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.
