Cfic 2023: a success!

The Carrefour des fournisseurs de l'industrie cosmétique (Cfic), a meeting place for industrial solutions in the cosmetics industry dedicated to the sector's major transitions, was held at the same time as Prod&Pack, on November 21 and 22, 2023 at Eurexpo Lyon. Read the report.

 "With sales of €30.4 billion and an international market share of 15 %, the cosmetics sector is one of the jewels in the crown of French industry. This sector of excellence has not escaped the major changes transforming our industrial landscape, and more than ever must reinvent itself in the face of consumer aspirations and demands: 67 % of French people prefer cosmetics brands that are committed to the environment, 80 % of French consumers are looking for cosmetics made in France," points out the company's CEO. Julie Voyer, Cfic Director. These observations give rise to new opportunities, conducive to meetings and business development. It is for this very reason that we decided to create the Carrefour des fournisseurs de l'industrie cosmétique (Cfic), with the support and expertise of our partner Cosmed.

Focused on the challenges facing companies in the cosmetics sector, Cfic has set out to develop concrete solutions to support manufacturers in the transition to a greener, more energy-efficient, digital and socially responsible world, by offering solutions covering the entire industry value chain: ingredients, packaging, digital solutions and services, materials and equipment...

Over two days, some 150 exhibitors showcased their innovative or value-added solutions for the environment, demonstrating the energy benefits of their products and the traceability/readability advantages of their offering for the end consumer.

Great initiatives

The high point of the Cfic is the Cfic Awards, an event that represents a tremendous opportunity to identify innovations and new ideas, to identify suppliers capable of questioning and adapting, to detect future partners, to identify new levers for growth, and to conquer new markets.

This first edition of the Cfic Awards highlighted innovations already available on the market, as well as prototypes, divided into four categories: environmental transition, energy transition, digital & digital transition, and societal transition. Twenty-six services and products (from 22 companies) were in the running. Five prizes were awardedone in each category, plus a Jury's Favourite award.

A different approach to transitions

A unique concept means different content! That's what the Cfic conferences are all about. The challenges facing cosmetics manufacturers were confronted with the visions of experts from a wide range of fields! An opportunity to learn from other experiences and explore new avenues with inspiring speakers.

Nearly 200 people attended the conferences, most of which were packed to capacity.

Jobs and training: schools and students in attendance

Over the two days of the event, five schools welcomed companies, young people and job-seekers with a common goal - to promote the attractiveness of the cosmetics industry through their national networks.

At the heart of the educational establishments' concerns: identifying talent and raising awareness of work-study programs and training courses.

The young participants, for their part, sought to discover the industry's professions, explore existing training courses and meet the manufacturers who are recruiting.

In all, Prod&Pack and Cfic exhibitors posted over 100 job offers at the show! All job offers remain available on the website, Employment & Training page.

See you on December 3 and 4, 2024 for the next edition of Cfic, in Orléans!
