will showcase their products at the Meghalaya Pavilion.
The highlight will be Meghalaya’s Lakadong turmeric, ginger, honey, pineapple and indigenous fruit processed foods. The brands participating use agricultural raw material sourced directly from farmers who harvest using traditional methods and are largely organic.
Each brand then processes them adding their unique innovative twist and this year Team Meghalaya will present honey infused with mustard, mandarin and litchi, chocolate cashews, wild orange pickle, ingmakhir tea (gingerol tea) and many such exclusive-to-Meghalaya products.
SIAL India is one of the country’s biggest B2B food expos and in the last event witnessed 300 plus exhibitors from 30 countries with around 8,000 plus trade visitors, making it the ideal networking and business platform for the food and beverage industry stakeholders.
