Spain’s food industry is booming with more than 30,000 companies in food transformation, 50 specialized universities, 20 cutting-edge technological centers, and 407 Foodtech startups. Foodtech refers to all economic factors associated with innovation in the food industry, ranging from food production to food consumption. Spain has one of the most prolific ecosystems in the industry and is paving the way through various initiatives (see this year’s Foodtech report).
“The report reveals the international potential of #SpainFoodTechNation across the different initiatives that have been developed throughout the last year,” says María Peña Chief Executive Officer of ICEX Spain Export and Investment. The Foodtech sector within the food chain in Spain is consistent with the power of our Food Industry, which has broken export records in the competitive market.
In the past year there was a significant increase in investment in both domestic and foreign funds specialized in the ecosystem and firm commitment of the Spanish Administration to promote innovation in the food system through the Next Generation Funds. Spain is the fourth largest agri-food power in Europe and tenth in the world with top quality products in the agri-food sector across international markets. #SpainFoodTechNation is tackling the sustainability concerns of the meat industry with the wave of alternative protein, which is gaining traction in the market with meat alternatives as one of the fastest-growing categories.
This year, there will be more than 2,000 participating exhibitors exploring trends in the natural foods community as they return to the first in-person industry event following COVID-19. The event will include 8 halls, a natural and speciality foods arena and a fresh ideas organic marketplace for a robust lineup of events and exhibitors.
