Social Impact
Social Impact & Special AchievementsThe great majority of the permanent workers of the fields and packing, live in an urbanization located in the proximity of the company denominated Chacramonte. This urbanization is made up of relatively solid constructions and has basic services such as public lighting, natural gas, primary and secondary school, first aid room, municipal sports schools, library, police, retirement center, community center, telephone and internet. On the other hand, the following structural failures are detected in this urbanization: poor roads that prevent the entrance of the population in times of frequent precipitations. They do not have a sewer service, which causes severe health problems, when the underground waters get high they act as an infectious source due to frequent flooding of septal chambers. Water needs to be pumped and is of low quality. Public transport is inefficient (poor state of the units, low frequency).
It is considered that the premium obtained from the certification of fair trade products will be destinated, in the coming years, on actions that aim to improve the living conditions of Chacramonte:
- Management of improvements in the infrastructure of streets, sewage, water quality.
- Contributions of material to health rooms and child care.
- Improvements of the green spaces and sports areas.
