Marisa Rodríguez. Representative of the Monte de Tabuyo Cooperative
“Monte de Tabuyo”is a cooperative dedicated to the transformation of mushrooms, set up by women who started their own company in order to bring the products they harvest in Tabuyo to other people. They care about the products they produce, products which normally end up as tinned food or in high quality dishes. Their work is based on total control of the production process and they sow, grow, harvest and cook all the products themselves.
