MERCABIO, AS INDUSTRY, is an export cooperative of Spanish ecological citri which is situated in the province of Almería, in the Valle del Almanzora ( within the Cantoria municipal area). In this industry, all the available production for the foreign market is handled.
One of the plantations is located in the Valle del Almanzora (Cantoria) and the second one is in the inside area about 500 meters above sea level, in the Sierra de los Filabres (Hill Farming).
The elimination of weed is carried out with the traditional system of reaping. In the fight against plagues, only natural predators are used and never chemical products.
The president of this cooperative, Jesús Serrano Pardo, started working in Organic Farming in 1985. From 1994 MERCABIO is established to market the obtained productions of oranges and lemons.
