Achievements

FEDACOVA is the Federation of Food Industries of the Region of Valencia (Spain), bringing together 30 different Food Industries Associations, including the Spanish national associations of Ice creams and Tigernut Juice, Honey, Persimmon and Nuts, which in turn represent more than 2.100 companies.

This means that more than 70% of all businesses in the food and agriculture sector of the Region of Valencia are part of the Federation. There are a number of companies which, due to their size or particular characteristics, are associated directly with the Federation. This broad spectrum means that all types of companies are represented, from fishing wholesalers to potted goods manufacturers, and from supermarkets to food storage specialists, encompassing the whole value chain of the Food Industry and a broad range of subsectors.

FEDACOVA provides a wide range of services to Food Industries by means of its staff, formed by 8 professionals with high expertise in the Food sector including training; consultancy for the implementation of quality, environmental, health & safety and innovation management systems; promoting of internationalization; attendance at international trade shows and congresses; organization of sectoral events or productions of specific guides and manuals.

FEDACOVA accumulates a big experience in the leadership and participation to R&D project at regional and national level. Recently, FEDACOVA has started being involved in European Projects as a logical evolution with the purpose of supporting the development of the Valencian and Spanish Food Industries. We have succesfully coordinated a Leonardo Project related with Open Innovation for the Agrofood Sector (www.opennewfood.eu) and we are participating in other two EU funded projects and participating in many other proposals.
