As we mentioned in the previous post, Amerex had the pleasure to be at Tecnoalimentaria 2018 and share a stand with Barcelonesa Food Tech (BFT), who were the perfect hosts for a wonderful evening.

We met a lot of visitors and provided information to everyone interested in our innovations and products. Among the products we presented, we can mention PROTEAN and FIBREAN from Barcelonesa, or our own clean label solutions for shelf-life and safety.

Meeting to present Amerex solutions to a customer

Since this was our first experience as exhibitors, we have come to some conclusions:

The visitor’s profile was very diverse (manufacturers from every food industry; food consultants; ingredients’ manufacturers or even the competition). And, although we encountered this wide-ranging profile among our visitors, we can say that all of them were looking for Clean label solutions, being the shelf life solutions particularly requested.

At Amerex, this reinforces our goals and ambitions to offer the latest clean label solutions in the market. Thanks to our research capabilities and our innovations, which are constantly increasing, we are getting closer to new markets. We firmly believe we are on our way to be able to offer our expertise to all food sectors.

Furthermore, another conclusion to be drawn from our meetings is that, among the BFT-Amerex novelties, one of the natural fibre products stood out. This product is FIBREAN, an alternative to traditional additives or ingredients which seems to especially suit vegan products.

Finally, we first wanted to thank Barcelonesa for their invitation to share their stand with us, and also all the people who showed interest in our products. We will keep working on developing our solutions to respond to two of the greatest challenges of the food industry: safety and tailor-made solutions.

Today we are having a look about the 15th Edition of the Barcelona International Machinery, Technology and Ingredients Trade Fair, the FoodTech Barcelona 2018, where we shared a stand with Barcelonesa Group at the Techno Ingredients Show.

Nuria and Alejandro at Barcelona's Gran Vía de Fira

More than 5,100 m2 of Barcelona’s Gran Vía de Fira were the meeting point for companies and professionals from the Techno-Food sector. Around 270 exhibitors from 30 countries (10% more than in the 2015 Edition) received around 40,000 visitors, both national and international (5% more than in the 2015 Edition). The latest developments in the industry were discussed during conferences, round-table discussions, meetings and activities focused on food technology.

View of a Tecnoalimentaria hall

There were three main halls where Tecno Cárnica, Tecno Alimentaria and Tecno Ingredientes carried out their activities. Food ingredients have been in the spotlight this year, among which meat has experienced a rapid growth. Therefore, it is no wonder that one of the halls was exclusively dedicated to said ingredients.

Internationalization was another area that was clearly promoted. This year, the Association of Internationalized Industrial Companies (AMEC) designed a plan thanks to which 500 buyers from 15 different countries in Europe, Asia and America were gathered to attend scheduled business meetings with exhibitors who tried to reach success through business delegations and reverse trade missions. The increased number of foreign visitors is also worth mentioning, since it represented 12% of the total visits.

Lastly, one of the keys to the internationalization process has been obtaining the US Department of Commerce’s Trade Fair Certification, which brings Spanish companies closer to the North American market.

We are certain that in next editions these data will be even better. We have witnessed the expansion of this sector, which encourages us to trust in its capacity to keep expanding and improving in the near future.
