Gastronomy & Local Economy
In this episode, we invite you to join a 30-minute discussion about the connection between Gastronomy & Local Economy. During this webcast, you will get a better picture of the relationship between the chefs and the producer.
Dhurata Thanasi Daneri, an Albanian sustainable food systems activist and consultant, will share her experience on how a better local chain can be built in respect of the environment. She’ll share why she believes that this relationship is crucial in improving the local economy and keeping the wheel of the agri-sector moving forward, while also positively impacting businesses.
