The co-operative

For the last few years the major part of the Genal Valley's chestnut production is commercialized by the Cooperativa Castañas Valle del Genal, whose plant, ln the village of Pujerra, is one of the most technologically advanced in Europe. With installations coverng 2.OO0 m2, its production reaches 2.000.000 kg during the 4O-day harvest period. Average production is 50.OO0 kg per day, maximum output 75.000 kg per day. The processing of the freshly harvested chestnut (classiflcation, curng, brushng, polishing) respects natural processes.
