Between April 16 and 21, 2019, Ficosterra took the opportunity to participate in the fourteenth edition of the International Exhibition of Agriculture of Morocco (SIAM), one of the most important fairs in northern Africa where the latest technology trends in the agricultural sector are displayed.
The fair was held in the city of Meknes and there, under the shade of the Spanish flag of the ICEX, Ficosterra presented its biofertilizers made from algae and regenerating microorganisms.
SIAM has become a prominent fair in Morocco whereby almost one million visitors from more than 60 countries come to learn about the newest information on food safety, equipment, fertilizers, agri chemicals and agri nutrients, among other offers. According to the data of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Moroccan agriculture represents 13.6% of its GDP, being the main source of income for the country. Also, they point out that the sale of Spanish agricultural products to Morocco grew 11% in 2018 according to the ICEX. The Moroccan market is one of the main ones outside the EU for Spanish exports and Ficosterra, aware of this, seeks to infiltrate this market with its innovative, sustainable fertilizers and biofertilizers.
