COATO is an agricultural cooperative company founded in 1979 owned by 4,000 growers whose land amount to twenty thousand hectares of crops. More than 14,000 of which are organic (composing of almond trees, peppers for paprika, olive trees, and fresh fruit and vegetables), which places us as the company with more organic area in Europe.
Its more than 14,000 hectares of organic crops are mainly located in the Region of Murcia, but also in Andalusia and other neighbouring provinces such as Albacete and Alicante.
COATO has been a pioneer in its field in Spain since 1996 in the implantation of assured quality and environmental systems like the ISO 9000, ISO 14000 and EMAS.
Likewise it has converted most of its farming practices into one of the two sides of the coin of sustainable agriculture (organic and integrated farming) whilst also participating in European programs in the fight against erosion.
Besides the organic certificate of the European Union, the almonds and olive oil are also Biosuisse certified.
COATO carry on with the production, manufacturing, packing and marketing of its products, assuring this way quality and traceability from the crop to the customers.
