Who we are

The INSTITUT AGRÍCOLA is a non-profit business association founded in 1851. It’s the oldest agricultural association in Spain and one of the oldest in Europe covering all agricultural industry, including agriculture, livestock, and forestry activities in Catalonia (autonomous community in Spain). We look after the common interests of employers, landowners and developers of agricutural economic activity in rural areas.

As an independent entity we work and express our views as such, in the interests of our members.

The INSTITUT AGRÍCOLA is the agricultural branch of the "FOMENT DEL TREBALL”, the employers' organization in Catalonia. It also has representatives in the Spanish employers' organization CEOE.
