Grupo Pistacyl, the largest pistachio producer in Castile and Leon, is one of the three Spanish companies selected to participate in a European project aimed at increasing the internationalization of the food sector in the Arab market.
Specifically, Grupo Pistacyl is a beneficiary, along with the Galician companies Cabomar and El Nogal, of aid from the European F2F Health Matters project, which seeks to promote the presence of companies in the food sector in the United Arab Emirates.
Thanks to this initiative, Grupo Pistacyl will have the opportunity to travel from February 12 to 18, 2024 to the United Arab Emirates to meet with potential business partners and publicize the qualities of its pistachio and other products it makes from that dry fruit, as is natural pistachio paste.
To this end, the company from Valladolid has been a beneficiary of 2,000 euros “Travel Aid” for travel and stay expenses derived from its participation in this commercial mission, in which the other two Spanish companies will also take part along with other SMEs from from Belgium, France, Slovakia and Portugal.
In addition to this aid for travel expenses, F2F Health Matters provides checks for the contracting of personalized commercial prospecting consulting services on the Arab market.
It also offers all eligible SMEs the opportunity to attend the online training and preparation program for access to this market, “Elite Programme”, which will be taught from November to February. The objective of all this is to provide comprehensive support to facilitate the access of food and beverage SMEs to foreign markets.
The European F2F (Farm to Fork) Health Matters project is an internationalization accelerator for innovative agri-food SMEs, promoted by an alliance of five European clusters: Wagralim (Belgium), Clusaga (Spain), BioEconomy Cluster (Slovakia), InovCluster (Portugal) and Valorial (France).
