Caucasus Tastes and Flavours

The Caucasus Business and Development Network (CBDN) and peacebuilding organisation International Alert are holding ‘Caucasus Tastes and Flavours’, an exhibition of Caucasian Brand's tea, honey, cheese and wine, in the square at the Martiros Saryan monument in Yerevan on 10 July 2014 from 4-8pm.

CBDN invites citizens and guests of Yerevan to taste, discuss and give feedback on Caucasian Brands, which are the result of regional cooperation and symbols of an economically connected and cooperating South Caucasus.

During the exhibition, you will have a great opportunity to meet CBDN representatives from different corners of the region and discuss with them the idea behind regional ‘peace cheese’, what role bees play in peacebuilding, how the wonderful aromas of Caucasian teas can contribute to the peaceful transformation of conflict, and much more.
