Manager of Sensory and Consumer Insight, Firmenich Flavor Division

" I manage the Sensory and Consumer Insight area of the Firmenich Flavor Division for the whole of Latin America and the universe of taste is part of my current job with focus on innovations in taste supported by food science and engineering, consumer science and marketing.

When I decided to attend the HEG program my key objective was to develop my knowledge of gastronomy and on a personal level I wanted to spend a pleasant time in France, a country I admire enormously and where the gastronomy is a pillar of the culture.

The HEG program exceeded all my expectations. It was total immersion into the world of Taste & Knowledge together with important relationship building experiences with my HEG colleagues, teachers and professionals.

I would say that this program brought fresh perspective and a holistic view of gastronomy - from traditional to creative cuisine, the experience of savoring “terroir” products, the sensation of tasting wines and champagnes, the art of colors, textures and sounds from different  environments, the understanding of the pragmatic link with science, technology and, social and economic disciplines.

It was a great opportunity providing also new insights and innovations to be applied to the market where I work today as well in my career, with a delightful experience of the sense of taste ".
