The COPAN21 Congress Reviews the Challenges Ahead for the Bakery Sector

From 2nd to 4th March, InterSICOP and the Spanish Bakery, Pastry and Confectionery Industry Association (ASEMAC) organise COPAN21, the major congress about bread, on InterSICOP’s LIVEConnect platform.

COPAN21 will be an unmissable event for businesses and professionals from across the whole bread sector value chain, with sessions focusing on and addressing the sector’s ongoing challenges. The congress has a packed programme featuring renowned experts and presentations on key issues in regulation, nutrition and functional foods, ingredients, consumer needs, sustainability, and innovation.

For ASEMAC, COPAN21 is an extension of its annual industry-wide panel discussions. Participants include the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPA); the Spanish Confederation of Bakery, Pastry, Pastry and Related Products (CEOPPAN); the Spanish Association of Flour and Semolina Manufacturers (AFHSE); Interprofessional Organisation of Bread Cereals and Derivatives (INCERHPAN); the Spanish Confederation of Artisan Pastry Entrepreneurs (CEEAP); the National Association of Artisan Ice Cream Makers (ANHCEA), and the Spanish Association of Manufacturers of Machinery for Bakery and Pastry (AMEC/AFESPAN).

Over three days, COPAN 21 will mark the launch of InterSICOP LIVEConnect, the world’s largest community and professional social network for the bakery, confectionery and ice cream sector. From 1st and 28th March, it will keep the industry dialogue going until it links up with the face-to-face event in February 2022.
