On 24 March, senior officials from the Consellería Valenciana de Agricultura (Regional Valencian Ministry of Agriculture) visited our headquarters' facilities in Villena (Alicante).
In attendance for this institutional visit were the Regional Secretary for Agriculture and Rural Development, Roger Llanes Ribas, together with the General Director of Agriculture, Livestock, and Fisheries, Antonio Quintana, and the Technical Secretary of the Colegio Oficial de Ingenieros Agrónomos del Levante (Agricultural Engineers Association of Levante), Pepe Carbonell.
The continuous growth that companies such as Atlántica Agrícola have experienced in recent years, as well as their remarkable presence and expansion in international markets, has not gone unnoticed by Roger Llanes, who stated the following:
"The work being carried out by leading companies such as Atlántica in the field of plant agronutrients and biostimulants is fundamental in terms of competitiveness for the agri-food sector and, for that very reason, the Consellería wants to transmit our willingness to collaborate in all projects that benefit the agricultural sector."
For his part, Antonio Montilla, founding partner and co-president of Atlántica Agrícola made the following comment:
“This visit constitutes an important milestone during this time in which Atlántica continues to grow and innovate, always in conjunction with the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda as well as other cornerstone European strategies such as “From Farm to Table” and “Biodiversity strategy for 2030”, whose aims are to guarantee healthy food, combat climate change, protect the environment, preserve biodiversity, and create a fair economy in the food chain. As specialists in plant nutrition, we are contributing to this great joint transition that is taking place, and we believe that we can have an even greater effect if, in some areas, we do so with relevant agents for agriculture and society, like this Consellería.”
This meeting between the Consellería, Atlántica Agrícola, and the Colegio Oficial de Ingenieros Agrónomos del Levante has aimed to strengthen relations and explore avenues for future collaboration.
Atlántica Agrícola is one of the few companies that remain independent in the world, in a context of increasing concentration in the sector, whose trend is articulated in purchases, mergers, and acquisitions that give way to large holdings.
