Alimentaria, the biennial food and beverage fair, will take place from 25 to 28 April in Barcelona. Once again, Mercabarna will participate with a stand from where it will present the corporate social responsibility and sustainability activities and projects that it fosters, in addition to highlighting the value of local products.
Last November 25, the 'Mercabarna Innova' awards were presented, designed to encourage the creation of innovative projects by the companies in the Alimentary Unit. The first edition recognized the work done by the Fruit Friends and Laumont companies, whose entries were a dehydrated fruit bar and a mushroom app for chefs, respectively.
Mercabarna has commissioned a study from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) and the Plataforma Aprovechamos los Alimentos (Let's Make Use of Food Platform, PAA) to establish the volume of food waste produced from the activity in the precinct and to suggest areas of work to reduce this to the minimum.
