Trade Development Visit to Spain
Ranking in the Top 3 export markets for Welsh food and drink, the Spanish market offers excellent opportunities for Welsh food and drink both in the vibrant domestic market and in the vast and extremely buoyant tourist sector.
Spanish buyers continue to look to the UK for both traditional and innovative products especially in the areas of healthy eating with ‘free-from’, natural and organic being booming categories and major priorities for all retailers. Also of interest are convenience and snacking products including bakery and confectionery for both retail (brands and own label) and foodservice.
This visit, supported by the Welsh Government, will provide you with an insight into the Spanish market as well as opportunities to meet with national distributors and retail buyers. Support by international food and drink experts will be on hand prior to and during the visit to help you develop your exporting skills and market knowledge.
A highlight of this visit is the Food and Drink Wales Showcase / Meet the Buyer Event which will provide you with an opportunity to showcase your products to carefully selected buyers from across Spain preceded by accompanied store visits, a market briefing and a trade networking event.
