Construction of a 100% solar powered tomato packing with lithium battery storage, to calibrate, clean and pack the tomato production of the Arica y Parinacota Small Farmers Association.
Currently the project is in the closing stage and the Association of Small Farmers of Arica and Parinacota - Pampa Concordia were legally formalized in the Agro Concordia Cooperative and, due to the contingency by Covid-19, they have positioned themselves in the Arica commune market as a home delivery offer through its website www.agroconcordia.cl . They hope very soon to continue with the goals of exporting their products to other regions and abroad.
