Grufesa is making a clear commitment to this model of sustainability, health and minimal environmental impact. Four years ago it began a pilot project with 15 acres and now there are 440 with clean, sustainable and environmentally friendly production. Last year, over 33% of its analyses showed zero residue. “100% of our crops follow a very ambitious project called Bayer Food Chain Partnership, which requires the highest standards in using conventional pesticides and biological products to control pests and disease,” says Carlos Cumbreras, Grufesa manager. In addition to this, Grufesa is involved in a project called NNTT Abiogrin, using natural microbiological constituents present in the soil to enhance the crop’s health and get more productive plants. Grufesa is clearly committed to innovating with varieties; they are carrying out interesting research projects of their own to provide greater value for their customers. With exports to 17 countries in Europe, Grufesa’s trend is to even up the percentages of shipments to each destination and open up new ones. The prospecting in Dubai and Panama has been an interesting experience and will be taken further.
