Canary Islands recommending 'healthier' local veg

According to the Regional Councillor for Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Water, Narvay Quintero, vegetable products grown in the Canary Islands have fewer pesticide residues than imported ones and, therefore, the consumption of the former is safer.

Quintero made this statement during the presentation of the European project, Pervemac II, which counts with the participation of the Canary Islands, Madeira, Azores and Cape Verde, and whose objective is to analyse the presence of pesticide residues in crops to promote a healthier diet, based on the consumption of local products.
