Study trips, smart trips

Travelling and analysis
go hand in hand

Analyze the food system of a certain European territory and the role its gastronomic culture plays by visiting food companies of various sizes and international institutions.

Master a method to understand their present strategies and how these intend to deal with current market dynamics; taking into account different aspects like consumption trends, positioning or socio-economic situation.

And during this pandemic, continue to adapt alongside us as we try to create new solutions, like virtually travelling the world, engaging all our senses.
