El Salvador: New Avocado Packing Plant
The new selection, labeling and packing plant will benefit 42 micro, small and medium producers.
Wednesday, May 6, 2009
The new plant enables producers who are members of the Avocado Association of El Salvador (PROD) to have a joint form of marketing their product with a presentation package that has the same image as imported avocados.
The Environmental Administrative Court ordered an immediate halt of activities and the closing of the pineapple packing plant.
Although the country is a major consumer of avocados, only 10% is produced domestically, with $20 million worth being imported every year.
The Administrative Environmental Court authorized Fresh Del Monte to reopen its pineapple packing plant under set conditions.
The company aims to meet increasing regional demand by increasing its capacity to produce corrugated cardboard by 40%.
