The Teguise City Council approved this Thursday in an extraordinary session, the start of the transfer of an office building located in the Agrotechnology Center in favor of the Regulatory Council of Denomination of Origin of Wines of Lanzarote.
“Once we assess the technical reports included in said file, we will be able to proceed with the transfer of the facilities required by the Regulatory Council,” Oswaldo Betancort declared.
“This is a first step for the entity to be able to move to a suitable headquarters to develop its activity in the control and food safety of Lanzarote wines and to be able to serve the wine sector from Teguise, which will mean added value for the Center “he added.
“With this approval, we make ourselves available to the Board’s management to streamline the rest of the procedures and sign an agreement to define the conditions for the use of this space,” explained the first mayor.
The mayor stressed that he has also reached agreements “with the Maramajo Ranchers Association and other groups in the primary sector that need a place of operations with the support of the institutions.”
For his part, the area councilor, Gerardo Rodríguez, announces that “the City Council will soon sign an agreement with SAT El Jable, a group of farmers who have requested a commercial warehouse for the storage and marketing of onions, sweet potatoes and grains.”
