CONCENTRATION OF AGRARIAN PRODUCTION
NUTS
Unió concentrates part of the almond and hazelnut production from Catalonia, Aragon, Valencia
and the Balearic Islands.
Preferably indigenous varieties are used from the areas we cover which stand out for their recognized
quality, such as the Llargueta and Marcona varieties in the case of the almond, and the Negreta and
Pauetet varieties in the case of the hazelnut.
The area used for nut production is 31,300 hectares cultivated by 4,750 producer partners, which enables
us to obtain around 15 million kilos of nuts.

registered under the Siurana Protected Designation of Origin label.
It also markets the Empeltre oil variety cultivated in the areas of Terra Alta and Baix Aragó.
The olive production of our 8,500 producer partners amounts to around 34 million kilos,
