La Palma Cooperative is one of the most important tomato producers in southern Spain, with about 700 members and 900 hectares of tomato.
During the month of June 2019, La Palma has reinforced its commitment to environmental sustainability by training its technical and quality team in the use of eFoodPrint ENV environmental sustainability calculation software.
La Palma extends its commitment to sustainable agriculture this time by adding the calculation of the water footprint to the calculation of the carbon footprint of its tomato production.
True to its innovative character, in 2015 La Palma was already a pioneer by carrying out a carbon footprint calculation of one of its star products, cherry tomato.
With this new commitment towards agricultural sustainability, La Palma will carry out a benchmarking study among its partners to know which are the most sustainable productive practices and thus spread them among its producers.
