Future opportunities in the Tunisian agricultural sector

The premium brand for fruit and vegetables paves the way for integration into the professional world

(Valencia. March 24th, 2021). – SanLucar has been committed to the education of young people in Tunisia for many years now. In order to further expand its educational training program, the multinational company has signed an agreement last week to support young talents in the Tunisian agricultural sector. In addition to offering the trainees the opportunity to undergo the practical part of their training at SanLucar, the company will employ each year 150 graduates with an agricultural diploma on its Tunisian tomato and berry farms.

SanLucar signed this agreement with AVFA (Agency for Agricultural Education and Training), Swisscontact Tunisia (international foundation for development work), Hedi Bouchemaoui Group (HBG) and various Tunisian ministers.

Up to 70% of graduates in Tunisia have trouble finding a job. At the same time, it is becoming increasingly important for companies to recruit well-trained professionals.

In this context, the aim of the agreement is to further expand and strengthen the cooperation between private companies and the training institutes under the responsibility of the AVFA. This way, the young trainees get the opportunity to apply theory they have learned into practice from the very beginning, to gain insights into the real working world and find out which areas they enjoy the most. The private companies have the advantage of getting to know their trainees better hiring them for specific positions after they graduate.

As a leader in the production of fruits and vegetables in Tunisia, SanLucar is actively involved in the fields of agriculture, Agri-food and the environment. Already since 2017, the SanLucar tomato farm La Cinquième Saison has been contributing to the training and development of young people in the agricultural sector.
