The campus at Villa Dolores bestows on GASMA the identification with its past and the essence of the future project:
In its more than one hundred and fifty years of history, Villa Dolores has starred in very relevant moments, from the agricultural revolution of the late 19th century to the industrial revolution of the 20th century. It is worth noting its socio-economic influence, as well as certain specific events: the citrus production and export, the agricultural cooperativism, the production of lyophilized juices, etc. During the convulsive period of the civil war Villa Dolores acted as embassy of the United States, headquarters of the republican army and later of the pro-Franco one, military hospital, national currency factory, etcetera.
With the strength of the past, Gasma intends to be part of the necessary revolution that the gastronomic world must undergo in the immediate future. From its privileged environment in the center of the Mediterranean arc, cradle of civilizations and cultures, Gasma, hand in hand with UCH-CEU University, is developing a project that based on university training, aims to create an ecosystem that helps develop a space of coexistence, activities and philosophical principles. A project that will push the positioning of Spain in the gastronomic field and of the culinary business at world-wide level, generating a significant support to the strategic tourist sector.
