More than 40 facilities in the agricultural and forestry sector renew their image in salute to the 325th anniversary of the founding of the city of Matanzas, said Ricardo Menéndez Chapelín, delegate of the Ministry of Agriculture in the province.
The process of dignity includes 16 entities, among which the Delegation of Agriculture, EDESCON, Agricultural Supply, Combined Poultry, UEB Flora and Fauna, and the Integral Agricultural Company Matanzas, the official added.
It also highlights the project of integral development of the Yumuri Valley, which will benefit the peasants and inhabitants of the area.
“This project will boost the production of fruit trees in the Valley and provide us with resources to develop agriculture there,” said Osnay Rodríguez, president of the Amistad Cubano-Mexicana Cooperative of agricultural production, located in that area.
In addition, the image of the 21 points of sale of collection and nine state agricultural markets of the municipality is renewed.

“Today we only have one point of sale of EGAME in the state agricultural market El Bosque and we intend to open a market-hostel,” added Ricardo Menéndez.
The Ministry of Agriculture in Matanzas, although it does not have a large heritage within the Matanzas city, contributes to the city’s engalanamiento towards the 325th anniversary of its foundation.
