It is the oldest cooperative in Baix Camp and one of the oldest in Catalonia.

With 2,200 members and a hundred workers, it is "more alive than ever" and leads an inter-cooperation project in olive oil and hazelnut.
To pay tribute to the members, the image of the silos has been renovated with a 1,200-square-metre mural with a 1,350 square metre exterior mural.

21 October 2020. The Coselva cooperative in Selva del Camp celebrates its 120th anniversary next Saturday, 24 October. Under the name Asociación Agrícola de la Selva del Camp, the oldest agricultural cooperative in Baix Camp and one of the first in Catalonia was founded in 1900.  
Pere Ferré, Managing Director of Coselva, explains that "throughout its history, Coselva has gone through many stages and today we are a cooperative that is more alive than ever. For this reason, and given that due to Covidien-19 we have not programmed any festive event, we wanted to pay tribute to the members with a 1,350 square metre mural that we are painting outside the silos and which represents the hands of the farmer carrying the harvest. We will also highlight the anniversary logo, in recognition of the road travelled as a result of the efforts of many generations".

La composición pictórica es obra de dos artistas especializados en la elaboración de murales exteriores, Edgar Goas y Nilo Safont, de la empresa de diseño binómica, organizadora del Gargar-Festival de murales y arte rural de Penelles. El mural se pinta a mano directamente a los silos y los autores se han dedicado todo un mes. Se prevé que estará listo en noviembre.

Coselva currently has 2,200 members and a hundred workers. It is a leading nut company, which produces 80% of the hazelnuts with the Avellana de Reus designation of origin and specialises in the chocolate industry. At the Mas del Víctor estate, 40 hectares of land are used for experimental hazelnut tree research.

In the field of olive oil, it has an annual production of more than 400,000 litres of Antara extra virgin olive oil, under the Siurana designation of origin.

Coselva exports its extra virgin olive oil, hazelnut and hazelnut paste for industry to five continents, while its most immediate challenge is to work on a cooperation project to integrate different cooperatives linked to the same production sectors.
