Fruits de Ponent Cooperative Group has materialized its adherence to the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables (AIFV), which is celebrated in 2021 with the slogan 'Fruits and vegetables, essential elements of your diet'.
It is an initiative promoted by the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) that aims to raise awareness about the importance of these products in human nutrition, food security, health and sustainability, all of this with an eye toward achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
There are three objectives established by FAO in this International Year of Fruits and Vegetables. On the one hand, raise awareness about the health benefits of consuming fruits and vegetables; on the other, and as a consequence of the first, promoting healthy, balanced and diversified diets and lifestyles through the consumption of fruits and vegetables; and finally, reducing the loss and waste of fruits and vegetables in food systems.
FAO also wants to influence other aspects, such as supporting sustainable food systems in production, recycling and reducing household waste, as well as the integration of small farmers in the chains. of production and distribution.
Fruits de Ponent fully shares this ideology and will support the initiatives promoted by the AIFV throughout the year, sharing actions and disseminating the informative material generated to promote a conscious, safe and sustainable consumption of fruits and vegetables.
