Association details

The Asociación de Proveedores de Productos y Servicios para la Alimentación Profesional (PROVEA – Professional Food Products and Services Suppliers Association) is a not for profit association set up in 1998 when it was called Sicopex. The Association’s name was changed to PROVEA in 2004.

Currently PROVEA brings together companies that supply the restaurant, bakery, pastry and ice-cream sectors and, in general, all professional food services. PROVEA member companies deliver a wide range of products (delicatessen, chocolates, small utensils, decorative articles, blonde lace, boxes, etc.) and services (computers, logistics, storage, consultancy, etc.) for workshops and points of sale in the abovementioned sectors.

GOALS. Its mission is to defend the collective interests of its member companies by attaining the following goals:

  • To be the sector’s forum for exchanging opinions: Meetings are held on a regular basis to discuss the sector’s most common problems and to undertake joint actions.

To that end PROVEA is a member of FICOP, a federation which brings together ASEMAC (Asociación de Masas Congeladas – Frozen Dough Association), AFESPAN (Asociación Española de Fabricantes de Hornos y Maquinaria para Panadería y Pastelería – Spanish Association of Bakery and Pastry Ovens and Machinery Manufacturers) and ASPRIME (Asociación de Fabricantes de Materias Primas y Mejorantes para la Industria de la Panadería, Pastelería y Heladería – Association of Raw Material and Improvement Agent Manufacturers for the Baking, Pastry and Ice-cream Industry).
