Spain: Almagro aubergine to be protected to ensure future viability

The regional government of Castile-La Mancha will include the genetic variety 'Aubergine of Almagro' in the Rural Development Programme (RDP) to protect it and ensure the crop's future viability. This is excellent news for the growers, distribution companies, and especially for the Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) and was announced by the president of Castile-La Mancha, Emiliano García-Page, while visiting two canning factories accompanied by the Councillor of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Development, Francisco Martínez Arroyo.

The president has toured the facilities of the aubergine processing plant Vicente Malagón, in Almagro, where the Councillor of Agriculture, in a press statement, has stressed the regional government's commitment to a sector that "represents little in terms of volume, but which means a lot in terms of image." He said that "we are talking about a product that carries our image in Castile-La Mancha and which is known across the entire national territory, so we have to keep working to keep it that way."
