Snail farming has become an alternative for livestock farmers that offers them new business opportunities. The Centre of the Andalusian Institute of Agricultural and Fisheries Research and Training (IFAPA) of Hinojosa del Duque (Cordova)is a referent in Spain in the training of these farmers. 180 snail farms have been created in Andalusia over the last decade, supplementing the income of exploitations.
It has been three years since entrepreneur Antonio Fernández from Arahal (Seville) began to work on this idea. As the owner of an olive mill, he performed countless tests until he found the final formula.

A company in Malaga has developed Sirae, a system that allows for rationing electric consumption in homes. Through the use of devices and a mobile app, the user can control the consumption of his or her electrical appliances, use them during the hours when it is cheapest to do so, and in that way save on his or her electric bill. This project is part of the Minerva Program of technological entrepreneurship, boosted by Vodafone and the Andalusian Government.
