LUTEGA. "Ruta del lúpulo y la cerveza gallega"

Lúpulo Tecnología de Galicia (LU.TE.GA), Galician Cooperative Society, is a newly created business, that works on the reintroduction of hop cultivation in Galicia, its transformation and commercialization among the main national producers of beer. The LU.TE.GA cooperative is formed by professionals of the agrarian and industrial world that came together betting on grouping as enterprising philosophy. In five years, LU.TE.GA hopes to have 20 Ha for hop cultivation, which will bring a yearly production of dry product of 40,000 kg. This production will mean the 5% of the current national production, that it's nearly completely on the province of León and is insufficient to cover the Spanish beer industry's needs for hop.
