Lucas P.

Medellin, Antioquia, Colombia

Hola! I'm Lucas, a biologist, strategy consultant and a food entrepenuer!

I'm a local whom lived abroad for 10 years and returned to create a social impact company in Colombia

I'm very passionate about the transversality of food and the power it has to bring people together, create an identity, sense of belonging and to empower people to live a healthier life.

I feel honored to be able to share Colombia with you, tell you about my research trips to find out about Colombian's almost forgotten foods and culinary traditions, and to tell you stories about our gastronomic awakening! Colombia is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world, and that is reflected in the foods we have, but our violent past has hidden or food culture, which is more than beans and arepas.

We also have the highest variety of fruits and tuber vegetables, as well as hummingbirds and much more.

Let's have a look at this other side of Colombia: FOOD, and all the layers that are behind this word, including farmers who are protecting or native seeds, promissory foods that are almost being forgotten, ancient technologies used to grow and cook food, and much more.
