Intersicop 2017 aims to become the meeting point not only for suppliers and professionals, but also for manufacturers and distributors, students and colleges, pastry chefs, bakers, ice cream makers and other groups linked to the three big sectors represented at the show: confectionery, ice cream and baking. As a novelty this year, coffee and chocolate are to be particularly showcased.

 

The comprehensive trade exhibition of products and services will be further enhanced by numerous parallel activities, including technical demonstrations, talks of interest to professionals, presentations of new products, national competitions and other content that will be organised to complete this industry event.

 

For visitors and sector professionals alike, the show is an opportunity to discover novelties and suppliers, to learn from the great masters and experts in a host of areas related to their profession, as well as a forum to share impressions and experiences with sector colleagues.

 

Latest trends in equipment, products and services

In an extensive show space, Intersicop 2017 brings together touchstone companies in the confectionery, ice cream and bakery sector, ranging from furniture and fitting specialists, commercial refrigeration and oven experts, to manufacturers of materials for artisan chocolate makers and raw materials, all of whom will be highlighting the latest trends in equipment, products and services.

 

Professional visitors will have the opportunity of discovering business suppliers and product novelties to maximise their businesses and ensure they are at the cutting edge of their respective sectors, such as, for instance, glass case models to make the showcasing of their products more attractive; vertically ventilated ice crushers to save time and money; silicone moulds for original creations in the shape of fruit, spirals or half-moons; cacao dating back to 3,000 BC; bread ovens with smartphone features; packaging with food safety certificate; alternatives to traditional sweeteners; chocolate spread to make truffle ice cream, etc.

Technical Seminars

In parallel with the exhibition, Intersicop has organised a complete programme of activities that includes 25 technical seminars to be given by master confectioners, bakers and ice cream makers of international renown.

Three national champions

Three national competitions of great interest to the professional visitor are to be held in the course of this year's Intersicop.

I National Pastry Student Championship. This first edition, to be organised by CEEAP, will see 24 pastry students competing from schools from all over Spain. A magnificent opportunity to see future professionals at work in person.

Artistic Cake Competition. Some 11 pastry chefs aspire to winning this competition for professionals organised by the Spanish Artisan Pastry Business Confederation (CEEAP), where their celebration cakes will be assessed on decoration and presentation.

II National Artisan Bakery Championship. Nine new contestants are set to take part in this competition, organised by the Spanish Confederation of Bakery Organisations (CEOPAN), the aim of which is to create a pool of talented bakers to join the Spanish National Artisan Bakery team, better known as “Los Espigas”, which came out of Intersciop 2015.

Confectionery, ice cream making and baking, three sectors with a big social impact

Gastronomy in general is booming, and baking, confectionery and ice cream making as gastronomic pursuits are receiving increasingly greater public recognition. The possibility of making top quality, unique products of an artisan character are major factors in making these professions that little bit special, while at the same time constituting their best competitive arguments. Accordingly, Intersicop provides a meeting place where these values can be duly reaffirmed, while at the same time affording each sector the limelight it so deserves.
