We want to take an active role in the development and growth of people and communities linked to us in different territories. This is why, for several years now, we have been carrying out different initiatives in cooperation with the communities near our operations, generating impacts through projects related to culture, education, health, and the environment. The goal of our business model is to develop activities that benefit, through concrete measures, the quality of life of our co-workers, their families, and the communities where we are involved.
We define culture as the means through which society builds the common good. It is the way people develop themselves and contribute as social beings. We commit ourselves to repay society by launching and consolidating initiatives that develop people’s knowledge and comprehensive skills.
We are convinced that education is the main path towards development. This is why we have challenged ourselves to contribute in improving conditions and tools so teenagers and children from our community can have access to high-quality education.
In order to protect and ensure the well-being of our community, in 2013 we created the Mobile Dental Hospital, which provides dental care services for communities in rural areas where access to healthcare is limited. The center has treated near 2,000 people over these years.
Thinking about the well-being of future generations, at Hortifrut one of our corporate commitments is making a positive impact on environmental care. Therefore we develop many activities in that area.
Because at Hortifrut we are committed to sustainability, we want to extend this responsibility to our agricultural producers by providing them with the Sustainability Manual. These are four volumes where you can review the main topics that are relevant in the industry for all stakeholders, such as clients and consumers.
