Salón de Gourmets
Last month we were invited by Isabel Pérez from Extremadura Avante to attend Salón de Gourmets, International Trade Fair. The event held at IFEMA in Madrid is the biggest event in Europe of its kind and hosts over 1,600 exhibitors and over 40,000 of Spain’s finest gastronomic products. This year 130 importers were specifically invited from 30 countries around the world and the event attracted more than 90,000 visitors.
Throughout the week, an intense programme of activities is organised with tastings, contests, awards, product presentations, show cookings, workshops and conferences.
The exhibitors were grouped according to their products and also the region of Spain they are from. Each region had their own area at the event. Las Hermanas were located in the Extremadura zone and La Samiaja at the Sabor a Málaga stand.
The event was not only a fantastic opportunity to catch up and spend time some of our producers but also to learn more about Spain’s gastronomy.
The event was brilliantly organised and an absolutely fantastic experience. We can’t wait to go back next year.
There are some really exciting things in the pipeline so keep an eye on our website and social media channels for updates coming soon.
