A delegation from the European Parliament, accompanied by the Councilor of Agriculture, Rural Development, Population and Territory of the Government of Extremadura, Begoña García, and several general directors of her department, has visited the Tany Nature fruit and vegetable center of the municipality of Zurbarán, where it has had a chance to learn about the reality of the fruit sector in the region and the conditions that Extremadura's fruit producers must face every day, "mostly due to market changes, the increase in production costs and the stagnation of prices," as pointed out by the company in a press release.
Upon arrival at the fruit and vegetable center, they were received by Atanasio Naranjo, CEO of Tany Nature, and the rest of the management staff, as well as the president of the FVPO Frugalia, Isidro Donoso.
The visit has served to highlight that Extremadura "needs everyone's support to find its place in the global agricultural market," says Tany Nature.
In the opinion of Extremadura's producers, MEPs must promote "social peace" by legislating in favor of the agricultural sector and, therefore, "investing in the sustainability of the rural world."
The European delegation, guided by José María Naranjo, has also had a chance to visit the facilities, learning about the process that the fruit follows from field to fork, as well as about the implementation of the latest technologies on the part of companies like Tany Nature in order "to meet the needs of the most demanding markets."
