The Alimentaria Expo, postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak, has been moved to September 14 to 17. In a press release, the organisers of the event to be held in Barcelona expressed their “admiration and gratitude to the entire value chain of the food industry for the extraordinary effort it is making to continue its activity and guarantee supply to the entire population. Our applause to both manufacturers who have ceased production as well as distributors and retailers who have reacted quickly in response to increased demand and reinforcing safety and hygiene measures for their workers, collaborators and customers.
“Along with the food sector, restaurants, hotels and food services also deserve great recognition for the sacrifice they are making with the massive, albeit temporary, closure of their businesses, an extreme measure but necessary to stop the spread of the virus. We are convinced that, once the hardest days are over, citizens, governments and other institutions will be able to relaunch the activity of a sector that is so necessary for the country’s economy.”
The second semester of the year will be decisive to revive the industry as a whole and continue offering the highest quality, safety and innovation to consumers. For this reason, and more than ever, we will do everything in our power to ensure that professionals from the sector meet again from September 14 to 17, exchange their experiences, re-value the strength of the sector and project their numerous challenges to the world.
The Alimentaria Exhibitions team continues to work from home to continue preparing Alimentaria and HOSTELCO 2020 and thus fulfill the commitment to offer the sector a good edition. Our purpose is to accompany you at all times and reiterate our absolute support, with the conviction that together we will succeed.
