We’re linked to 30 communities across Chile, providing support through different projects and programs focused on driving socio-economic development.
Building strong, supportive ties with our local communities is essential for Agrosuper’s sustainable development.
That’s why in 2018 we donated around $6 million USD to programs and causes aimed at improving the quality of life for the people in the towns and villages where our production plants are located.
44 people make up the Agrosuper Community Relations team. Their job is to find opportunities and ways we can contribute towards the socio-economic development of our surrounding communities.
We are greatly committed to the following three main areasimproving education, supporting local businesses and promoting healthy living.
In 2002, together with Fundación Agrosuper, we created our very own school: el Colegio Los Cipreses in Lo Miranda, a small town in the Doñihue district.
Today, our school provides outstanding, free education to more than 900 young people from the surrounding areas.
Cipreses school currently ranks second among the state-subsidized private schools in Chile.
In 2016 we formed partnerships with more than 50 farmers in the O’higgins region, with the aim to support development of their crop farming.
How? By using a bio-stabilized fertilizer made from pig slurry to help crops grow on their low-fertility land.
