The act of eating is no longer just a simple activity, it has become a complex sensory experience that has evolved together with diners, who are currently more informed and seek to know the market and the origin of the products. Therefore, Expoalimentaria is committed to educating in the art of tasting and pairing various products of the fair.

Expert tasters are responsible for guiding the audience in the process of tasting through the senses and discover the characteristics of products such as olive oil, wine, pisco, coffee, cocoa, among others, and thus, pairing the food with the perfect drink.
