KHAOULA BEDISLaboratory head Agromillora Mediterranée since: 2016
Responsibility within Agromillora: I am excited to work at Agromillora and have the privilege of collaborating in the construction process of the new laboratory. I also offer advice on the purchase of necessary lab equipment. I am learning about production systems, technical operations such as pruning, grafting, sanitary treatments, etc. Once the laboratory is finished, my functions will be the implementation of production plans, controlling the production process and at the same time supervising the plant multiplication and selection tasks. Professional experience in Agromillora: I can consider the last months at Agromillora as an introduction to professional life. I am delighted to work with a fantastic team that has helped me integrate quickly into the company. I enjoy feeling part of the team, being able to communicate and convey my ideas easily. Hobbies: In my free time I like to perfect my skills and abilities and stay up-to-date with new scientific and innovation discoveries. On the personal side, I enjoy cinema, learning new languages and walking. I enjoy Sunday family dinners and going shopping with friends. What would you take to a desert island? I imagine taking the Holy Quran, my cat and I think I would not forget to take along a small boat, just in case I change my mind and don’t enjoy being there. Who knows!

I feel very happy outdoors. My biggest passion is to hunt for mushrooms and asparagus with my family. I like picking them, and also eating them! I enjoy going out to dinner with friends. Ah! And I am a huge Barça fan! I am Barça member and whenever they play at home, that’s where I am!
