  • Spanish Agricultural Proposals for the European Elections

    Among the proposals FIAB demands a representation according to the importance of the food industry in the European Union (EU), proposing a Parliamentary Commission to respond to agro/sea/food questions or an intergroup that brings together all the issues regarding the food and beverage industry.

    The Federation calls a “reinforced” internal market; to organize the regulatory impact assessment of the Commission to make it more “executive, effective and rational”; to raise the Spanish model of business relationships in the food chain at Community level; to boost an innovation policy; to simplify legislation; and to take over pending issues, such as the promotion of food regulatory projects.

  • 17th Montoro Olive Tree Trade Fair, Spain, 14 to 17 May 2014

    In May of this year Montoro will play host to the next Olive Tree Trade Fair.

    The emblematic facilities of the Patrimonio Comunal Olivarero will from 14 to 17 May 2014 welcome more than a hundred exhibitors who are keen to be involved each year.

    The Montoro Olive Tree Trade Fair offers a magnificent opportunity for showcasing the latest technological and scientific innovations in the sector, establishing good business relationships and exchanging information and analysis about current trends.

    This year is the 25th Anniversary of the very first Olive Tree Trade Fair, which at that time was known as the Olive Tree Festival. This initiative, which was started by a collective (Club Recreativo Cultural Ilígora), has been growing in importance each year and it has now become a leading event, both nationally and internationally.

    Dedicated exclusively to the professionals in the sector, its popularity, the huge amount of business that takes place during the event and, of course, the fantastic personalised service offered to the exhibitors, make the 16th edition an extremely important event in the olive sector.

    As in other years, in parallel with the Trade Fair there will be other activities of special interest: tastings, technical workshops and a technological innovation competition, among others.
