Committed to innovation

On the other hand, the main innovation and trends index has been The Alimentaria Hub, a vast forum with more than 200 knowledge and debate activities. Thanks to Innoval, 300 launches were exhibited in this space.
The Alimentaria Experience, with its showcookings and culinary classrooms, has been the showcase to diversity, quality and prosperity of Spanish food industry.

Socially responsible Alimentaria
Alimentaria shows its more socially responsible side through its fight against food waste and the recovery of surplus materials from its show. To achieve this compromise, together with the collaboration of Banc dels Aliments volunteers, more than 30,000 kg of food and drink surplus have been collected. Additionally, the NGO Nutrition Without Borders was in charge of the distribution to social organizations of food wastage of the Show. Furthermore, Ecovidrio recycled more than 25 tons of glass consumed during the Show opening days. We would like to reiterate our warmest thanks to all participants of Alimentaria 2016, to make all those altruist initiatives possible.
