Alimentaria 2008

Alimentaria is one of the most important trade fairs in the FFB calendar of events attracting both national and international exhibitors looking to access the Spanish market.FFB encourages British companies with distribution in the market to exhibit at Alimentaria. Benefit from new contacts with the potential to generate increased sales in the market.In 2006, this 5-day exhibition was attended by over 150,000 visitors of which 32,892 came from outside Spain. A move to the new exhibition centre in Barcelona, Gran Via, is welcomed and should ensure a much higher quality of visitor.

Alimentaria is divided into a number of product sector halls. Food from Britain will build pavilions subject to demand in the international hall and the drinks hall, aimed at producers of wines and spirits ensuring a high profile for individual companies looking to build business in Spain.

Some 25 companies joined the group in 2006. Applications are now being received for the 2008 edition of the show.
It is the Spain's largest and most important trade show suitable for British suppliers targeting the mainstream retail, ex-pat, foodservice and drinks markets.

Why Spain?

--> Spain - the 3rd largest export market for British food & drink products with huge potential in both mainstream and tourist markets.

--> Good potential exists for ready meals, biscuits, frozen foods, beer, ethnic foods, cheeses, spirits, cereals, tea, and confectionery products

--> Total food and drink imports = £13 billion of which the UK has a 7% share
