President’s letter

Dear Colleagues,

We are near the end of 2021. We thank each of you for supporting us with your participation in our first ALAFAVE virtual congress. It is our pleasure to announce the positive results and insights earned from this new experience, some of the highlights are:

– The reunions with Dr. Vela experts were very successful; we are considering this to be part of our workflow ALAFAVE 2022-2023.
– Thanks to all our suppliers for their participation and support, they provided us not only with their knowledge but enriched our experience and created a very productive meeting.
– The virtual congress provided an opportunity to not only seeing each other but to learn from our current experiences and it also encouraged all of us to continue strengthening the candle industry every day.
– We shared the latest news on raw material shortages, most importantly the increase in prices and shortages in paraffin due to the worldwide freight cost increases.

The Board of Directors has scheduled monthly meetings to determine the agenda and budget for the 2022-2023 cycle. We invite you to submit your questions and/or concerns and all your ideas to [email protected] before October 15 th.

We will be celebrating the 7 th World Candle Congress and Expo in New Orleans 2022 USA from May 16 th -20 th. Save the date and God willing I’ll have the opportunity to personally shake hands with each one of you.

Wishing you the best during this World Candle Month, I hope you sell a lot! As this tends to be a very favorable season for the candle industry.

Kind regards,
Gustavo Delgado
