Conversation: Eugenio Pecho Solis – COGEPAN Organization – FOVIDA


From September 9 to 18 the Iniciativa Papas Andinas – along with many local partners – participated at the 2011 Mistura Gastronomic Fair in Lima where farmers from all over Peru came to showcase their produce.

Below is the audio (in Spanish) of the interview with Mr. Eugenio Pecho Solís from the COGEPAN organization that works together with FOVIDA (Fomento de la Vida).

Mr. Eugenio talks us about the characteristics of his organization and their interest on participating in the Mistura Fair in search for a broader market for their potato varieties.

They came to the fair to exhibit their potatoes with special characteristics for boiling and the chip industry.
