Consumers are increasingly interested in healthy and gourmet food
Each year, the Winter Fancy Food Show and the Summer Fancy Food Show exceed expectations, demonstrating the upward trend in gourmet food. Consumers are not only demanding healthy and nutritious products, they are also looking for different gastronomic experiences that allow them to discover new flavors.
Both events will feature national and international exhibitors, with Spain occupying a prominent place thanks to its quality products, exclusive ingredients and innovative recipes.
Among all of them, nuts stand out, crunchy and healthy snacks that offer great culinary versatility. For this reason, they are great options to be taken into account by retailers, wholesalers, restaurateurs and, in short, any professional dedicated to the food sector.
Nuts of Spanish origin, such as Marcona or Valencia almonds, can be consumed alone, as the perfect snack, but also as an ingredient in all kinds of preparations, providing a unique texture and flavor. No wonder Spain has become the third largest producer of almonds in the world.
