Since the chef David Hertz started Gastromotiva in 2006, he felt the need to create an open and
multi-dimensional space for the co-creation of human-centred solutions related to crucial topics on food and gastronomy. In the last years, this sensation has grown stronger and different opportunities have presented themselves. One of them was the Ashoka Globalizer Acceleration Program in which David had the opportunity to meet partners coming from different backgrounds. There, a group started to work together in order to co-create the Social Gastronomy Movement (SGM).
In January 2018, in collaboration with Cargill, Gastromotiva announced the Social Gastronomy Movement during a special breakfast session at the World Food Program tent during the World Economic Forum in Davos.
