February 2012 La Fundación del Jamón Serrano Español took part in a conference held at the Carolina Foundation Madrid Student Residence on "The Mediterranean Diet: Common Heritage of Mankind", part of the Foundation's "Living in Spain" program.
During the conference, which included the participation of one hundred Carolina Foundation scholarship holders from 16 South American countries who are studying in Madrid, José Ramón Godoy, general secretary of the Fundación Jamón Serrano, described the principles of the Jamón Serrano production process, including existing quality control procedures and the nutritional benefits of including Jamón Serrano in our diet.
Following the informative portion of the conference, led by Mercedes Alcover, general secretary of the Carolina Foundation, the students were able to ask questions of the guest participants, after which they took part in a Jamón Serrano, olive oil and wine tasting session.
This activity falls within the "Living in Spain" program, the objective of which is to acquaint the participants of the Foundation's study program with the social, political and cultural reality of Spain through various cultural and social activities organized in collaboration with other institutions.
