The event took place from 12-14 Novem­ber. “The Beirut Cook­ing Fes­ti­val is an im­por­tant op­por­tu­nity for small-scale co­op­er­a­tives to show­case their de­li­cious prod­ucts. This will help them to ex­pand their mar­ket reach and in­crease their in­comes,” com­mented Dr. Jane Glea­son, chief of par ty of LIVCD. Through their par tic­i­pa­tion in the fes­ti­val, these busi­nesses have dis­played their prod­ucts dur ing tast­ing ses­sions, in­creased ex­po­sure, and gen­er­ated ad­di­tional sales.
