Export Agro Days 2022: 4 days to discuss French agri-food trade internationally

Co-organized by the Ministry of Agriculture and Food and its partners, with Business France, the “Agro Export Days 2022” are held in dematerialized format from April 5 to 8, 2022.

Intended for companies (SMEs – ETIs) in the agricultural, agri-food and agricultural and agri-food equipment sectors, this event aims to raise awareness of export opportunities and connect exporters to the international “agro” network.

Objective: to remobilize the actors of this sector to set out again to conquer foreign markets.

A real booster for developing your business, exporting is also a powerful way to bounce back after the Covid-19 crisis. In 2021, with a positive balance of 7.9 billion euros (+2% compared to 2019, before the crisis), trade in agricultural and agri-food products contributes significantly to the performance of France’s trade balance.

An export overview to discover several markets

Accurate and up-to-date information on the markets and their opportunities is a key element that must be brought to the attention of companies. In order to support them on these subjects, the 2022 Agro Export Days offer SMEs and ETIs the opportunity to participate free of charge and à la carte in a rich program of webinars and round tables designed as part of the partnership between the Ministry of Agriculture and Food and Business France. They also allow you to benefit from the latest studies and information, expert views and company testimonials.

“Information is the first key to international success and gaining new market share. The 2022 Agro Export Days are fully in line with Business France’s mission to support French companies by providing them with reliable information on market developments and tailor-made support.” emphasizes Pascale Thieffry, Director of the Agrotech Business France department.

A digital program over 4 days

For four days, online conferences, thematic or geographical workshops will follow one another to provide access to strategic information on the markets, to decipher the new challenges of export and to exchange with experts:
