Students of the University of Salford get to know PITA

The directors of these firms have made a presentation of their activities, and have answered the concerns raised about their business experience in a very interesting discussion about their business model.

A group of students from the University of Salford (Manchester) have visited the Science and Technology Park of Almería (PITA). They are students of a graduate program called “European Business”, who complement their theoretical training with meetings with entrepreneurs from different economic sectors.

The students have met with Iberveg and Conversion Talent, which are both companies located in the park. The directors of these firms have made a presentation of their activities, and have answered the concerns raised about their business experience in a very interesting discussion about their business model.

Iberveg works in the export of fruit and vegetables exclusively to the UK, performing a thorough quality control of the products that they supply to customers. Meanwhile, Conversion Talent is an international human resources consultancy, specialising in e-marketing and e-commerce, based in Belgium and in PITA. The group also visited the facilities of the Tecnova Technology Centre in PITA, and got to know the potential that this foundation brings to production, marketing, the auxiliary industry, and the post-harvest and packaging of fruit and vegetables.

This group of students have different countries and continents of origin, but mainly they are African and Asian. In most cases, they are children of entrepreneurs who want to expand their business in Europe, and through this program they acquire the necessary training to start the business when they return to their country of origin. With this activity, PITA promotes the visibility of the companies and the park itself abroad.
