Message from the co-chairs

Dear partners and attendees,
It is with great pride and enthusiasm that we invite you to this 5th edition of the International Rendez vous on Health Food and Ingredients from October 6 to 8, 2020 at the Quebec City Convention Centre.

Over the years, BÉNÉFIQ’s program has adapted to the needs of its clientele. It has evolved with the changes taking place in the bio-food, nutrition and health sectors. Among the basic ingredients that remain at the heart of BÉNÉFIQ is a program that combines internationally renowned scientific speakers with experts from different backgrounds who address current issues and themes.
Another constant at BÉNÉFIQ is the trade show space where small and large companies come to present the innovations that underlie their new product and service lines. Finally, the mixed audience of leaders and precursors who come to exchange and forge scientific and business partnerships in a warm and friendly environment still represents the wealth of BÉNÉFIQ.

This 5th edition will include new features, including an increased presence of the entire entrepreneurial ecosystem and young companies. Mature businesses will even have the chance to join the “Pay It Forward” movement by sponsoring start-ups. Parallel sessions will also highlight the role of social sciences for a better understanding of eating and consumer behaviour. “Together for sustainable food and health” is the theme of this event to which we invite you all.

We look forward to seeing you in Quebec City!
