PROVACUNO from Europe, the Agro-food Inter-professional Organization of the European Beef Industry in Spain, consists of national associations that represent companies from the production, industrial and commercial sectors of this product. These associations represent and defend the interests of their members. In addition, PROVACUNO is where these associations come together and where decisions are adopted with regards to the internal regulation of the sector.
PROVACUNO was established on 2 December 1997 and officially recognized as an agro-food inter-professional organization by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, on 30 June 1998 . It represents approximately 85% of the industry of European beef in Spain, including both producers and processors.
PROVACUNO also caters to their belief that an Inter-professional organization is a necessary, associative mechanism, both within the general EU framework and with regards to the specific circumstances of European beef demand in Spain. In addition, it is obvious that most operators wish to make up for lost time caused by the different economic and health crises – with a strong media impact – and whose effects and consequences are still largely felt in the form of regulatory costs, closed export markets and loss of competitiveness.
This is how PROVACUNO was established, subscribed by the representatives of the industry’s main producers, processors and trade associations. To bring European Quality Beef from Spain to worldwide.
