Organized in every two years by the European Snacks Association (ESA) and next taking place in Barcelona, 27-28 June 2019, this fair is fully dedicated to the savoury (salty) snacks sector and is the only one of its kind. The organisers strive to ensure that only qualified trade and business professionals attend to deliver a productive business environment for both visitors and exhibitors.
SNACKEX is a global event which brings together all stages of the demand and supply chain providing a unique opportunity to buy, sell and network with top management, qualified buyers and key decision-makers.
SNACKEX exhibitors are companies engaged in the production and marketing of potato chips, corn chips, potato sticks, peanuts, other snack nuts such as almonds and pistachios, tortillas, pretzels, popcorn, rice products, crackers, savoury biscuits, bread chips, meat snacks, extruded and pellet snacks, food processing equipment, food ingredients and flavourings, food packaging equipment and materials, etc.
New for 2019 the ESA Pavilion will feature 6 regional stations, each highlighting a region of the world, with graphics to show location and appropriate culinary tastes.
A chef will prepare recipes from each international region for sampling and to highlight three market trends – health, wellness and nutrition;
texture and sensory; trading up and indulgence. Each station will also include a display of snacks from that region and provide an opportunity to sample the snacks accordingly. The overall theme of the fair and accompanying conference is to help the sector identify opportunities and gain a business advantage from snackification. Snackification has become one of the biggest drivers of change and opportunity in the food industry, presenting huge opportunities for snack makers – and huge challenges too. The proliferation of new snack product types and brands has made the traditional bagged snacks snacking space intensely competitive and the fight for shelf-space is tougher than ever. SNACKEX aims to help participants understand how savoury snack consumers will develop in the next 3-5 years and how to grasp the business opportunities this sector offers.
