New 4 hectare greenhouse to harvest 600,000 kilos
Spain: Huesca group boost Barbastro pink tomatoes marketing
The arrival of the Correas Group to Somontano was considered "a historic milestone" in the development of Barbastro's pink tomato; a registered trademark which in recent years has already become available in the country's main markets and in gourmet stores. Correas also plans to enter the international market, marketing this tomato in the UK.
The setting up of this greenhouse will lead to a 50% increase in the production of Barbastro pink tomatoes; that is, the total volume marketed will reach 2,200,000 kilos next season and will meet all the demand.
The project is expected to last for two months. The goal of Grupo Correas is to plant in April to obtain the first tomatoes in July.
More than 40 people will work in the greenhouse. They will be seasonal jobs, with just some five or six people working there permanently; however, Correas' objective is to continue investing in the farm and build a canning plant in a second stage. Also, as Esteban Andrés said, there are projects for the asparagus of Barbastro and other vegetables which could also be grown and marketed by this company, thus extending the season throughout the year.
