Working Towards a Sustainable Future
At Coliman Allfresch we have a shared vision for sustainable production. Where possible we strive for sustainability. Not just for commercial gain but for the prosperity of the people and our environment. A sustainable supply chain, working for all. But what does it mean to work towards a sustainable future? Investment!
In 2014, Coliman Grupo obtained Fairtrade certification for their organic bananas, demonstrating their ongoing commitment to sustainability at all levels – human and environmental.
Fairtrade and organic premiums have enabled Coliman to invest in the well-being of their 2,000 employees in a number of ways.
Collaborators benefit from regular medical check-ups throughout the year to help prevent chronic diseases. They also actively encourage their employees to maintain healthy, active lifestyles.
“Our main goal, when we refer to the Coliman family, is the integral well-being of all employees and their families by adopting healthy lifestyles.” Coliman.
Coliman also greatly believes in the power of education. In 2017 they opened the Coilman Corporate University. The training facility focuses on developing and educating all Coilman employees – both male and female. Coliman also provides the schools of their employee’s children with the supplies they need in order to deliver the highest possible standard of education. From stationary to computers and electronic tablets, Coliman is committed to helping improve the standards within schools.
Coliman also actively supports more than 20 non-governmental organizations, providing food assistance and/or social welfare assistance to people with limited resources, seniors, children, among others.
More recently, Coliman launched ‘Un Kilo Que Alimenta Sonrisas’ or ‘ 1 Kilo Nourishing Smiles’ campaign. As part of World Food Day, Coliman distributed 1k of food to people in vulnerable zones within the States of Sonora, Sinaloa, Baja California Sur, Colima and Chiapas.
