Barcelona in March will become the national and European gluten free capital

This exhibition will be held at the International Convention Centre (CCIB), a plot of more than 4.000m2.


This fair will be attended by producers, doctors, journalists and chefs and there will be the latest gluten-free cooking demonstrations and talks by experts, manufacturers and engineers.
