Meritxell Serret, accompanied by the president of AMPANS, the mayor of Sant Salvador de Guardiola, and the delegate of the Catalan Government for the Central Catalonia region visited the dairy.
The minister of Agriculture, Livestock, Fishing and Food Production, Meritxell Serret, toured the facility of AMPANS's Urpina Farm. At the Muntanyola dairy, we gave her a warm welcome and explained how our cheese-making project gives jobs to people with intellectual disabilities. The minister was accompanied by the mayor of Sant Salvador de Guardiola, Albert Miralda, and the delegate of the Catalan Government for the Central Catalonia region, Laura Vilagrà, as part of a tour of the Bages region.
The group also stopped at the Urpina Residencial Home and the Urpina vineyards, which along with the dairy form part of a project led by the AMPANS foundation which has chosen to carry out agro-social work through its dairies, vineyards, orchards and olive groves as a means of integrating persons with intellectual disabilities into the workplace.
