Alma MAKRO in Spain

Alma MAKRO in Spain supports the work of small Spanish producers, enabling them to stay in business or to go back to producing authentic products in a traditional way. MAKRO has undertaken to buy most of the farmers output.

From Cíes Islands shellfish from Galicia, Black Canary Pork and Pelibuey Lamb from the Canaries, fruits and vegetables from Aranjuez in Madrid, oak honey from Castilla y León, Gamoneu del Valle cheese from Asturias, Iberian cold meats from Castilla La Mancha, suckling goat from Andalucia to Tudance Beef from Cantabria customers can choose from a wide range of products and regions.

The goal of the cooperation between Alma MAKRO and the local farmers is to keep the tradition of Spanish gastronomy with the taste and smell of their products. Alma MAKRO supports the local economy in the cities where MAKRO has stores in increasing the employment and the economic development of the area. For the Alma MAKRO stores it offers the opportunity to sell a distinctive selection of products meeting the quality and sustainability standards they offer their customers. To strengthen the commitment between MAKRO and local producers, we provide products from Alma MAKRO to the Association of Centenarian Restaurants and Taverns (RCM) from Madrid. The member restaurants of RSM introduced these products in their menus according to seasonality.
