The Spanish Federation of Food and Beverage Industries, FIAB, has just launched a new space on its website oriented to the information of SMEs in the food and beverage industry.
FIAB, with the support of MAP, launches the new microsite coinciding with the celebration of the Day of Microenterprises and Small and Medium Enterprises, declared by the United Nations to recognize the importance of these companies.
The new platform aims to help a fundamental and vital part of the sector as they are small and medium enterprises, which make up 99% of the business fabric of the food and beverage industry and represent a turnover of more than 43,000 million euros.
SMEs are a strategic point in the food and beverage industry, not only because of their economic weight, but also because of the social role they play. Present throughout the national territory, they also provide 81% of the total employment of the sector, contributing to fix population, especially in rural areas.
The general director of FIAB, Mauricio García de Quevedo, stressed the importance of having this space to boost a key part of the food and beverage sector. "It is important to offer small and medium-sized companies tools that allow them to connect with all the information necessary to grow. Sometimes the lack of resources or information prevents them from advancing in their activity and that is why it is fundamental to provide them with levers that contribute to improving their level of competitiveness. "

SMEs will have access to current news and information about the SME world, as well as orientation in key pillars as mechanisms for internationalization and R + D + i, in addition to the possibility of participating in other platforms and even in training courses.
