Nine companies from the Levant of Almería specialized in intensive open ground agriculture have joined forces in Agrintal, a new association to defend their mutual interests.
Thus, Agrícola Navarro de Haro, Primaflor, Agrupapulpí, Viveros Mediapalm, Peregrín, Cuadraspania, Hnos. Chumbos, SAT Agroalmanzora and Viveros Citroplant make up this new institution that has joined the Business Confederation of the Province of Almería, ASEMPAL, because they understand that this is the best way to have the weight that corresponds to them. Combined, they have more than 6,600 workers, 16,000 hectares of crops, a production of over 527 million kilos per year and more than 465 million Euro in turnover.
Luis Docavo Alberti, from Primaflor, is the new president of Agrintal and has also been in charge of presenting it. The event was attended by representatives of all nine companies, who explained the reason for this new initiative. The main objective is to put the intensive open ground agricultural sector in a position that will allow them to face new projects, have a legal framework to offer effective solutions and, of course, put aside the competition between them and establish synergies for the benefit of everyone, since there are many open fronts, with the main one probably being the water deficit in the area.
This new association of companies has a wide range of high-quality products, 51% of which are sold in the domestic market and 49% abroad, mainly in Europe, but also in Canada, Australia or Singapore.
