Teruel ham, bread and olive oil for Trump and Kim Jong-Un
22 May 2018 @ 23:44

TERUEL is seeking to aid peace talks between US president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un – three of its star products are being shipped over to Singapore in time for the historic bilateral summit on June 12.

Home-made wood-kiln baked bread from Castelserás, Teruel ham, and oil from the official olive-growing region Bajo Aragón ('Lower Aragón') will be mailed to south-east Asia via the Singaporean Consul in Madrid, and may or may not end up on the table when Trump and Jong-Un dine together, says Ricardo Mosteo, chairman of the official production label Jamón de Teruel ('Teruel Ham').

“It's an initiative which seeks to put ingredients on the negotiation table – in an informal way – that inspire happiness in those around them,” Mosteo says.

“And it wouldn't be a bad idea for them to be served up to the presidents, since they are very healthy and olive oil especially is excellent for controlling blood pressure and reducing the risk of heart attacks.”
