Alimentaria FoodTech 2021

October 2021 - Barcelona

Alimentaria FoodTech 2018 reached 25,000 square metres after eight months and confirms the sector’s confidence in the fair, which is entering a phase focused on its supply sectors: processing, ingredients, packaging, Industry 4.0, food safety, refrigeration, maintenance, logistics and other industrial services.

More than 200 leading companies have already confirmed their participation in the 2020 exhibition, including Ibercassel. This exhibition is postponed due to the Corona pandemic. Alimentaria FoodTech 2021 is planning an exhibition area of more than 35,000 m2, 15% more than in the last edition, and more than 900 exhibiting brands. “The numbers achieved show the industry’s confidence in Alimentaria FoodTech 2020 as a platform for new business opportunities,” said Ricardo Márquez, Director of Alimentaria FoodTech.

Ibercassel is present

Ibercassel’s management has renewed its confidence in participating in this fair, as it has worked very well in 2018, when Foodtech and Hispack were held together, to internationalise our products and reach more manufacturers.

The products that Ibercassel distributes are ideal for industries linked to food production, and Foodtech is a good place to reach this target group.

We will take this opportunity to present the most advanced products for detecting all types of contamination in production lines.

New program

Alimentaria FoodTech 2021 creates a comprehensive program of value-added activities focused on innovation from the industry. For example, the Innovation Meeting Point (IMP), which is divided into three areas, will again be presented at the fair: Technology Centres, Start-ups and Conferences on the most important topics in the sector. The IMP will be the hub where the transfer of knowledge on the industry’s most popular topics is promoted.

The Innova FoodTech Awards will also be presented during the event, which will highlight the most creative and innovative products presented by exhibitors at the fair. and the Emprende FoodTech Awards, which will reward entrepreneurs who contribute to technological innovation in food transformation and preservation.

The sector in figures

For the production of machinery, technologies, ingredients and services for the food industry in Spain, a total of 2,429 million euros were invoiced in 2018, of which 686 million euros corresponded to exports (approximately 2% more than the foreign sales in Spain) in 2017) according to the Association of Internationalized Industrial Companies (amec).

Europe is the main destination for Spanish exports in this sector, with a global share of 55%. France, the United Kingdom and Portugal are the main markets for companies in the sector, all of which will be widely represented at Alimentaria FoodTech 2020. Thus, 9% of the international visitors who attended the 2018 edition came from France, 4% from the United Kingdom and 18% from Portugal.
