When you are celiac, lactose-intolerant or follow a diet for religious reasons – halal, kosher, jains – it might be a challenge to eat out, let alone participate in any kind of large event, where the cross-contamination cannot be controlled or avoided.
There is still a misconception when it comes to food allergies, intolerance or food restrictions. It is not a matter of choice or being picky, sometimes our client’s health might be at risk. It is not enough to remove that particular ingredient from a dish, sometimes it’s the flour floating on the air, the use of the same pans or the lack of awareness when it comes to food preparation.
If you follow a particular diet, please rest assured. Andalusia, and Spain as a whole, is very sensitive in this respect. In every restaurant, you will find by law an allergen guide so you know what to order and what should be avoided. Our latest discovery? A gluten-free churros place where they prepare all pieces of bread and churros in a different environment! Not only we pride ourselves in having the best gastronomy around the world, but we also adapt it to every person and dietary requirement.
Also, there are a large of catering companies that, not only are halal and kosher certified but also are able to prepare different meals to cater for everyone, so all attendees can enjoy their stay and be able to do business without a worry.
If you follow a particular diet and are organising a conference, meeting or any other MICE or corporate event, please rest assured your needs will carefully be taken into account by the team at Meridional Events, your DMC in Andalusia and the South of Spain.
