The Peruvian Commission for the Promotion of Export and Tourism (PROMPERU) announced today that Peru was chosen for the fifth consecutive year as the Best Culinary Destination in the World at the World Travel Awards (WTA) 2016, in a ceremony held in the Maldives.
This recognition, consolidating our position as one of the world’s top gastronomic destinations in the world, would not be possible without the joint effort between the State and the private sector, an alliance that seeks to revalue the entire food production chain.
It should be noted that Peru has consistently edged out other world renowned cuisines such as French, Japanese, Italian, Mexican, Spanish and Thai, among others.
The World Travel Awards have been celebrated for the past 23 years, recognizing and celebrating the food and travel industry from around the word. The WTA are considered the Oscars of Tourism.
It should be recalled that in the regional presentation of the World Travel Awards (WTA), held in July of this year, Peru was picked as top Culinary Destination in South America, another recognition given to the nation for the fifth consecutive time.
