Volume 1: What's for Lunch?
Colombia

Traditional Colombian Lunch

Mitsubishi Electric de Colombia (MELCOL)
February 2018

Juliana Hernández Suárez (pictured below) first joined MELCOL as a trainee, then after gaining around 10 years' experience in the Human Resources department—and as a psychologist—was appointed Training and Recruitment Chief.

For lunch today Juliana enjoyed sancocho trifásico ('three meats sancocho'), a very traditional Colombian dish which is a kind of stew made from meat such as pork or chicken, potatoes and herbs, like coriander. She enjoyed eating out with her colleagues today.
Juliana has a particular liking for seafood. Rather than having one favourite restaurant that she frequents, she really likes to explore new restaurants.
"Today's meal of sancocho trifásico was very delicious and satisfying", says Juliana.

Juliana usually brings her lunch from home and eats it at the office so she can enjoy spending time with her colleagues. For instance, she might cook rice, chicken or other meat, because she finds it very easy to cook.

Juliana works at Mitsubishi Electric's main office in Colombia.
