Spanish vegetable plant

This article was originally published in Foodnews

A FACTORY producing semi-processed vegetables in Almería, Spain is to begin processing in the next few months. Alcoex Mediterráneo has been given the go ahead by Andalucía's regional government. Trials of tomate frito (passata) at the plant have gone well. Coexphal, the Association of Fruit and Vegetable Producers in Almería, is behind the initiative and has pledged €5 million to get the plant on line. It hopes to develop the semi-processing industry, with new products and technical innovations. The factory will start processing around 12 000 tonnes of fresh produce, mainly tomato, pepper, courgette, aubergine and lettuce.
