    What is a sustainable company?

    Sustainable companies are those that through concrete actions make improvements in their environment, in several factors such as: environment, corporate social responsibility, development in the members of the corporation and the family nucleus.

    Mainly a sustainable company tirelessly seeks the effective and efficient use of its activities to achieve primarily high quality products, affordable costs by taking advantage of raw materials, avoiding waste from the focus on renewable environmental resources that impact on the economy and development social and local.

    What programs does San Juan Agroexport have in its work as a sustainable company?

    Currently we focus on three important pillars of social and environmental development to improve the conditions of our employees and society in general: Education, Health and Social Responsibility.

    Education:

    Accelerated primary education program: This program started 10 years ago and has allowed many of our collaborators to start and complete primary education in 3 years.

    Basic Education Program: On October 28, 2013, we began a collaborative relationship with the Guatemalan Institute of Radio Schools (IGER) to open the basic cycle at the San Juan AgroExport facilities. To support this program, an economic investment was made for basic infrastructure.

    Bachelor's Program in Sciences and Letters: In January 2017, the San Juan Agroexport Institute and the Guatemalan Institute of Radio Schools (IGER) once again united ties to inaugurate the Bachelor's Degree in Sciences and Letters with a duration of 2 years.

    Corporate social responsibility:

    Our commitment to our collaborators is intimately linked with our community, that is why we share an alliance with the Juan Francisco García Comparini Foundation, with whom we have implemented various projects in which we have focused on transforming a large number of people into three major areas: Health, nutrition and housing.

    Our products consist of 7 international certifications that demonstrate the delivery and quality of our products; we'll tell you what each one of them is about:

    The Hebrew word kosher (Kosher) means apt or appropriate, meaning that the products to which it refers are considered pure because they fulfill all the precepts of the Torah, specifically the Old Testament Leviticus.
