Canada, Japan & Greece to debut at Alimentaria 2020

For the first time, Canada, Japan and Greece will each have a dedicated pavilion at Alimentaria 2020, a key event for the food and drink industry.

Greek companies will participate under the umbrella of Promo Solutions, the Canadian pavilion will be organised by the Canadian Food Exporters Association (CFEA), and Japanese companies will be exhibiting under the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO).

Among the official pavilions already confirmed and returning to Alimentaria 2020 are the US and Israel, which increased their contracted surface area by 20% compared to 2018.

Italy, Germany, Portugal, Belgium – which has a space for the Wallonia region and another for Flanders –, Romania, Poland, Morocco, Argentina, Ecuador, Colombia, China, Korea, Indonesia and Thailand are also participating again.

Alimentaria is preparing new content aimed at enhancing its entrepreneurial nature and projecting gastronomy as its differential value, with the hallmark of innovation.

The main new feature of the trade show will be Alimentaria Trends, which will display the latest trends in production and consumption, such as delicatessen foods (Fine Foods), organic production (Organic Foods), allergen-free products (Free From), Halal production (Halal Foods) and functional products (Functional Foods).

In 2020, Alimentaria’s meat industry area (Intercarn) will be getting a bigger presence at the show, while the other sectors will be structured as per last edition,  such as dairy products (Interlact), preserves (Expoconser), sweets and snacks (Snacks, Biscuits & Confectionery); the Mediterranean diet, fresh produce, olive oils and vegetable oils (Mediterranean Foods), and Food Service (Restaurama).

Together alongside the Grocery Foods will bring the main consumer goods companies, International Pavilions will bring together all the foreign supply, while Lands of Spain will do the same with the national production of the 17 different regions of Spain.

In 2020, for the second consecutive edition, Alimentaria will be held jointly with Hostelco – the International Hotel and Restaurant Trade Show – making available the distribution and the horeca channel, and Alimentaria becoming the most complete cross-sector of food, gastronomy and catering equipment Show in the world under one roof.

Alimentaria will be held next April from 20th to 23rd at Fira de Barcelona.
