Huge guacamole factory planned for Axarquia

ONE of Andalucia’s leading trade unions is planning to open a huge guacamole factory in the Axarquia.

Trops, which represents 1,800 farmers in the region, is set to open the 700sq m factory on the outskirts of Velez-Malaga.

The guacamole ‘Frumaco’ is described as a gourmet delicacy due to the superb quality of avocados found in the area.

Trops revealed that in 2013 it sold over 20,000 tonnes of tropical fruit totalling €36 million.

Some 5000 people work in this sector in the Axarquia.
