Spanish companies are in the spotlight at the moment, thanks to the 2022 Gulfood Innovation Awards, held ahead of the Gulfood trade fair in Dubai, which will run from February 13th to the 17th.
Spanish participants included Falcon Gallant, JC Mackintosh, Tártaros Gonzalo Castelló, Edulcodiet, Liven, and Bunge Ibérica, whose subsidiary is Spanish.
Three of those products are finalists. The first is Falcon Gallant’s Moon Water, which is competing in the Most Innovative Organic Product category. This carbonated gluten-free, low-cal drink is made from mineral water and natural fruit juice.
In the Most Innovative Frozen/Chilled Product category is Bunge Ibérica’s Deli Reform Oat Spread, a healthy butter and margerine alternative made with shea and oats.
Lastly, in the Most Impactful Sustainable Product category, Bunge Ibérica’s shea-based, palm oil-free spread is up an award. The winners will be announced at the fair.
