Taste of Spain in Edinburgh

Trade show highlights the versatility of Spanish produce

Foods and Wines Spain is set to host the Taste Spain Edinburgh, showcasing the strength and versatility of products from the country.

MEMBERS of the trade will be sampling the very best food and drink options from Spain later this month as part of the upcoming ‘Taste Spain Edinburgh’ event.

Presented by Foods and Wines from Spain and Alimentos de España, the trade event will be a showcase of Spanish gastronomy featuring artisan cheese, dry-cured hams, chorizo, olive oil, canned fish, beans, honey, apple paste and craft cider.

Visitors will have the opportunity to meet the producers, sample products and learn all about the diverse range of foods produced across the Spanish regions of Asturias, Andalusia, Castile and León as well as Castilla-La Mancha.

The event will take place on Monday 20 May at The Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh.

Food importers, wholesalers, specialist retailers, hospitality and catering buyers from across Scotland and the north of England are invited to register for the event via the link here.

The event also coincides with the Edinburgh edition of the Wines from Spain Annual Tasting which will feature 200 Spanish wines all at the same venue.

Fernando Muñoz, UK director of Foods and Wines from Spain, said: “Last year we commissioned an in-depth market survey which found that there is a desire for seeing trade events outside of London.

“This insight has informed us when developing our promotional strategy for 2024.

“We are therefore delighted to be able to bring together a group of quality focused producers to the iconic Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh for the first time, creating a convenient platform for the Scottish trade to meet producers and experience the gastronomic diversity that Spain has to offer.”
