Happy ending for Spanish cucumber company

Antonio Lavao frunet cucumbers

THE Spanish firm wrongly blamed for causing an E.coli outbreak last summer has announced its sales are now up by 2%.

Cucumbers from Frunet, an organic farm in Algarrobo, were named and shamed after up to 1,000 people fell ill – mainly in Germany.

But later authorities in Hamburg showed the Andalucian produce was absolutely fine and it was in fact German beansprouts which had caused the bacteria to spread.

“We were accused hastily and completely unfairly with no proof whatsoever,” said Frunet manager Antonio Lavao.

“It did an enormous amount of damage to our sales.”

But happily, after announcing a full recovery just six months after the incident, the firm has now announced a 2% growth.

“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” added Lavao.
