Da Silva, the owner of Heladería 1000 sabores which twice won the Guinness record for the most number of ice cream flavours in the world in 1991 and 1996, said she hopes to cooperate with Venezuela-Vietnam Chamber of Commerce (CAVENVIET) to open a restaurant system promoting Vietnamese cuisine as well as Hanoi’s ice cream in Caracas and states in Venezuela.
