In times of crisis and social isolation, the challenges are numerous, and the response capacity of the most diverse organizations is sometimes scarce. However, in order to help the population in the fight against the pandemic caused by Covid-19, Arouca Agrícola has been providing the home delivery service since 13 March.
In this way,
residents in Arouca UNESCO Global Geopark territory can enjoy not only the
freshest agricultural products, but also processed products, directly from the
producer to their table.
With this new
service, Arouca Agrícola intends to support people, so that they do not have to
leave their homes to have access to some essential goods. Thus, producers
continue to sell their products and the population has products of traditional
cultivation and guaranteed quality at their disposal.
The entire process is
carried out with the utmost care and hygiene, to ensure the well-being of the
team, producers and consumers. After the order is placed, it is collected at
the producer, packed and delivered to the consumer safely.
Arouca Agrícola is a project, promoted by AGA – Arouca Geopark Association, whose purpose is to encourage and enhance agricultural production and the consumption of what Arouca farmers produce so well.
