As part of its commitment to sustainability and to its environment, Grupo Pistacyl has reached a collaboration agreement with the “La Era de las Aves” Zoological Park and Shelter in Fresno El Viejo (Valladolid) for the donation of pistachio destined to feed their animals.
It is the chopped pistachio that remains mixed with the shell after the peeling process and that does not meet the necessary quality for its sale, but is highly suitable for consumption by birds, given its nutritional characteristics.
In addition to collaborating with this center, which has been rescuing and caring for hundreds of specimens of different animal species for more than a decade, the donation prevents the waste of this product and favors its use, in a further step towards the circular economy and sustainable cultivation that is part of the values of Grupo Pistacyl.
The president of Grupo Pistacyl, Alfredo Pérez, was in charge of delivering the first pistachio donation to Enrique Marcos, manager of “La Era de las Aves”, where around 350 animals of 100 species from different continents currently live.
Most of them are animals that have been abandoned or taken in after an accident in their natural environment, although pets also live in the center that, due to various circumstances, can no longer be cared for by their owners.
With all this, the objective of the center is to make the biology and care of species known, through environmental education, and to insist on the importance of conserving animals and the natural environment to protect and preserve our biodiversity.
