Last 12th of July Looije Aguilas celebrated the groundbreaking ceremony of its new packhouse. All the employees, associated growers, as well as the mayor of Aguilas, Mari Carmen Moreno, attended this event.
The new facilities will involve an investment of 4.5 million euros. In its 3,500 m2 Looije will be able to pack 12 million kilos of cherry tomato annually, which means we will triple our current production. The industrial unit will have the temperature and humidity controlled and all the machinery will be at the cutting edge. Besides, the defect vision system specific to cherry tomato will stand out and be unique in Europe. Therefore, our Sarita cherry tomato will continue being a benchmark of quality and flavour.
