Andres Valencia (left), emails, “Last year, Diego Pacheco, MBA’16 (right), and I founded Cociel. We are shown with our intern, Karina Del Moral ’18. Cociel helps local Latin American food producers, who source sustainably, enter U.S. and international markets through virtual reality and technology. Why? Because the large ‘Latin’ brands aren’t a true reflection of our food and culture. Also because the local gourmet food producers behind the best flavors in Latin America, hardworking people who have an impact in their communities, have limited access to foreign markets and technological advances.”
