The self-sufficiency that the Contramaestre municipality must achieve is a pending task, and today great efforts are being made to ensure that the agricultural sector guarantees its share. One example is the Credit and Service Cooperative (CCS) Miguel Betancourt, with the construction of a mini-industry.
The real potential of this agricultural entity in the area of fruits and spices of different types, determined the collaboration of the International Cooperative Alliance Project for the construction of this mini-industry that is 80% of its building, which once in operation will process a ton of fruits or condiments per hour.
The building will benefit the population through the acquisition of various fruit productions that over the years have had an excellent acceptance by Contramaestrians and visitors.
Alberto del Toro Alcarcón, president of the cooperative in question comments:
Self-sufficiency and the mini-industry
“This mini-industry will have a great impact because here fruits will be processed to make pulp, jams, and bars in different formats with affordable prices for the population. We also have another production line for tanned vegetables and onion and garlic paste”.
Today, more than ever, each territory of the country must achieve self-sufficiency due to the intensified US blockade against Cuba and the crisis generated by Covid-19 throughout the world.
