Villajoyosa (Alicante) / The company Chocolates Valor has announced that it will increase the salary of the staff that operates in the factories of Villajoyosa (Alicante) and Ateca (Zaragoza) by 20 percent while the state of alarm lasts, in recognition of their work in this period.

In a statement, Chocolates Valor has stated that this incentive in monthly compensation aims to “recognize in a special way” the work of its employees.

“The company has shown appreciation to its workers for the effort and dedication they are showing during these complicated weeks,” he said.

The company based in Villajoyosa has also reported that it has donated 300,000 euros to finance research to combat Covid-19 and to acquire medical supplies for the main hospitals in the province of Alicante and other parts of Spain.

Specifically, 100,000 euros will go to finance research strategies to fight SARS-CoV-2 promoted by the Alicante Institute of Health and Biomedical Research (ISABIAL).

It is a sanitary research institute of excellence accredited by the Ministry of Science and the Ministry of Health that brings together experts from the Alicante health department: General Hospital, the Miguel Hernández de Elche University (UMH) and the University from Alicante.

Company sources have highlighted the importance of advancing research to finally eradicate this pandemic that plagues everyone.

The rest of the money, 200,000 euros, will go to the purchase of priority medical supplies and the donation of products such as EPIs, which have already begun to be distributed in the main hospitals in the Alicante province.

The distribution of products is also carried out in different parts of Spain, as a priority in hospital centers, to cover the needs of the groups involved in helping in this health emergency. (April 16, 2020, EFEAGRO / PracticaEspañol)
