The Idanha-a-Nova Chamber and HVCZ Industries, a Veracruz Group company, signed a memorandum of understanding for the installation of an almond factory in that municipality, with an investment of around 13 million Euros.

“This memorandum of understanding aims to create conditions for the Vera Cruz Group to install industrial equipment for peeling almonds in Idanha, on a 194-hectare property that the municipality of Idanha-a-Nova will assign, within the scope of the welcoming strategy of our ‘Green Valley Food Lab”, says, in a statement, the mayor of the local municipality, Armindo Jacinto.
The recently signed memorandum provides for the provision of a rustic building for the installation of industrial equipment for the peeling and storage of almonds, as well as a processing unit for them and all the industrial processes associated with these operations.
According to the defined project, the Veracruz Group, through HVCZ Industries, will install in the municipality of Idanha-a-Nova, next to land where the agricultural activity is already developed, the industrial equipment for the peeling and storage of almonds, which includes a factory, warehouses and other facilities, including the reception of raw materials and flow to the final products market.
The company is committed to privileging jobs residing in the municipality of Idanha-a-Nova, using local service providers and collaborating with the City Council of Idanha-a-Nova and other local public entities in promoting the region.
In addition, it also undertakes to develop the necessary economic and financial studies with a view to implementing, together with the Câmara de Idanha-a-Nova, the conversion of almond culture to organic production.
