ABOUT THE FOUNDER
UNIPROCA was created thanks to the initial response of 180 farmers who enrolled to found it, after the several appeals made by José Manuel Sanz Timón, Farmer and Veterinary Geneticist from Extremadura with a professional practice in Toledo, through the different communication media and various radio and television programmes, related to the country, farming and rural life.
The founder of UNIPROCA explained at the time, to a few goat producers who wished to attend, that it was his idea to create a cooperative to watch over the interests of farmers in the central-southern region of Spain. After two constituent assemblies in 2010, UNIPROCA was born in the month of July of the same year, beginning its work marketing milk for export in March 2011.
