Sustainability for us is not a trend or a fashion: it is our reason for being.
By working closely with value chain partners and other key stakeholders, Pacifico has raised its sustainability targets across the entire value chain: At the front-end, in the harvesting of our premium fruit and vegetables, design and manufacturing of our products and packaging; and also in the systematic recovery of valuable materials once the consumer is finished with our product or package.
We contribute to the wellbeing of our fruit and vegetables growers
We pay a fair and stable price to farmers. We also establish direct trade relationships based on trust and respect. Moreover, we promote independence, education and positive work conditions.!
We contribute to the wellbeing of our workers
We create quality employment at the manufacturing level for unskilled female and young man between 18 and 28 years old, two vulnerable segments of the population that face the greatest barriers to access and remain in the formal labor market in Colombia. Therefore, the stability and regularity of a formal job is literally life changing not only for them, but also for all family members. Furthermore, we provide a safe work environment for all employees, and our facilities are comfortable and well illuminated.
We contribute to the wellbeing of our suppliers
We work closely with our suppliers to achieve greater efficiencies, reduce costs and improve our products and packaging performance.
We contribute to the wellbeing of our customers (retailers and wholesalers)
We developed procedures and quality systems which ensure compliance with demanding food safety regulations and buyer requirements. Therefore, our retailers and wholesalers are able to reach and retain more customers, generating positive brand or corporate value, and achieving greater corporate sustainability.
We contribute to the wellbeing of our consumers
We are committed to use only industry-respected best practices and can ensure the safety and quality of our great-tasting, all-natural snacks.
We contribute to the wellbeing of the community in which we operate
Most of our employees come from the local community, which has an unemployment rate above the total national rate. We donate to local children's charities and to local firefighters. Moreover, we strive to eliminate or minimize the effects of any activities that would have a negative impact on the the surrounding area.
We contribute to the wellbeing of our planet
We are committed to reduce the impact of our activities on the environment in general and the planet's climate in particular. This means providing support for the implementation of sustainable farming practices, putting into practice a smarter use of energy, using water wisely, reusing or recycling materials, implementing responsible waste disposal practices and encouraging greener work-related travel and commuting.
