Chef Ajay Chopra, Campaign Ambassador, More Than Food India said, “I am glad to be a part of the More Than Food campaign, it has been an amazing journey so far. As the campaign ambassador, I have had the opportunity to be a part of extremely interesting activities like the Virtual Tasting Dinner and of course the Olive Oil Food Lab. It has been great to see people getting curious to learn more about the different products from the EU. Being a connoisseur of European produce myself, I make sure only quality ingredients are served to my consumers and what better than using oils from countries like Portugal and Spain, which are safe and healthy to consume while keeping their authenticity intact.”
