Although catch phrases can be inaccurate, the saying “Region of Murcia, orchard of Europe”, is spot on.

The Murcian agrofood industry, pillar of the regional economy, accounts for 32.5% of employment and 28.3% of production in the region. Furthermore, this sector is a driver for the creation of other innovative, leading-edge industries, such as farming technology, water management, greenhouses, agrofood machinery, packing and packaging, etc.

The Region of Murcia is internationally known for its fruits and vegetables, ancestral expertise in agricultural practices and unique ecological farming conditions. The range of Murcian farming products is vast in terms of fruits, vegetables and nuts. Watch more about the Agrofood sector in our whiteboard animation.

Brexit, Threat or Opportunity

Brexit, Threat or Opportunity

With Brexit around the corner, one can fall into discouragement due to uncertainty, or understand that this process is an interesting opportunity to welcome new companies into the Region of Murcia. The United Kingdom leaving the EU results in opportunities for our region due to factors such as the foreseeable lack of competitiveness by British firms as they will no longer be eligible for EU finance and support programs, projects and mechanisms, and their labor market could stagnate. Another factor to be considered is the establishment by British companies of commercial and strategic alliances with EU countries and regions to ensure they remain present in the rest of Europe.

Many companies have already left the United Kingdom or are in the process of setting up subsidiaries in EU countries. As the leave date approaches, it is more than foreseeable that a larger number of companies with do the same. In the Region of Murcia, we welcome British investors, preparing set-up projects adapted to their business sectors and features. In this regard, the role of the Investment Acceleration Unit (UNAI) will be paramount. Over 2,100 jobs in the Region of Murcia are created by United Kingdom companies, including G’s, Langmead, Dainton Group Services, PCS Manufactoring Ltd., GoResponse Ltd., Kappa Packaging and DFS Furniture Company.

The largest logistics center of Europe is in the Region

Primafrio has inaugurated in the municipality of Alhama a large transport city covering a surface area of 300,000 square meters and equipped with everything, including its own hotel and supermarket. Not including drivers, the company employs some 400 people in the offices and annexed services of the new logistics center. The new premises have 106 loading bays, a storage area of 16,000 m2 and a parking space for 1000 trucks.

Construction of the new site has implied a €30-million investment for the company, which currently owns 2,000 trucks and has a turnover of €350 million. The 2,000 trucks owned by Primafrío make it necessary to employ about 280 people working in three shifts who monitor the traffic of vehicles driving all over Europe 24/7. To coordinate the movements of the firm’s fleet, state-of-the-art IT applications and communication systems are used.
