Contribution to the local economy

We aspire to be a business with a positive impact on its local environment and throughout the entire value chain, one that contributes to improving the overall well-being of all the parts of society we have an effect on.

With this programme we hope to have a positive impact on the communities our business directly or indirectly affects. We will work to reduce inequalities, promote healthy habits, restore local ecosystems and ultimately become an inclusive business, in this way contributing to society as a whole.
