Sustainability as Part of Vallarta Nayarit Gastronómica

The organizers claim that the festival, hosted at the Sheraton Buganvilias Resort & Convention Center, will be for all. They state that it will be “an edition of hope and trust in returning back to normal.” Then they continued, “So that both our gastronomic and touristic industries advance strongly and firmly.” This next edition will center around sustainability, one of the first events of its kind to do so. A few days ago, Carlos Elizondo and Consuelo Elipe, the CEOs of the event, signed the initiative along with Claudia Vanessa Pérez Lamas, the director of evaluation and continuation of Jalisco’s government, and other representatives.


Additionally, everything will be covered live by multiple national and international communication platforms, giving those who cannot be at the festival in person a chance to also experience the event remotely.

A once-in-a-lifetime experience for food and cuisine lovers, it will combine fine dining, world-renown chefs and speakers, and traditions of Mexico’s Pacific coast. Furthermore, this VNG’s focus on sustainability will make a great impact that will hopefully influence locals and foreigners alike, spreading awareness and creating a more sustainable food culture.
