Trailer Biocultura, Barcelona 2016. © Quotidian Films, 2016.
This week the quotidian cooks had to dress up to go to Biocultura 2016 in Barcelona, the leading trade fair in organic products and healthy life. Check the figures: 7,600 professionals, 70,000 visitors, 18,000 indexed products. Er… and you did not know anything about it? If you were in Spain you may think this is because the system dislikes so many people looking for alternatives to the Food Industry. Alternatives to what in the USA is termed BIG FOOD. Curiously, the Spanish media have hardly paid attention to Biocultura. Are we facing another case of media silence?
Just in case, the quotidians replaced our aprons by our video production gear and went to Biocultura to talk with farmers, producers, chefs and all those who have something to say about conscious and healthy food. Thanks to all of them for the professional welcome you gave us. We truly felt being… at home!
Enjoy the trailer on Biocultura and the complete videos: the showcookings and our interviews to the chefs and professionals in the trade show. (In Spanish and Catalan)
