Companies in the organic sector

Catalonia is the leading area in Spain in the processing and trading of organic agri-food products.

The significant growth experienced by the productive sector in the last few years created the conditions for a consolidated expansion of the manufacturing industry. This contributes to a further added value of the products, in addition to the intrinsic added value of this type of production. Lleida is the region with the greatest surface area registered as organic land, and Barcelona has the greatest concentration of processing companies.

Ecological agricultural production is a production and processing system aimed at obtaining top-quality food, while respecting the environment and using no synthetic chemicals (hormones, herbicides, chemical seasonings, pesticides, etc.)

The organic agri-food sector has a very high export potential, mainly to extremely demanding markets concerned with all issues related to environmental preservation, health and food safety.
