Theoretical and practical training on denominations of origin and distinctive quality marks, implemented in Carmen de Viboral, Antioquia - Swiss-Colombian Project for Intellectual Property (COLIPRI), Swisscontact

Mission:

After the success in 2016 of the first training session, that addressed the process of certification and the associated socioeconomic impacts, Swisscontact asked Insuco to implement a second training session, intended for private, public and academic sectors and focusing on the challenges and opportunities of denominations of origin applied to artisanal and agri-food products in Colombia.

Results:

Insuco developed and implemented a 1 week training program in Carmen de Viboral, department of Antioquia, Colombia. The training gathered more than 30 national and international actors and included the realisation of practical workshops focusing on an artisanal product typical of the region, that possesses a denomination of origin.
