Sa Porgadora

Open door service!

The sieving service consists of the cleaning of grain (cereals and legumes) of local varieties, foreign varieties, conventionally and organically. 

Sa Porgadora is located in the Sineu Agricultural Cooperative (Camp Mallorquí Fruits), at Carrer Carril, 21, Sineu.

Sa Porgadora is the only center for cleaning organic grain and local varieties in Mallorca and the Islands.

This project is managed by our organization together with Camp Mallorquí, which owns the facilities and carries out the cleaning of the grain. We take care of the management, so that the project works well and the users of the service are satisfied.

The reason for the Sa Porgadora project

The agricultural sector has difficulties in obtaining grain for sowing or for human consumption, among others due to mini-farming and the use of the same grain sowing and harvesting machinery for different farms, which causes mixing of different species to the detriment of the conservation of varieties in their purity.

Currently, there is an increase in the demand for flours of local and organic varieties due to the bread made from them. Despite the growing demand, farmers and millers find it difficult to obtain selected cereals for consumption.

It is known that, by now, some legumes or cereals are on the verge of disappearing, since they have no commercial outlet as a result of the lack of cleaning machinery. There is a market that values these varieties and that values the production of organic products. In the case at hand, it seems that there is a demand for being able to make cereal flours and to be able to sell local legumes. Thus, we can say that there is a certain potential in these types of products, but with the current tools the cost of production becomes very expensive.

An investment with infrastructure is necessary, since the quality achieved in Sa Porgadora from cleaning is good, compared to how the grain arrives. But in some cases, especially in legumes, it could be improved, and for this reason, more and better infrastructure is needed. Cleaning the grain is not only important for what can be achieved as a final product, but it is a key process to preserve cultivated biodiversity, to encourage the autonomy of farmers and, therefore, food sovereignty.
