The president of the Export and Investment Promotion Agency of El Salvador (known in Spanish as PROESA), Salvador Gómez Góchez, visited the Los Nonualcos. During the journey, he met the shrimp farm Las Animas, Zacatecoluca, La Paz, which holds 42 hectares of water mirrors and produces about 1.2 million pounds of shrimp a year. Together with the PROESA team, he also met with members of the Asociación de Productores Agroindustriales Orgánicos de El Salvador (APRAINORES), producers and exporters of cashew, mango, pineapple and cocoa, in Tecoluca, San Vicente.


The objective of the visit was to know firsthand the facilities, processes and needs of both institutions to support their growth.


“The farm Las Animas is in the process of expanding 20 hectares its facilities and is recognized for the use of technology in shrimp production and I appreciate today's visit, because a government cabinet official had never visited us before,” said the owner of the company.


During the meeting, President Gómez Góchez expressed; "we come to your disposal, to listen to your needs and offer PROESAS’ services to enhance the farm and to perform any diligence so that the product can be exported to international markets."


On its behalf, APRAINORES exposed its willingness to work hand in hand with PROESA, to reinforce the increase in its sales capacity, the opening of a line of commercialization of food products, development of operations that are more ecofriendly, among others.


The manager of the agribusiness association, José Alexander Flores, said that “we are not a millionaire organization, but every year we make a great effort so that there are revenues guarantee our producers the payment of their products and that guarantee workers the sustainability of their families".


In addition, he held he believes in the effort that President Nayib Bukele is making for Salvadoran producers.


APRAINORES counts with 80 producers, mostly local women, who oversee production, plant processing and marketing, with France and the United States being the main export markets. Similarly, they are committed to train producers in good agricultural practices, especially those related to environmental pollution and agrotoxics.


"I want to congratulate you for the work you are doing, and we want to join and work as a team between the association Los Nonualcos and PROESA to back them in the solidification of the cooperative," said the president of PROESA.


The association has an organic certification that accredits its products to be able to export them to markets such as Europe, the United States and with growth potential to other regions. It also has the fair-trade certification, which guarantees equal employment opportunity.
