In order to raise awareness of the importance of the survival of the chestnut at European level, the objective of this  two-days gathering is the collaboration of the producing regions, the defense of the sector and the implementation of joint strategie,  for the transfer of knowledge and works.

  • Presentation of the chestnut sector, to farmers and companies, the reality of the sector at the level of production, trade and processing.
  • New cultivation techniques as models to follow and to implement
  • Cooperative Model Exposure as an example of success in shifting the value chain to the primary sector.
  • Showing the daily work of the Valle del Jerte Cooperative Association's packaging plant, an organization that offers quality, safe and environmentally friendly products.
