VII Technical Conference Promotion and Improvement of the cultivation of carob..

On 9th May 2019, in Palma, we held the seventh edition of the technical conference for the promotion and improvement of the cultivation of carob trees. This is organized by the Innovative Companies of the Garrofa (EIG) and the Ministry of Environment, Agriculture and Fisheries of the Balearic Government.

The event served to highlight the importance of ensuring the conservation and hygiene of this fruit, as well as the properties of locust bean gum, a derivative of the carob seeds.

Carob SA is one of the partner companies of the EIG. At the conference, our Head of Quality Department, Julia San Segundo, presented to the audience the manufacturing process and applications of locust bean gum in food, cosmetics and textiles.
