The value of the doctorate lives on at Citrosol, extending beyond the academic environment“, emphasized Benito Orihuel.

Why do we hire doctorates?

Orihuel outlined some of the motives for his company being committed to hiring doctorates; a formula to develop knowledge and transfer it, the added value of the application of science to the real world and market demand.

Doctorates are trained to investigate. Before studying for a PhD, it is unusual to know how to investigate or, better said, to investigate well”, said Benito Orihuel, “doctorates are bestowed with greater capacity and initiative. In general, they are better filtered, have more scientific-technical capacity, are more inquisitive and they communicate better, especially, but not only, in writing”.

For the CEO of Citrosol, the company values ​​the vision and problem-solving capabilities of this profile of professional. Doctorates with a wide perspective and broad vision to obtain solutions and the clearsighted ability to define the final objectives.

About Citrosol

Throughout the round table, Benito Orihuel outlined the synopsis of the La Safor company, summarized by innovation to maintain the freshness, commercial life and food safety of fruit and vegetables through technology and post-harvest treatments.

As a result of our work, Citrosol is, today, a benchmark within its market segment, as shown by the growth in sales we have experienced over the last ten years. Between 2008-2018 turnover increased by 147%. With 31% of the market share, Citrosol is the post-harvest leader in Spain, the Mediterranean area and in Peru.
