Congratulations to Juana Castillo, Favourite Daughter of Fuerteventura, for her recent award

The Ayuntamiento congratulated Juana Castillo Ravelo, a livestock farmer from the Municipality of Tuineje who received the award of Favourite Daughter of Fuerteventura for her professional trajectory linked to the primary sector for the past thirty years. Juana Castillo Ravelo was one of the first cheese producers to take part in the Regulating Council of Denomination of Origin for the Majorero Cheese. Her cheeses, who come under this label, are of great quality and prestige; but as a businesswoman, she manages a livestock farm of over 2.000 goats and produces 3.500 kilos of cheese weekly. The Ayuntamiento also congratulated the NGO Hospitrán for receiving the award from the Cabildo of Fuerteventura for Social Merit that was presented during the same gala.
