“SpainFoodNation” combines food tourism with sustainability

13 April, 2022

“SpainFoodNation” is a new programme that seeks to promote Spanish gastronomy worldwide within the framework of the first Food Tourism International Conference, which will take place at the beginning of April within the 20th edition of Madrid Fusión fair.

The initiative is being promoted by the Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism, Reyes Maroto, who has highlighted that gastronomy is a strategic priority for the Spanish Government, “not only because of its huge value as a tourist lure, but also because of its capacity to fight against territorial depopulation and the demographic challenge, and its power to promote the Spain Brand internationally.

Spain is world-leading in gastronomy thanks to the high quality of its raw materials and the sector’s well-trained workers, with all this being backed by innovation. Due to these facts, Maroto considers that “SpainFoodNation” programme will contribute to enhancing this leadership.
