Cooperative-Farmer Sector Lead Food Production in Sancti Spiritus, Cuba

Jose Luis Camellon

For several years, the food supply of nearly half a million residents in Sancti Spiritus, has been coming from the cooperative and farmer sector.

This productive entity has also provided the territory with tools to substitute imports, and has been involved in the currently demanded transformation of the agrarian picture as well.

The over 30 000 local cooperative members and independent farmers grouped in the National Association of Small Farmers (ANAP), are committed to update the soil exploitation schemes, and to clear up the road to commercialization.

The over 30 000 local cooperative members and independent farmers grouped in the National Association of Small Farmers (ANAP), are committed to update the soil exploitation schemes, to broaden productions, and to clear up the road to commercialization.  That’s why they enjoy the pleasure of celebrating the 51st anniversary of their organization with best results.

Sancti Spiritus farmers were placed second in the ANAP national emulation, an outcome that couldn’t be better due to failures in the production of determinant products like beans, tomatoes, milk and tobacco, among others.

Farmers here can aim higher if they commit themselves to solve several already identified problems such as the hiring of personnel and the attitude of some producers that prefer profits over what’s really needed.
