The town of Mula, in the Spanish region of Murcia, is the location chosen for the new fruit and citrus handling plant of the company Iberital Fruit SL, which will generate between 35 and 40 direct jobs and several indirect ones, in addition to fifty jobs for fruit pickers in the field. The planned investment amounts to more than 750,000 Euro and is fully, privately, funded.
According to the owners, the new facilities in Mula "will play a critically important role, since the firm had so far depended, in part, on third parties for the storage, processing, calibration, packaging and shipment of goods."
Iberital Fruit is a company established in 2014 that exports citrus and other fruits to several European countries "and is specialized in immediacy, agility, adaptability and price." The owners have a long experience in the sector. Carmelo Asero is an expert in the management of the industry in this sector and in the marketing of fruit and vegetable products in Italy, and Francisco Sánchez is an agronomist and specialist in marketing and purchasing.
The location of the industrial building is strategic, since it is just two minutes away from the Northwest-Rio Mula highway. It is well connected with Murcia and Alicante, as well as with Almería and Granada, "which will allow us to maintain and strengthen our current client portfolio and use the new infrastructure to improve our competitive capacity and open new lines of business," say the promoters.
