AECOC to pay tribute to sector’s key role
The entire value chain of the sector demonstrated, even in the toughest moments of the crisis, its efficiency and professionalism, guaranteeing at all times the supply of fruit and vegetables to the whole of Spanish society and even to other countries, given its important exporting character. For this reason, the annual Congress of Fruits and Vegetables is transformed this year into an act of recognition to the value chain of the sector.
AECOC will bring together the main managers of the sector in a face-to-face event that, upon personal invitation, will be held with strict control measures for perfect compliance with the safety protocols set by the health authorities.
AECOC is the Association of Manufacturers and Distributors Companies, one of the largest business organisations in the country and the only one in which the industry and the distribution of mass consumption work together to develop good practices and technological standards that help companies to be more efficient and competitive, adding value to the consumer.
It encompasses both the largest companies and small and medium-sized companies and represents sectors as diverse as food and beverages, textiles, electronics, hardware and DIY, health and hospitality, among others. It has more than 30,000 associated companies whose joint turnover represents close to 20% of the national GDP.
