Nicaragua in the world's largest food innovation exhibition

Nicaragua has confirmed its participation in SIAL París 2018, a trade fair held every two years which specializes in the food processing industry.

The Salon International de l’alimentation (SIAL) is globally recognized as the world's largest food innovation exhibition and in 2017 it had 2,189 products registered, 552 food innovations selected by a jury of professionals and 15 Awards given to the most innovative products.

Through its Chamber of Industry (Cadin) and the Franco-Nicaraguan Chamber of Commerce (CCFRNIC), Nicaragua aims to exchange knowledge with professionals from the food industry, publicize the evolution of the Nicaraguan food industry and discover possible innovations, investments and opportunities for local producers.

“This fair is one of the largest in the world and is a complete and representative offer of all agents in the sector of food and beverages”, said Sergio Maltez, president of Cadin.

The Law Firm, specialized in the field of Intellectual Property, formerly known as Henry Caldera & Henry Caldera-Pallais, was founded in 1907 by Mr. Henry Caldera, as part of a three-way operation consisting also of the import and retail of goods. With time, these three operations became separate enterprises. That same year, and through the efforts of Mr. Caldera, Nicaragua had its first Trademark Law.

In the late 1930’s, Mr. Caldera’s older son, Henry Caldera-Pallais, after obtaining a Law degree in Nicaragua, furthered his studies in the University of Michigan, where he graduated to become a U.S. Registered Patent Agent. During his stay in the United States, he gained experience working with the New York firm of Lagner, Parry, Card and Largner. In the late 1940’s, Mr. Caldera-Pallais returned to Nicaragua to take charge of the Law Firm, which became known as Henry Caldera & Henry Caldera-Pallais.
