The fair featured some 3,000 exhibiting companies (400 of which were international), over 85,000 square metres in the Fira de Barcelona venue in Gran Via de L’Hospitalet. Around 23% of visitors were from outside Spain, according to data from the organisers.

The big brands in the sector were present with their own stands, as well as many small and medium-sized companies, grouped in spaces promoted by the different autonomous communities or by business associations. 

The range of sustainable, healthy and innovative products on show at the fair included a packaged suckling pig from Segovia 2.0 that can be kept for up to 60 days without refrigeration, a 3D printer that generates synthetic meat steaks and fillets, a canned potato omelette that can be stored for up to a year, a liquid green olive, and a pea protein snack or a tuna replica made from soy, peas and chickpeas.
