* A country strategy led by CACORE in Costa Rica at the time.
Innovation with cultural identity, fair trade, fresh products, native, with sustainable practices, and above all, with nutritional balance: these is what the Costa Rican National Sustainable and Healthy Plan is looking for, coordinated by the Costa Rican Chamber of Restaurants and Related (CACORE). The initiative strengthens the productive clusters, impacting the general population and the foreign tourists that visit our country.
This new plan aims to position the Costa Rican gastronomy as a component of the "Costa Rican" touristic destination additional to the other attractions our county has, using native and regional plants in the elaboration of its gastronomic menus.
In this way, our Costa Rican gastronomy can be positioned in the national and international levels with a diverse, sustainable, healthy and creative offer, promoting at the end the productive clusters that will benefit the producers and entrepreneurs, and with that, it will help boost the local and national economy,
Some important parts that this plan incorporates are: the conservation of the edible biodiversity resources, sustainable and organic production of native foods, innovative and traditional uses, national and touristic consumers with better health and wellbeing, and a higher human development (better positioned destination), said míster Alejandro Madrigal, Executive Director of CACORE.
When you visit our country is very possible that you will find a restaurant, cafeteria or even a small food place somewhere in the rural area that already fulfill this "attributes" as an added value and therefore, you will be a part of this gastronomic cluster.
