Sival, trade fair for specialized crops in France

In our project to expand the company, Plantae moves to «Sival» , a leading fair for specialized crops, from January 14 to 16, 2020 in the city of Angers (France).

Sival brings together many companies of up to 40 different nationalities, making it one of the 3 most important fairs in France.
