For Bio Sol Portocarrero receiving this award is a recognition of the commitment we acquired in 1999 with environmental sustainability and the organic production that turned us into a pioneer company of organic products and our trajectory of 20 years dedicated exclusively to organic production. In 1999 our company started with the cultivation of organic tomatoes and today has about 260 hectares, about 30 partners and more than 260 workers, and internationally marketed organic products such as Cherry Tomato, Cucumber, Watermelon, Eggplant, Pepper or Calabación. In addition to developing our bioterran product line that triumphs in countries like the United States with the Ecological Gazpacho.
The commitment that Bio Sol Portocarrero has with the fruit and vegetable sector of Almeria, as well as with society in general, goes beyond quality production and good to do daily. And, the company also collaborates with social issues such as, for example, sports races that take place in the province of Almeria. In the month of June, Bio Sol Portocarrero sponsors the Levante Cup, which brings together more than 2000 promises of sport in the Levante Almeriense area.
