Poma de Girona distributes 300 kg of apples to local health workers

The producers of the Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) Poma de Girona, formed by the companies Girona Fruits, Giropoma Costa Brava and Fructícola Empordà, last week distributed 300 kg of apples to health professionals in the area. This solidarity action, in support of the tireless effort of health workers in combatting the coronavirus (COVID-19), took place at the Doctor Josep Trueta University Hospital in Girona, and at the hospitals of Figueres and Palamós.

The apples they have brought are from the four varieties (Golden, Red Delicious, Gala and Granny Smith) of the PGI Poma de Girona, which has almost 80 producer partners representing a total of 1,700 productive hectares. Poma de Girona does not rule out repeating this action in the coming weeks in other health centres of the province.
