The 10th edition of Gourmet Selection, the trade fair for gourmet grocery professionals, took place on 10 and 11 September 2023 at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles. We look back over two days during which dedicated artisan producers and professionals in search of the finest products and the latest culinary trends were able to meet up and exchange views.
"This tenth edition of Gourmet Selection yet again showed us the significant role this show plays in the gourmet grocery market. It is a veritable trend barometer, and at the show it's amazing to see just how creative and ingenious our exhibitors are at constantly reinventing themselves to meet new consumer desires. In addition to the choice selection of products on offer, visitors were also able to get information and training on industry practices, such as developing catering services. I am proud to see the show expanding internationally and meeting the expectations of so many producers, grocers, and buyers from all over the world. "
