The president of the Federation of Culinary Associations of the Republic of Cuba (Facrc), Eddy Fernández, said that the visit is scheduled from April 1st to 6th, during which they will contact their Cuban counterparts and other directors of the country’s recreational sector.


He said that the group will be composed of WACS Continental Director for the Americas, Claudio Ferrer; Secretary General Cornelia Volino and the organisation’s director Ragnar Fridriksson.


During their stay, the executives will meet with Cuban ministers of Interior Trade and Tourism, Mary Blanca Ortega and Manuel Marrero, respectively.

The agenda of the visit will also include knowing the potential and steps of the progress of Cuban cuisine as a benchmark of national heritage and evaluate the creation of a team of young Cuban chefs to face the WACS.
