ANECOOP, still unstoppable

The companies belonging to the Anecoop Group (including their international subsidiaries) have invoiced 802 million euros

On the 23rd of March, Anecoop presented the main results of the 2015/2016 campaign at their General Assembly. The figures indicate that Anecoop has closed the financial year for the fourth year running with a production above 700,000 tonnes and with 639 million euros invoiced, with regard to the activity developed from its branches in Spain. The consolidated figure for all the companies in the group rises to 930,000 tonnes and 802 million euros.

The chairman of the cooperative, Alejandro Monzón, assured that “Anecoop forms a business model that has managed to consolidate over four decades as leader of the horticulture business in Europe”. The general manager of Anecoop, Joan Mir spotlighted the incorporation of a new partner at the start of the 2016/2017 campaign, the Sevillian company FOASAT and the creation of an Association of Economic Interest for marketing top quality Almeria papayas throughout Europe, the company “Exóticos del Sur”.

The vegetable group has undergone an important growth, both in kilos (+42.2%) and in invoicing (+34%). Lettuces and broccoli have become consolidated and it is worth mentioning the importance of the Prepared Produce vegetables, with increases both in volume and in price.

With regard to fruit, in 2015/16 over 110,000 tonnes of watermelon and 80,000 tonnes of persimmons were marketed. Invoicing of stone fruit has grown by 8%, with a highly significant rise in flat peaches and flat nectarines. The growths recorded in pomegranates should also be indicated, as well as the appearance of kiwis and papayas. In Pre-prepared produce 800,000 pots of fruit have been reached.

Solagora, a subsidiary company exclusively devoted to marketing Bio produce has come into its own during this campaign. Regarding invoicing, its growth was 4%, although in volume it represents 1.6% of the total marketed by Anecoop.

This campaign has meant a “turning point” for citrus fruits, after five very bad years. 10.6% less citrus fruits have been marketed, but they have been sold at prices that are around 19% higher. In lemons, an important growth in invoicing has occurred, 75%, a clear contrast with a 35% drop in volume.
