The Soroptimist Award is part of an international call by the United Nations General Assembly to create a more ecological local food system.

Daphne Theunissen, president of SI Costa del Sol said: “The reaction from the jury, participants and guests over the last two years has been very positive and SI Costa del Sol has decided to continue, because it is a positive way to create awareness and also very practical, following the candidates and winners from the previous editions everybody is able to contribute to a more sustainable society.”
