Continuing with the objective of continuous improvement in terms of sustainability, Bilbao Convention Bureau presents a course organised by BasqueTour, the public company of the Basque Government’s Department for Tourism, Commerce and Consumer Affairs: “MANAGEMENT OF SUSTAINABLE RESTAURANTS IN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY”.

BasqueTour organises this training particularly directed at members of Euskadi Gastronomika, a network formed of restaurants, bars, shops and other culinary establishments which comply with a series of demanding criteria and commitment in search of excellence in the products and cuisine which are the identity of Euskadi.

As well as the training, we urge you to join the culinary network if interested.

Taking sustainability and the circular economy as the main line, it addresses areas from the catering point of view. We consider it will therefore be most beneficial for all the different stakeholders from the sector.

Directed at establishment managers, chefs, head waiting staff or professionals interested in the sustainable management of an establishment. Information about the course:
