The agro-food industry is one of the markets to which TMGA provides port and logistical services. The events have been attended by more than 170 trade delegates from the sector of foodstuffs of animal origin in Galicia, which generates 1,400 direct jobs and accounts for 2% of this autonomous community’s GDP, with a turnover of 1.2 billion euros.

These 40th anniversary events were attended by Alberto Núñez Feijóo, First Minister of the Regional Government of Galicia, and its Minister for Rural Affairs, José González, among other dignitaries.

A highlight among the events held has been the 8th Annual gmp.Galis Forum, a meeting of experts in Industry 4.0 in Santiago that has discussed how the use of Big Data and automation will affect animal feed factories and cattle farms, and how these operations are vital for business competitiveness.
