Montana Colors was present at the international fair ‘Alimentaria’, one of the most important food and drinks fairs held in Europe, and all thanks to the collaboration with the well known chef Carles Abellán from Barcelona and his new culinary adventure: YANGO Urban Food.
As the name itself indicates, we are talking about a new space which concept is based on the classic catalan sausage ‘yangonissa’, served with bread and with different sauces and toppings picked up from different parts of the world (Shanghai, NY, Perú, Barcelona, among many others).
This is a project which now has become reality, and it is presented with a strong graphic identity through the works of the studio Inocuo The Sign.
Our collaboration as a brand is based on the contribution of some of our spray cans in the form of sauce dispensers used during the live action painting made by Sawe. The writer and artist was in charge of customizing the truck with tags influenced by brazilian pixaçao during its presentation. A perfect moment for putting our new MTN Water Based 300ml cans to the test, and also a great show of how to use our Dabbers filled with Tempera Paint.

Yesterday, without even having had time to digest the start of the new year, during some maintenance work made by another company external to ours we have suffered an accident that has destroyed two paint storages, and parts of a gas installation. Luckily enough the factory stands practically intact.
First and foremost in this moment of concern is the recovery of the two workers which suffered burns during the incident. The two men are employees of the company Pearre from Zaragoza, supplier of ours since more than a decade, which where at the time of the fire conducting maintenance work at the site. Pedro and Ismael! We are with you all the way!
We also want to send out our regards to Carles Cornadó, head of production at Montana, who gave first aid to the wounded and acted fast to alert emergency at the first stages against the fire.
Not to be forgotten is the great work of the Catalan Firefighters , and the Local Police force of Sant Vicenç de Castellet as well as the Mossos d’ Esquadra for their great profesionality and sensibility in such a delicate and tense situation.
Today, Sunday, we are working with all we have to restore normality in our production as fast as possible, and we believe that in a few weeks we will be back at 100%.
We are truly grateful for all the solidarity shown by neighbors, friends, clients, suppliers and at he same time we would like to apologize for this frightening situation and all the discomfort and inconvenience created.
‘A man that never falls over is no braver than the one who gets back up after falling.’
