The world's largest fresh produce market


A visit to arguably the world’s biggest food exhibition in Paris would not be complete without a visit to Rungis International Market, the world’s first and, today the largest, fresh product market. An excruciating wake-up call at 2:30am is guaranteed to be more than worthwhile by the sights, sounds, smells and sensations that greets the visitor (tours are conducted daily via pre-booking).




General statistics:

According to Marc Spielrein, chairman of SEMMARIS, the financial group has spent a lot of time and effort – particularly in the last year – ensuring that Rungis Market stays on the forefront. ‘Rungis Market represents a logistical and commercial hub that takes in nearly 2.5 million tonnes a year,’ he states. ‘This does not detract from the fundamental nature of the physical market; without that market, the other activities would not exist. However, the synergies are very strong and simultaneously functioning of these complementary activities increases the value added of the whole. This illustrates the originality of a model that is the envy of all wholesale markets.’
