The Mediterranean Diet Foundation has successfully organised the Capitalization Event for the MedDiet European Project, within the framework of the SmartFruit Congress, held in Barcelona on March 11th and 12th.
A success guaranteed by the presence of more than 780 professionals of the fruit sector on the international level who attended this forum and have gotten to know the values and contents of the MedDiet project.
Diana Julia, responsible for international projects of the Foundation, presented to the fruit sector and a significant number of international importers synergies created by the countries of the Euro-Mediterranean area to promote a lifestyle and food based on seasonal produce in proximity, quality, education and consumer education…etc.
All training workshops being conducted in different schools of the Mediterranean coast were presented as well as the Mediterranean Diet label project certifying restaurants, which is currently underway, under the MedDiet project.
During the SmartFruit congress the Mediterranean Diet Foundation attended numerous accessions and signatures of support for the MedDiet project, since the values that it disseminates are a reference and a model to follow.
Fruit is a fundamental part of the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid, as explained by Dr. Ramon Estruch, Scientific President of the Mediterranean Diet Foundation and driver of the Predimed study.
Dr. Estruch explained the benefits that eating fruit daily provides the human organism.
This initiative has been realised by the support of the Department of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries, Food and Environment of the Generalitat of Catalonia and Prodeca, organizers of the SmartFruit IPM International Congress.
