Don’t buy stolen products, council urges
Los Realejos has launched a campaign to try and eradicate the illegal sale of agricultural products.
The local council is warning that the stolen products might not meet safety standards and could therefore pose a risk to health.
Councillor for rural development of Los Realejos, Alexis Hernández said they were trying to educate consumers to be cautious when purchasing products from unauthorised sellers.
The Mayor of Los Realejos, Manuel Domínguez said he was concerned about the cases of robberies in farms and fincas, especially avocados, in recent times.
“All consumers must play a fundamental role in the defence of local products,” he said.
