Fecoam will be showing its full potential at the 10th edition of Fruit Attraction 2018

The Federation of Agricultural Cooperatives of the Region of Murcia (Fecoam) represents roughly 80 farming and livestock production, marketing and export firms in this Spanish region, which together encompass some 20,000 crop and livestock farmers.

As they do each year, both Fecoam and a broad representation of its associated companies will be attending the international Fruit Attraction fair to expand their commercial network, take part in the various activities organized by the fair and, above all, show the wide variety and quality that Murcia’s cooperatives have to offer.

Together with Fecoam, the 10th edition of this fair in Madrid will also be attended by the associated cooperatives Alimer (Alimentos del Mediterráneo), Campos de Jumilla, Camposeven, D. O. Pera de Jumilla, El Limonar de Santomera, Frutas la Carrichosa, Frutas y Cítricos de Mula (Frucimu), Gregal, Hortamira, Hoyamar, Mundosol, San Cayetano, Sol y Tierra (Soltir), Lobrot, Thader Cieza, Unexport and Vega de Cieza.

The Federation

Fecoam aims to represent its associated members and provide them with public and private representation services, organizational advice, training and recycling courses as a basis for any cooperative’s development, and participation in research and development programmes in their sectors.

With all these actions, it contributes to the competitiveness of the cooperative sector and drives change towards excellent management models guided by the criteria of quality, social responsibility, workers’ health and safety, and respect for the environment, as well as rural development and continuity.

The keys for the Federation’s function are inter-cooperation as the most important value to be fostered among cooperatives, serving members and responding quickly to their needs and demands, as well as ensuring the quality of the services offered, and encouraging pro-activity and innovation as the organization’s distinctive traits.

Fecoam is structured in eight departments to fulfil its range of services. These departments are the Technical Department; Guidance for Fruit and Vegetable Producers; Legal Advice; Quality and the Environment; Communication; Training and Grants; Agricultural Insurance; and a Joint Service for the Prevention of Occupational Risks.

In organic terms, the Federation is divided into 11 specialized sectors including Flowers, Supplies, Dried Fruits, Livestock and Feed, Vegetables, Oil, Wine, Citrus, Apricot and Green Plum, Peach and other fruits, Various, and Tomato Sub-sectors and Organic Agriculture.

Fecoam is also committed to the development of the agricultural sector through research, collaborating with different Chairs and European rural development projects.
