The seminar is aimed at exchanging experiences and best practices in promoting premium/gourmet food products, and networking between public and private sectors and the University of Cordoba. There were over 120 participants, including students, professors, entrepreneurs and representatives of Cordoba’s local government, who also had the chance to taste fried acheta (house crickets) and fried chrysalis (silkworms) which could be regarded as Thailand’s novel food.
