The IBERCHAIN Operational Group is led by the Spanish Association of Iberian Pig Breeders (AECERIBER), as the agent of maximum representation of Iberian pig farmers. In addition, the Operational Group has one of the largest Iberian pig cooperatives (IBERCOM) and also three of the most important ham industries in the Iberian pig sector representing 3 DDOOPP of Iberian pigs such as Señorío de Montanera S.L. (Badajoz), COVAP (Córdoba) and Sánchez Romero Carvajal S.A. (Huelva). For the development of the project, the companies of the primary sector have two technological partners, Cedesa Digital S.L and Coveless, S.L., that will develop the platform and the automatisms. Likewise, the group has the support and collaboration of the Iberian Pig R&D Centre (INIA), the research group «Engineering of Agro-livestock Production Systems» of the University of Cordoba and Imasde Agroalimentaria, S.L., which participates as technical coordinator of the project. This project is supported by the European Association for Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability Innovation (AEI-AGRI) and financed under the National Rural Development Programme 2014-2020 by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) and the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, Food and Environment.
