Andujar City Council praised the "Andujar es Gourmet", Fair promoted by the Town Hall, and the "Andujar is in Fashion", Association. It took place on Friday, June 17. The public was able to sample the first local agri-food product, despite the extreme heat.
Jose Antonio Oria, Councilor for Strategic Management, Promotion, Commerce and Tourism, says that work is being done to find alternative dates for future editions.
The ceremony was held in Plaza de la Constitucion. It was attended by Pedro Luis Rodriguez (the mayor of the city), other members of Municipal Corporation, Montse Garrido (the president of the collective) and representatives of the Andujar Chamber of Commerce.
The Fair featured 22 local businesses and shops. It was held in order to promote the quality of local products, such as honey, olive oil, sausages and cheeses, sweets and wines, and liqueurs.
Pedro Luis Rodriguez, the councilman, highlighted the importance of this type action in promoting visibility and support for agri-food businesses and companies, as well as promoting the purchase of local businesses.
"From the Municipal Government, we will continue to work together with the various groups to create synergies which place our business, and therefore, Andujar, in the place it should, as that regional benchmark, and the rest of this province."
