Grupo Agrotecnología participates as a promoting partner in the creation of the Orihuela-Vega Baja Agrifood Cluster (CAOVBA by its acronym in spanish), the first dedicated to the sector in the Valencian Community. The reason for being of CAOVBA is to revalue and boost the region’s agri-food sector both nationally and internationally.
Grupo Agrotecnología, leading company in the sector of biostimulants, biopesticides, biofertilizers and pioneer in the Zero Residue strategy, has become a promoter partner of CAOVBA (Orihuela Vega-Baja Agrifood Cluster).
CAOVBA has been presented at Fruit Attraction 2019, after its recent constitution, the result of the joint work of the City Council of Orihuela, the Higher Polytechnic School of Orihuela, the Polytechnic University of Valencia and several companies, including the Grupo Agrotecnología. This association is born from the union of companies linked to the agricultural sector, entities, institutions and organizations with the objective of promoting and revaluing the agri-food sector in the area at national and international level. In turn, it seeks to become a reference and representation association of the agri-food sector of the Vega Baja under the creation of a joint brand.

They trust that many other companies in the sector and institutions adhere to this new commercial strategy of the region to strengthen the territory, greater interaction to build and generate mutual strengthening that impacts on greater international projection and visibility through a joint brand. The key to the constitution of the cluster, explains Enrique Riquelme CEO of Grupo Agrotecnología, “have been the international Symposium of the agrifood sector of the Vega Baja held in recent years, whose purpose was to revalue the agrifood sector through sustainability, management effective and efficient of agricultural productions”. And it is that the Spanish agrifood sector, continues Riquelme "has become one of the bastions of the economy. The creation of CAOVBA responds to a manifest need to boost and revalue the sector and the territory. The entrepreneurial spirit is, without a doubt, the bond of this cluster that will launch a series of challenges and actions to project and promote the sector nationally and internationally”
