Sudvinbio raises a glass to successful 2014 organic-wine event

Aurore Bernard - 18-mars-2014 12:11:25

Sudvinbio, the organizer of the Millésime Bio 2014 trade show, has described this year’s event as an outstanding success, with over 4,200 visitors. Millésime Bio 2014 was held from 27 to 29 January 2014, in Montpellier (France). Thanks to an array of conferences and wine-tasting events, it represents a unique professional forum for the organic-wine market and the trade. Sudvinbio, the organizer of Millésime Bio, one of the foremost international events in organic winegrowing, has described this year’s event as an outstanding success, thanks to the record number of visitors. Indeed, visitor numbers increased year on year (from 4,160 in 2013 to over 4,240 in 2014), with 20% of visitors coming from outside France. Visitors to the trade show represented a total of 20 nationalities. The majority of visitors came from the Benelux countries (19.60%), followed by Scandinavia (15.60%), Germany (14%), North America (11%) and, finally, Asia (6.80%). Exhibitor numbers also rose – from 689 in 2013 to 787 in 2014 – with France, Italy and Spain the most represented countries. However, attendance from a number of other nations was also strong, with winegrowers based in countries such as Germany, Portugal and, for the first time, Slovenia, exhibiting at the trade fair. Millésime Bio was held at the Exhibition Centre, in the city of Montpellier (Southern France), from 27 to 29 January of this year. Millésime Bio is a unique concept that brings together organic wines from a variety of French regions and from many countries outside France. The trade show provides an important platform for dialogue and exploration through conferences, and the increase in visitor/exhibitor numbers at this year’s event is confirmation that Millésime Bio has become established as the trade event of reference for the organic-wine sector. The organic-wine market is steadily increasing in overall importance, with a 6% rise in the size of the land area given over to organic-wine production in France between 2011 and 2012. Over a four-year period, the surface area devoted to organic winegrowing in France has almost tripled. The three leading French regions are Languedoc-Roussillon (51,385 acres, up 4% in one year), Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (36,781 acres, up 8%), and Aquitaine (24,097 acres, up 3%). Worldwide, France is in second place — behind Spain and ahead of Italy — in terms of the size of its organic-winegrowing sector. According to a consumer survey carried out in France in 2013 by French market-research company IPSOS, one in three people polled indicated regularly or occasionally drinking organic wine. The industry turnover in 2012 stood at €413 million overall (up 15%, year on year). Export sales — to countries such as Germany, Japan and the USA, among others — have risen and, at €58 million in value, now represent 19% of the turnover of the organic-food-and-drink sector. The prime distribution channel for organic wine is direct sales (36%), followed by retail outlets specializing in organic products (27%), mass-retail food stores (19%) and, finally, small shops (17%). About Sudvinbio Sudvinbio was formed in 1991 by organic winegrowers in order to collectively promote their wines. Formerly called the Inter-professional Association for Organic Wine from Languedoc-Roussillon (AIVB-LR), it was renamed Sudvinbio in 2012. Today, Sudvinbio is held in high regard by industry professionals and by institutional players as an active and dynamic association which, through its actions, has widely contributed to enhancing the profile of organic wines from Languedoc-Roussillon, and that of the organic-wine sector in general. The next Millésime Bio trade show will be held from 26 to 28 January 2015 at the Exhibition Centre, in Montpellier (Southern France).

Tipiak’s Tesco offering gets the party started this Christmas

Joanna Routaboul - 15-oct.-2013 16:31:13

Tipiak, a French manufacturer of frozen party-food products, has launched two new products in time for the Christmas party season. In Britain, these gourmet treats are available from Tesco at a recommended retail price of £5 per box and can be found in the frozen-produce aisles.  Easy to serve, the desserts — French Macarons and French Mini Pâtisseries — can be defrosted in the refrigerator and are ready to eat after just one to two hours.   Anne-Marie Beguin, Senior National Account Manager for Tipiak in the UK, explains: “We noticed there was a gap in the Frozen Party Foods offer for premium festive products and we were convinced we could fill that gap thanks to Tipiak’s years of expertise in sweet and savoury canapés.”   Innovation is at the heart of Tipiak’s strategy. Anticipating new market trends is the key to creating new products that meet customer expectations, particularly during the Christmas and New Year holidays, when consumers are seeking premium products. Tipiak Traiteur Pâtissier, the company’s cocktail-party division, has experienced steady development since its creation more than 15 years ago.   Today, Tipiak Traiteur Pâtissier is market leader in finger foods and appetizers thanks to its wide range of high-quality products, ongoing innovation, and a ‘ready-to-use’ format.   Tipiak Traiteur Pâtissier has been present in the UK for over 10 years in the foodservice industry — supplying Brakes and 3663 — and Tipiak is now taking its first step into the retail market.  Tipiak’s gourmet treats are now available from Tesco supermarkets across Britain, at a recommended retail price of £5 per box; they can be found, in time for the festive season, in the frozen-produce aisles.   Anne-Marie Beguin explains: “Here, at Tipiak, we are delighted and very excited to have the 12 French Macarons and 12 French Mini Pâtisseries on sale at Tesco. The aim of Tipiak is to become a recognised player for premium quality and innovation within the chilled and frozen Party Food categories. We are working closely with retailers to understand consumer needs and develop tailor-made products.”   The 12 French Macarons and 12 French Mini Pâtisseries are presented on a black tray protected by a plastic film and packed in an attractive box.   The French Macarons pack offers varieties that come in four flavours: chocolate (with cocoa from Santo Domingo), vanilla (with vanilla from Madagascar), salted caramel (with salt from Guérande, in Western France) and strawberry (with real Mara des Bois strawberries).   Tipiak macarons are made with selected, whole almonds from California that are ground in-house, in order to guarantee the full flavour in the macarons. The macarons are then generously filled with chocolate ganache, butter cream or fruit purée to offer a soft creamy centre. Their firm but delicate shells are finally sandwiched together by hand.   The French Mini Pâtisseries pack offers four of the most famous traditional French pastries: Paris-Brest, a typical choux bun filled with praline cream and topped with almond or hazelnut; a macaron topped with peach purée and a raspberry; a religieuse, which is a well-known treat of two choux buns filled with crème patissière and coated in chocolate; and, finally, a caramel éclair, i.e. a choux pastry finger filled with a salted-caramel cream. The choux pastry is made in-house and then carefully filled and glazed by hand.   About Tipiak   Tipiak Group was created in 1967 from the merger of two century-old French companies. Tipiak specializes in the manufacture and distribution of dry and frozen products through four key divisions. The company is headquartered in Nantes (Western France) and has an office in the UK.   In 2012, Tipiak Traiteur Pâtissier had a turnover of €55.6 million and employed close to 560 staff. In order to meet potentially significant market growth, both inside and outside France, the division has three production sites that are IFS- and BRC-certified — with IFS standing for International Food Standard, and BRC for British Retail Consortium.   For further information about the company, please go to: www.tipiak.com   For further information, please contact :   Quote ref. : FTPB3875 Ms Kate RILEY - Press Officer UBIFRANCE Press Office in London Tel: +44 (0) 207 024 3640 kate.riley@ubifrance.fr View other press releases at : http://www.ubifrance.com/uk/
