Bull fighting meat ambassador: the chef Mario Sandoval, two Michelin Stars Restaurante Coque (Madrid), FACYRE* presiden and National Gastronomy Prize.
"There´s no excellent dish, there´s an excellent product. And when it comes to fighting bull meat, we are looking at the great unknown delicatessen in this country. The fighting bull meat is a very healthy and natural meat, meat coming from an animal that lives in total freedom for four years all the while feeding on natural products."
Fighting bull meat dossier: the value of sustainability
The Fighting Bull Breeders Association, being aware of the value of the fighting bull meat as an interesting food product, pushed a project forward that ultimately materialised in the signing of a a cooperation agreement with the Chairman of the Spanish Federation of Associations of Cooks and Confectioners (FACYRE).
This initial step was later developed into a larger project the goal of which is obtaining the “100% Fighting Bull Indigenous Breed” seal of approval by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fishing food and Environment (MAPAMA) and with it the subsequent acknowledgement of the twofold purpose of the breed: Meat and Bullfighting, an essential requirement to face the defense of the fighting breed in the Common Agricultural Policy of the EU.
