The agreement with Coruña Cociña, which was presented this morning at the gastronomy fair Fórum Gastronómico, has been designed with the aim of boosting local gastronomy by promoting and supporting activities that place the city of A Coruña on the map as a first class gastronomic destination.
Pablo Pizarro, president of Coruña Cociña, expressed his gratitude on behalf of the organization. The Bocanegra chef sees the agreement as a long-term relationship that will benefit the A Coruña brand, due to the support for local produce, for catering in general, and the work carried out by catering professionals.
Mónica Vizcaíno, Head of Marketing of Hijos de Rivera, stated that “talent, creativity, passion and the desire to innovate are part of our company’s DNA and, as they are the values that Coruña Cociña transmits, I believe that we make an unbeatable team”.
