The first Study tour has been held in Spain from 26th February to 2nd March and it was a great success. Congratulations to the organizers!
With a Spanish rhythm of 24/7 the beneficiaries hardly slept, especially when they had to go to the wholesale market of Valencia at 5am! Juan and his COAG team have chosen case studies which were found of great relevance by the representatives and there was a sustained interest and many many questions. The visit to the Public Health authorities was relevant, because permitted the group to know the legal guidelines for food safety etc. under EU guidelines, for the region.
They had an incredible diversity of visits, places, experiences, and food. Hosts spared no effort to share their experiences of collective organizations with the group and often invited them for food etc.
