It is my pleasure to extend my season greetings. I believe this year will have an unusual meaning; nevertheless, I’m confident that we’ll be happy to wrap up a year that has been challenging. It has been a little over 20 years since a group of entrepreneurs took the lead to create an Association that included candle manufacturers and suppliers. They all had one goal in mind; to promote the Latin American candle industry. It is incredible how time has witnessed the growth of many friendships, businesses, insights, and never-ending great stories. Thanks to the relentless effort of the board of directors and the support of our membership, ALAFAVE is a solid reference for the candle industry and the associations related to it. Unfortunately, we are experiencing adverse times; for the first time in 20 years, we had to cancel our annual congress in 2020.
