The term HORECA
is an acronym for HO
staurantes and CA
terings that comes from the Netherlands. Today, its use has been extended to most countries in Europe.
In contrast to its great social and economic importance, the HORECA
sector is very little known, and there is hardly any information or data ordered.
However, the sector of distributors to HORECA
is formed by more than 4,000 companies in Spain, they give direct employment to more than 80,000 people and invoice 17,600 million euros. That is why it is essential for the supply of the more than 360,000 hotels that we have in Spain.
