Peruvian exportable products, such as super foods and Pisco, were showcased at Europe's most important gastronomic summit, Madrid Fusion 2020, which took place in the Spanish capital from January 13 to 15.
Through the industry brands Super Foods Peru and Pisco, Spirit of Peru, the Peruvian stand promoted the benefits and quality of exportable food and products from the food sector. Likewise, the Peruvian stand, that was active during the three days of the event, offered tastings of delicious dishes from the coast, highlands and jungles of Peru, becoming the epicenter of the event.
"The fact that we have been chosen for the eighth consecutive year as the World's Leading Culinary Destination only makes us want to continue promoting our gastronomy in international markets, and an event as renowned as Madrid Fusion, which brings together thousands of professionals from all over the planet, could not be an exception," said PROMPERÚ's Executive President, Luis Torres Paz.
