According to Quintana, these contributions are intended to support investments made by SMEs that contribute to saving energy or reducing the impact on the environment. Also those actions that improve safety, hygiene, health and working conditions and investments that result in new and better products, processes and management systems and organization, among other aspects.

She also recalled that the 2016 and 2017 calls for this aid order benefited around 80 SMEs of seafood processing valued at more than EUR 12 million.

Among the projects subsidized there were some related to equipment for the improvement of transformation processes, with innovation in the field of new and better processes, with the improvement in the treatment of waste and energy savings.
