Globalizing Peruvian customs so that the World consumes what peruvians have invented, not only as primary resources but, foremost, as exclusive products such as pisco sour, tiradito, cebiche, huancaina. All of this is done in order to generate a new value for the Peru trademark in general. Operating Trademarks.- ASTRID Y GASTON Cocina peruana High end peruvian restaurant.

LA MAR Cebicheria Peruana Restaurant under the generic, cebicheria brand, that is, next to Astrid y Gaston, the second slip that should open the way for Peruvian gastronomy at the highest level so as to facilitate the advancement of all Peruvian concepts around the World and, therefore, the globalization of the exclusive Peruvian products, the exportation of our culture and, in sum, elevating our country trademark in general.

PANCHITA Parrilla Peruana Panchita is the place of Peruvian BBQ. Home of our anticuchos and showcasing Peruvian cuts and typical Peruvian cooking methods, Panchita is a place where fun meets the Peruvian Grill. Cities where Panchita Operates Lima LA PEPA 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.

This year we inaugurate: Cities where La Pepa Operates Cuzco and Arequipa Trademarks Opening this year. MADAME TUSAN 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. NATIVA 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.- PACHACUTEC UNIVERSITY Cooking school promoted by our organization. All the professors belong to our organization. The best culinary teachings directed to young men and women that come from new Pachacutec, one of the country’s most impoverished 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 successful. SCHOOL RESTAURANT IN PISCO 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. APEGA SENATI AGREEMENT 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.
