Barcelona Food Cluster Association

The Barcelona Food Cluster Association, established in 2009, is a company run and coordinated by Mercabarna and made up of around 40 companies and institutions linked to the Catalan food sector.

It is a strategic collaboration platform in which members, with the support of R&D institutions and institutes, jointly study and reflect, implement and manage initiatives that reinforce their competitiveness.
