The Fritas of the South
In the early days of the Republic, a person could buy a loaf of bread at a wholesale price, for €1.50, and then buy a kilo of flour at a local market for €0.70.
Today, a loaf can be bought for just €2, while a kilogram of flour can fetch €10.
This is the Frita system, which originated in the early 20th century in the southern states of Andalusia, Cordoba, and Valencia.
It was not until the late 1960s that a new Fritana system was adopted, and its implementation began in the mid-1980s.

The Frito system is the first to use modern methods of distribution.
The kilo-grains are transported by rail to the central region of the country, where they are distributed in shops, markets, markets with vending machines, and at supermarkets.
The bread is then prepared in factories, where it is baked, refrigerated, and distributed.
The final product is sold in supermarkets.
In total, the Frito System employs 4,700 people in Valencia alone.
The cost of living In the late 1970s, the regional economy began to deteriorate, with a collapse in exports and an increase in unemployment.
Unemployment peaked in 1981, and the government began to close down businesses.
At the same time, there was a shift in economic power in the north from the central government to the region’s economic elite.
The economic crisis hit the south hard, and unemployment rose to over 60 percent in 1981.
This was exacerbated by the war, and many in the region were forced to migrate.
The southern states, in particular, began to experience unemployment of their own.
By 1986, the unemployment rate in Valencia was nearly 80 percent.
The region was forced to seek protection from the United States government.
The Republic of Spain began to develop its own economy, and a Fritna system was born.
In 1992, the new system was rolled out in Valencia.
The economy of the region grew steadily, and in 2003, the region surpassed the number of municipalities that existed in 1982.
In 2017, the number was just over half of the number that existed then.
It is not clear how many Fritinas are still operating in the Republic of Ireland, but one estimate put the total number at 2,700.
By 2019, there were more than 9,500 Fritnas in the country.
This trend has continued, and now, as many as 7,400 Fritanas are operating in Ireland.
In 2016, the Republic’s unemployment rate was almost 12 percent.
This included more than 2,200 Fritias.
This year, the figures have risen to more than 8 percent.
With the economic crisis now over, many have decided to leave the region, and others have decided that the country will not be able to sustain its economic recovery, which has been hampered by the collapse of exports.
