Havana, Aug 17 (Prensa Latina) The Cuban Institute of Sugarcane Derivatives Research (Icidca) continues its work with great determination in the development of bioproducts for agricultural use, mainly in its introduction in the Cuban market as an essential contribution to food sovereignty.

In an interview with Prensa Latina, Mariela Gallardo, director general of Icidca, also informed that they are seeking to contribute to the fulfilment of Law 148 on Food Sovereignty and Food and Nutritional Security (SAN).

In this way, she added, they also work in leading to the realization of the principles and strategic axes of the Economic and Social Development Plan until 2030 (PNDES 2030).

The goals set, the director said, focus on increasing the use of bioproducts in Cuban agriculture, dissemination, promotion and support to producers, demonstrating by these productive means, linkages and integration between science and business.
