ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY: || United for the planet
Behind closed doors: the company develops agricultural, industrial manufactural, distribution, marketing, and administration processes. The first ones mentioned previously take place in Bitaco, Valle del Cauca, and the main goal is to take care of the environment, and rationally use water and energy, and good waste management. In the other processes the main objective is the continue improvement of each one of them, utilizing clean and state of the art technologies, also guaranteeing the flawless handling of water, energy and waste.
Beyond company gates: the company has been characterized by its environmental vocation. This is shown by the proportional use of Bitaco´s lands: preserving 117 hectares of forests and at the same time only 62 hectares are dedicated to grow tea and aromatics, which are healthy and friendly to the ecosystem and 30 more hectares are for cattle, which in year 2020 will be incorporated to the list of crops.
Our crops are a biological corridor, which allows the preservation of the ecosystems with 256 bird species, 28 amphibious, 23 reptiles and 772 flora.
Aware that water is a global priority, our goal is a continuous growth that will bring us bigger challenges: To radiate to the neighbourhood the conviction that the region of Bitaco is a forest area with springs that currently supplies water to a population of 10,000, and this number can reach 15,000 in 2020.
We are aware that the climate change will increasingly influence more our business and will demand an increase a great amount of actions to protect our surroundings.
These actions will be taken to influence education, investigation and innovation, created in different areas for adults, children and young people.
