Planas defends “a family and professional agri-food model like that of Castilla y León”
The Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Luis Planas, has praised the agri-food activity in the Community by ensuring that one of the main concerns of his portfolio is the search for “professional stability” in the sector. “We are in favor of a family and professional agri-food model, like the one in Castilla y León”, he praised, after visiting the oil factory and the Acor sugar factory in Olmedo (Valladolid), an “excellent example”.
During his speech, he admitted that both this and the visits he will make next in León or Zamora represent “a contact and direct support to the sector sugar beet” and the rest of agricultural economic activities, among which he highlighted “very significant” features, such as the presence of two and a half million sheep, “the largest census of this kind in Spain”.
He has also conveyed his satisfaction with the preparation of the new Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) 2023-2027, which is in process and has involved “very important and profound collective work” for which the Ministry has found “the magnificent and fundamental dialogue with the Ministry.” “Relay and continuity are essential in this plan, with which we want nothing more than to create the ideal conditions for profitable companies that produce food and drink.”
