E.F.E.O. Meets Spanish Producers

In 2014, E.F.E.O. started an information program geared toward producers and manufacturers of essential oils in Europe.  As part of this program, after Italy, Germany and Bulgaria, E.F.E.O. met on January 26, 2017 in Murcia with more than 80 Spanish producers from the main regions of the country. 

This conference was organized and sponsored by Ailimpo, which stands for Lemon's and Grapefruit's Interprofessional Association. This very dynamic organization gathers representatives from all economic activities related to the production, trade and transformation of the lemon and grapefruit in Spain.  It was established in August 1998 and promote the contact and cohesion between producers, traders, exporters and transformers of lemon and grapefruit in Spain.

After a brief welcome from MR Juan Hernández Albarracín from the Government of Murcia,  from the President and Vice President of Ailimpo, respectively Mr. Domingo Arce and Mr. Miguel Angel Parra,  Jose Antonio Garcia, Director of Ailimpo, gave an excellent presentation on the production of Lemon in Spain:
Spain is the second producer of Lemon in the world after Argentina. (1,021,00 tons of fruit vs 1,151,000 tons in Argentina) but the first one in fresh fruit (745,000 tons vs 269,000 tons in Argentina). 

The average yield is 60T per ha (or 22 tons per acre) with 75% going to fresh fruit and 25% going to processing.  The production of CP lemon oil in Spain is 900 to 1000 tons.  It represents 15% of the worldwide production. Sustainability and social responsibility are two very important elements for this industry providing 16,800 jobs in Spain and using 38,000 has (94,000 acres) of land.

Jorge Miralles, Director of F&F operations for Indukern and President of E.F.E.O., followed by sharing with the audience the mission and the actions of E.F.E.O. concerning the NCS, particularly its very deep involvement in REACH, presentation which was further detailed by Jens Achim Protzen from Kaders and Eric Angelini, from Mane. With humour as well as good science, they discussed REACH and its impending deadline of June 2018. 

This most interesting conference was followed by a convivial dinner, sponsored by Indukern S.A. and E.F.E.O. where we had a chance to taste the very good specialties of Murcia as well as blend with our Spanish friends and further solidify ties together. 

E.F.E.O. is most grateful to Ailimpo and Indukern for their indefatigable support in making this most interesting meeting possible.
