Nut producer groupsThis article was originally published in Foodnews
ARGENTINA’s production minister Juan Manuel Pichetto has overseen the first meeting with members of the Provincial Agricultural Services Programme (PROSAP) to further develop nut production groups in the Lower Valley and Middle Valley. It is hoped that the 20 producer groups will unify the production chain and increase sales of the product. In the Lower Valley there are some 600ha devoted to hazelnuts and 400ha to walnuts. Future production groups will include those for fruit producers or livestock farmers.
