Jugería Peruana

Based on the “juguero” of peruvian markets as an alchemist and the combined
flavoured juices displayed on their blackboards as stellar products, the concept
of Jugería peruana was created based on five our most emblematic fruits,
lucuma, cherimoya, granadilla, tuna and mango. With them a world of fantasy
and flavour is set within a language of mucho humor, a great design and the
highest standard of service aimed at making the market of fruit juice a viable
alternative to the ever growing coffeehouse market. Within the trademark
portfolio this is the healthy alternative for Peruvians, without sacrificing flavour
or fun.

Chifa Peruano

In Lima there are 2,000 chifas (Peruvian Chinese Restaurants). All of them
serve great food but have serious conceptual deficiencies. This is why we have
developed this chifa with a great decoration, great ambiance, unmatched
service and with the same food of the Peruvian Chifa which is embellished by
little sparks of creativity.
The inauguration is set for 2009. Its intended to revive the concept of the
neighbourhood chifa in Peru and to internationalize as chifa all Peruvian
Chinese food.

Chicón De Los Andes

Finally we have started the creation process of the first Nativa Hotel in the
“Quebrada de Chicon” in the sacred valley of the incas. There we will build the
first luxury boutique hotel that will, additionally, be 100% ecological. A hotel
owned orchard that will be administered by Chicon’s own comuneros, a place
with no walls that can send isolation messages to the community. The Hotel will
develop a residue treatment plant and the elaboration of its own mineral water
to avoid the consumption of glass.
Hotel Nativa will be home to the best service of the country, the most coherent
design with its surroundings, the best cuisine using 100% of the zone’s
produce. The community will be benefited with a percentage of sales and with
the promotion of a new standard in the region where extreme comfort and
luxury live hand in hand with a solid respect for the environment, customs and
people that historically own the area.

Social Projects.-

Cooking school promoted by our organization. All the professors belong to our
organization. The best culinary teachings directed to young men and women

zones. There young men and women are learning not only to be great cooks
but also to be leaders and examples in their community that we all can be

Due to the earthquake and via many different promoters, we developed a
restaurant school in Pisco aimed at young pisqueneans that want to take
advantage of the growing hotel development of the Paracas area with teachings
that use the natural resources of the area in a restaurant that aspires to set a
new standard of quality in the area.
Thanks to this agreement, SENATI committed itself to open 10 cooking schools
in all Peru while the association opens its doors to students as interns and to
teachers in order to have them be permanently assisted. APEGA will also
intervene in the study plan design. The first school opened in 2008. The first
school for waiters should open this year, in order to guarantee the future of
service in Peru as a vacation destination.
