Ready for GulFood Dubai 2021!

Next week, between 21 and 25 February, Essence Food will exhibit an innovative food proposal, based on the application of digital technology to new forms of innovative, functional food, at the 26th GulFood Dubai.

GulFood is the largest professional agri-food trade fair in the Persian Gulf and Middle East, as well as in Africa, South-east Asia and Oceania. It is a strategic event that attracts a large number of leading international buyers from the food sector: wholesalers, retailers, supermarkets, catering, beverage importers and restaurants, among others. In 2020, 152 countries were represented in more than 300,000 m2, more than 100,000 visitors and sales of more than 200,000,000 dollars.

Marcio Barradas, CEO and founder of Essence Food, travels to the United Arab Emirates accompanied by part of his team to present the company in its own space for 3D food production and to participate in the presentation “Food Waste – From trash to cash” (Tuesday 23rd, 12.00 p.m.) together with relevant speakers in the sector such as Sheikh Dr. Majid Al Qassimi, from Soma Mater, and Ignacio Ramírez, from Winnow Solutions within Innovation Summit.

“It’s not just about food traceability, our solution provides much more useful information for consumers, giving them back a right that the traditional industry had taken away from them: to know what they eating,” says Marcio Barradas, who recalls that Essence Food is a clear example of sustainable, digital transformation in response to the market’s needs.

He will be accompanied by Rafael Simón, co-CEO of Essence Food, and Catalan chef Mateu Blanch, a pioneer in 3D culinary printing and holder of a Michelin Star. Blanch will be in charge of leading the showcookings in which he will demonstrate the operation and versatility of Moodbytes, a company hold by Essence Food specialized in 3D food printing.

Marcio Barradas received the first Food Tech Solutions award at GulFood 2020, the Best Maker at GulFood 2019 and the 3D Food Innovation Award at Alimentaria Barcelona 2018, as well as being a guest company at the well-known Ted Talks.

In Galicia, it has been supported by the accelerator Business Factory Food (BFF) promoted by the Xunta de Galicia and energized by the Food Cluster of Galicia and leading companies in the food industry.
