Fully Funded UNWTO Global Gastronomy Tourism Startup Competition in Spain has opened the application. The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), in collaboration with the Basque Culinary Center, presents the First Global Gastronomy Tourism Startup Competition.

Gastronomy tourism stimulates entrepreneurship and the generation of new companies and organizations that necessarily affect other industries transversally and fosters values such as:

  • Sustainability based on maintaining a balance between economic growth and gastronomic culture and heritage
  • The quality of initiatives from production to experience, along the entire tourism value chain
  • Authentic communication and a coherent narrative of gastronomic offerings with the participation of all the stakeholders of the sector; from chefs to the media
  • Cooperation among all actors throughout the entire value chain of the gastronomic and tourism sector
  • Authenticity by highlighting cultural heritage, local products and cultural values

Gastronomic tourism is in itself, a stimulus to creativity, innovation and sustainable growth where startups with disruptive and open visions can propose new future scenarios that have a positive and transversal impact on various sectors so that they can collaborate and contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
