Agriculture is synonymous with El Ejido, a town in Almería known worldwide, because this is where the fruit and vegetables relished all over Europe are grown.
Over 40 years devoted to producing fruit and vegetables have made the agricultural sector in this town a leader in the field, by being at the forefront of technology but also by practising a form of production based on respect for the environment to guarantee sustainability.
El Ejido can take pride in being the birthplace of production of the fruit and vegetables that are the essence of the Mediterranean diet, foods that are 100% healthy and are already part of the health-conscious lifestyles of European markets.
Their quality, flavour and properties make them gourmet products and indispensable ingredients in haute cuisine recipes.
El Ejido’s fruit and vegetable sector is cutting-edge and its growers are constantly striving to progress towards attaining the goal of 100% ecological agriculture, through traceability and optimisation of natural resources. It is also a sector with the tradition and experience of farmers who have devoted years to growing the fruits of the earth.
El Ejido is much more than that. It is a town with an exceptional location, by the Mediterranean, ideal for combining sport, sun, beaches, relaxation and culture with the flavours of a rich and varied cuisine made with exceptionally natural products.
