Agenda

ITECHMER 2021, the international trade fair for the fishing industry, invites the professionals to build the future of the marine industry.

As an economic and institutional meeting place, ITECHMER offers business opportunities and exchanges that encourage discussions on the sector’s issues. The organization of events related to the exhibition is again implemented for this 2021 edition by the agency Sea to sea and a committee of experts from the industry.

The three days of the show will be punctuated by conferences and professional meetings focusing on various topics aiming to raise awareness and mobilize stakeholders on the future of the sector, around the thread “Let’s build the future of the sea sector”.

Wednesday 6 October, the first day will focus on “The sea, an ocean of values”.
Marketing of unknown species, processing of by-products, creation of eco-labels, development of marine biotechnologies and consumer awareness are ways to develop the sector.

The day of Thursday 7 October will highlight “an industry in transition”.

Faced with the challenge of climate change and the protection of marine biodiversity, professionals and industrialists in the marine sector are innovating to improve the energy efficiency of vessels and facilities, reduce waste, and develop more selective gear that has less impact on the environment.

The last day of the event, which is more widely attended by fishermen, on Friday 8 October, will be focused on “the future of French and European fisheries”.
After the Covid-19 crisis and the UK’s exit from the European Community, the industry is closing ranks and reinventing itself.

11am-12.30pm: “Towards regional (eco)labels?”

Round-table
  • Salle Bretagne
    Moderated by Erick Vallée, fishing engineer, director of Haliocéan.

     

    For years, we have seen a real desire to create brands with a regional connotation, with successes but also some failures. Alongside these approaches, a national, poorly known ecolabel exists, while some international labels continue to be a reference for buyers (but not necessarily known by consumers). In recent years, these regional brands have been evolving by increasingly including notions of sustainability. Are these approaches complementary to national approaches or, on the contrary, do they fill a gap and meet the growing consumer demand for local products? How does the EGalim Law align with these approaches?

     

    Speakers: Lorraine Puzin, head of the Bureau de l’économie des pêches, DPMA; José Jouneau, president of the FranceAgrimer ecolabel commission; Isabelle Thomas, Breizhmer general secretary ; Arnaud Manner, director of Normandie Fraicheur Mer.

Workshop
