Foods from Spain is also a promotion programme run by ICEX Spain Trade and Investment whose role is to promote exports of Spanish food products to Spain’s priority markets, introducing new products and developing the market for more established ones.
Icex takes a varied strategic approach to the task, from working with Spanish producers, exporters, exporters associations and foreign importers and distributors, helping each side source products or find distribution channels, to arranging product promotions.
These in turn range from generic to product-specific promotions, in-store or through the media and are frequently run in close collaboration with groups of producers.
This website is another tool to promote Spanish food products.
