During the ceremony, Jaime Yartu, president of PROVACUNO, highlighted that “these awards are recognition by the sector of people or institutions from different fields that represent values ​​of effort, work, enthusiasm, innovation and commitment with which the meat sector beef is very represented.”

These awards are what society deserves because “Beef is happiness, it is family, it is friends, it is sharing and living. This sector, with what it produces, makes people enjoy” Yartu concluded in his speech.

The beef sector is strategic in Spain, providing direct and indirect employment to more than 200,000 families and acting as a brake on rural depopulation and its sustainability.

In addition, it represents an essential component of the national GDP and promotes economic growth in both rural and urban areas. In environmental terms, beef cattle farming is essential to minimize the risk of fires and conserve biodiversity. Multimedia gallery:
