In 2014 Rimisp was proud to release the first version of Flavors and Delights of Our Ecuador Contest with the Consortium of Provincial Governments of Ecuador (Congope) through its Directorate of Productive Development and the Belgian Development Agency (CTB) through its Northern Ecuador Development Program (PDRN).
The aim prompting this valuable initiative was to "implement, identify and participatively select innovative food products with territorial identity, showing inclusion and sustainability parameters to generate valorization processes." With that in mind, it was estimated favourable the creation of a space of visibility of innovative experiences, as this contest.
So it has been gambled that through this initiative, with a national impact, existing experiences could be enhanced and promoted and creativity and innovation in the food production of Ecuador could be boosted.
