COATO is not your typical company; we are a community created to provide what is truly needed – healthy nutrition through sustainable products and processes. Our agricultural cooperative is located in an area with a deep-rooted agricultural tradition, Totana (Murcia), next to the Mediterranean highway in the heart of the Guadalentín Valley. It all began in 1979 with 65 producers of paprika peppers. Since then, we have been growing, just like our crops, which are now much more diverse than those initial peppers. Fresh fruits and vegetables, almonds, oil, honey, are some of the products we currently work with. Throughout this journey, we have garnered and continue to receive significant recognition for quality and sustainability, establishing ourselves as one of the most important cooperatives in the sector.
As producers, COATO allows us to exercise strict control over the entire production process – from seeds, quality control of soil and water, cultivation techniques, phytosanitary treatments, harvesting procedures, etc. – in the field’s technical service, through reception, quality control, pre-cooling, handling, and packaging. This ensures that when the product reaches the consumer, it has been obtained with the utmost respect for the environment, and optimal quality levels have been achieved.
At COATO, we are experts in the harvesting of paprika and other dried products such as oil, almonds, or honey, supplying the essence of our fields to all of Spain and Europe.
Through this service, we provide our members with the necessary advice for the use of treatments and fertilizers most suitable for their crops.
This section consolidates all payments and income that occur in and from the cooperative, involving members, employees, customers, and suppliers.
This service was created with the aim of offering personalized technical advice to members, monitoring and controlling their farms.
We offer self-service supply of diesel A, B, and gasoline.
We provide our members and employees with continuous training services to improve their activities. COATO has three training rooms on its premises.
COATO has a cafeteria-restaurant and two dining rooms with ample capacity to meet the needs of its members and employees.
