Gastro Marca España seeks to raise awareness of the characteristics of our cuisine: its historic roots, the excellence of our food and the meticulous innovation of our cuisine
When Alimentaria in Barcelona opened in the 1970’s, our food was not very well known in the world, exports were scarce, concentrating mainly on citrus fruits and some vegetables, but since then, there has been an absolute transformation. Nowadays, Spanish food from diverse sectors (fruit, vegetables, oils, meat, cheeses, sweets…) has become established and even enjoys great prestige. ()
We have become the world leaders in olive oil. We are the largest wine producers and the main exporter of vegetables in Europe. Mast-fed Iberian hams are the best in the world, our cheeses are constantly winning awards. Tapas are becoming the way of eating with the best international acceptance and our chefs occupy the top positions in all of the culinary rankings
. What more can we ask for?
In just a few years, Alimentaria became one of the main European trade fairs. It was followed by El Salón de Gourmets, an event model in which the most innovative food and presentations find their place. But there are more: Madrid Fusión is the stage for the most interesting show cooking, Millesimée has been created to display elite food, San Sebastian Gastronómika stands out for the quality of its food and chefs, the Vic Forum excels for its prestige, Vibexpo is a fair dedicated to wines, not to mention the Valladolid National Tapas Competition, among many others. They all work to give prestige to Marca España.
