Prologis was delighted to welcome the Mercado de Cooperativa Agraria to Barcelona's Prologis Park Sant Boi, promoting sustainable consumption of local products and encouraging healthy eating.
The market took place on 5 November, following an agreement between the company and the municipality of Sant Boi de Llobregat as part of Prologis's commitment to get involved with the communities in which it works.
Both Prologis and the Sant Boi municipality also saw the event as an opportunity to foster links between park and town, making users of Prologis Park Sant Boi aware of the high-quality products available on their doorstep and stimulating the local economy.
“We are delighted to promote healthy and sustainable consumption habits in our parks, as well as encouraging people to buy local fruit and veg and supporting producers, in line with out PARKlife™ philosophy. The visit by the Sant Boi Farming Cooperative went down so well with everyone at Prologis Park Sant Boi that we are hoping to make it a monthly event”, said Ignacio Brotons, Real Estate & Customer Experience Manager at Prologis España.
The market's stop-off in Prologis Park Sant Boi also drew in some local dignitaries, including the mayoress of Sant Boi de Llobregat, Lluïsa Moret, and the site manager for Schneider Electric, Álex Teixidó.
