The 5th edition of Meat Attraction has been presented, which will take place from March 6 to 8, 2023 at the IFEMA MADRID fairgrounds, in collaboration with Anafric. The presentation brought together around 50 companies from the meat sector to analyze the current situation of this industry, the uncertainty surrounding decision-making, as well as seeking solutions to the difficult situation it is facing in the coming months.
For María José Sánchez, director of Meat Attraction, “the new edition of the fair is an opportunity for meat companies in Catalonia who will be able to meet for three days with buyers from more than 40 countries. Also, by becoming a biennial fair, professionals will not have this opportunity until 2025”. She adds that “with the collaboration of ICEX we invite more than 150 international buyers with whom they can start conversations for international sales, since exports are one of the solutions to the difficult situation that exists today for meat businessmen.”
