The countdown to SIAL 2012, one of the largest trade events in the food industry calendar continues. And as it does so, the just-food diary brings you more news of what to expect from a range of exhibitors laying out their wares this year in Paris.

Acetaia Giusti Dal 1605 (Hall 1, Stand G029) is Italy’s oldest maker of balsamic vinegars, having been founded in 1605 and led by the 17th generation of the family. At SIAL this year, Giusti will be presenting its range of traditional balsamic vinegars, some of which are even enjoyed by the King of Italy. Giusti’s Claudio Stefani Giusti told just-food: “If I would have to choose a product to feature, I would chose our Balsamic Vinegar of Modena “3 Gold Medals, Riccardo Giusti” dedicated to the ancestor of the 1800’s who invented the recipe.” Local grapes of “a very late harvest” are cooked down and left to age in antique casks for more than 12 years so that the product becomes “smooth, dense, rich of sweet notes and deeply aromatic”, Giusti explained.

Agroindustrias Amazonicas (Hall 3 – Stand E017) will be focusing on communicating the health benefits associated with oils and proteins containing the Inca Inchi seed. The Peruvian group manufactures oils with a high content of Omega 3 and proteins extracted from organically grown Inca Inchi seeds. These oils are naturally high in Omega 3, low in saturated fats and rich in vitamins A and E, the company said.

Agreekculture (Hall 2 – Stand N028) is a newly established exports company for Greek extra virgin olive oil, will be launching its new product, A Couple of Drops. The oil is made directly koroneiki cultivar olives and is presented in a “modern elegant minimalistic” tin, as well as more traditional glass bottles. “Our idea is to develop a stand out item that thrives for distinction and quality,” sales manager Constantica Kirou told just-food. “We guarantee a premium quality product in high production volumes, with an exquisite design, for an ‘au courant’ -well informed, up to date, upper- clientele, an ambitious marketing approach and a highly competitive pricing policy.”
