Dialogue and active listening

We are proactive in joining with others to search for solutions, both through dialogue as well as active listening with institutional actors and public administration linked to agriculture.
Recognize food production
To cover the dietary needs of a growing population, in the coming years we must increase food production by between 60 and 70%. Only agriculture can guarantee the sustenance of a hungry world that is facing an increasing demand without jeopardizing its resources.

Move the sector towards a circular and innovative economy

Agriculture is much more than food production: agriculture is the production of knowledge, experience, innovation and technology. For this reason, the Ingenio Foundation is committed to using its technology transfer methodology to transform today´s scientific findings and agricultural engineering breakthroughs into tomorrow´s businesses and technologies.
Highlight murcian, spanish and european agriculture

Spain is the primary horticulture exporter in the European Union and one of the five most recognized on the continent in this market, allowing fruits and vegetables to rise up as the second Spanish export in total value. Along these lines, the Campo de Cartagena area is a clear ambassador of the Marca España: 1 of every 5 fruits and vegetables exported from Spain come from Murcian fields.
