Female Entrepreneurship was promoted in the Algarve on International Women’s Day by the Algarve Women’s Business Network Group at their meeting on Friday, 8th March, at Vila Vita Parc Resort & Spa in Porches. The meeting was organised by CNERGIA – Creative Solutions, and was attended by over three dozen entrepreneur women in the Algarve, portuguese and from abroad, all having taken a contribution – food, hygiene product or clothing – for Casa Nossa Senhora da Conceição in Portimão.
The International Women’s Day was the theme for this meeting presented to the female community – new projects, products and ideas of success.
The host of the event was the five-star resort Vila Vita Parc in Porches, who gave a warm welcome to all participants with a welcome cocktail, and hosted a visit to its facilities, including the spa and winery located eight meters underground, where wines of great value are stored.
The “A Casa da Isabel” contributed its remarkable sweets and ‘MYR’ with its liqueurs served in an original way. Luísa Teixeira’s delicious jams from “Balsa – Conservas Artesanais” (Maragota, Olhão), the Monterosa’s olive oils, also from Olhão, and the wines, cookies and jams from Herdade dos Grous, in Alentejo were also presented. The Slow Food Algarve movement also made a fascinating presentation to participants regarding the benefits and attractions of this type of nourishment. Chef Augusto Lima speedily converted the products from the Basket PROVE from the agricultural producer Carla Moreira, Horta da Torre (Silves), in a live demonstration of Slow Food cooking, showcasing the Algarve’s flavors. He also presented the project “MAIS GOSTO – F&B Consultancy”, the latest project of CNERGIA.
To finalize, Ondina Santos graced the event with her fado soul. All this was recorded on video by ETIC_Algarve, with a news report from LocalVisãoTV and photography by the media partner Sul Informação.
This event was a productive and different way of celebrating the International Women’s Day, promoting networking among females from ten companies/regional entities, all gathered in one place – a living proof that entrepreneurship and willingness to achieve success do not fade, despite the hard times.
