Altino Cristofoletti Jr. and Fernando Tardioli: representing Brazilian franchising in Spain
ABF, as a member of the Ibero-American Federation of Franchises (FIAF), participated in the biannual meeting of the entity, which takes place together with the Spanish fair. The president of ABF, Altino Cristofoletti Junior, and Fernando Tardioli, director and secretary of the legal area of both entities, respectively, presented an overview of the sector in Brazil and the legal issues that involve the Ibero-American region.
According to data from ABF, Spain is the seventh destination country of Brazilian brand exports. There is, therefore, much room for the growth of Brazilian franchising in the Iberian country.
