The social power of food:

Empowering communities & building capacities

Welcome to Mérida! The capital city of Yucatan State will host the 2020 Annual General Meeting of Délice Network.

A first gathering

This will be the first time Mérida is showcased to the Délice Network, following their admission in the network in 2017.

As an important leisure and business tourism destination, Mérida is working strongly to place food as a central part of it's offer. Thanks to it's Mayan heritage, Yucatecan food is unique in the country and worth preserving. Along with all partners and the CANIRAC Restaurant Asociation, the City of Mérida is strongly engaged in this topic.

During the Délice AGM, the delegates will be invited to meet with the important partners involved in the preservation & transmission of this food culture.

Discussing social initiatives around food & gastronomy

Through discussions and debates, the guests from around the world will be sharing expertise and knowledge on the topic "The Social Power of Food: Building Capacities and Empowering Communities".

Mérida has developed many projects to facilitate the social inclusion and economic development of the vulnerable Mayan communities around the city. Food & Gastronomy is considered a strong trigger to open this ancient culture to the world while offering to the communities income-generating activities and empowerment.


The Program & Registration form will be released in May. Please contact us for more information
