Emotional «ALIMENTOS DE ESPAÑA AWARD» ceremony, a fundamental milestone in our young company, IngeOliva-Cortijo el Puerto, awarded in the Organic Production category.
On October 22 in Madrid it took place with a limited capacity due to health restrictions. The event, chaired by the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (Ministerio de Agricultura, Pesca y Alimentación), Luis Planas, and led by Sergio Sauca, performed the ceremony for the delivery of the XXXII Food Awards of Spain, aimed at rewarding those who represent the best of all that is good, the excellence in our country in the field of food and gastronomy. Our sincere gratitude to the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and then whole organization team.
This award, convened annually since 1987, recognises the work carried out by companies and professionals who have distinguished themselves by producing, offering and disseminating Spanish quality food, as well as their contribution to the development of the Spanish food sector in a sustainable and efficient way.
The winners have been chosen from 120 nominations. For the deliberations, a jury made up of personalities with extensive experience and knowledge of the agri-food and fishing sector has been counted on.
The sobriety of the event due to the circumstances has not prevented the winners from saying a few words of thanks. The CEO of IngeOliva- Cortijo el Puerto, Enrique de la Torre Liébana, highlighted ecology and the promotion of biodiversity as part of our DNA and formula for a sustainable future and, excited, the family character of the company in a sincere tribute and dedication to his parents, head and soul of this project, absent due to current restrictions.
Straight from the heart, our congratulations also to the winners in the other categories, very significantly to the Extraordinary Food Prize of Spain 2019 awarded to the Spanish Federation of Food Banks (FESBAL), the food bank and its meaningful role always and especially in these days.
