The meeting was filmed and broadcasted by MySaveur TV (see video -in French-), YouTube channel linked to the awards that in previous dates visited Spain to film the facilities where Corvina REX Frescamar is produced (see program “Territory Gourmand” -in french-).
The founder of Monadia himself, Willy Mansion, went to see the processes in person and direct and present the film.
Thus, the head of this company with more than 20 years of experience in quality analysis that manages the prestigious Saveur de l’Année awards, toured the hatchery, the farms and the processing plant of REX together with the sales manager of the company for France, Olga Pérez.
