In 2021, Citrofrut invested in Social Programs in the regions where we operated, such as Zaber Foundation, Red Cross, Nuevo León Firefighters, and other charity organizations. In addition, our plants invested in local and social programs.
One of our priorities is to promote sustainable development in the communities where we operate, and thus, we started social impact studies in the communities of Huichihuayan (San Luis Potosí), Paso Largo (Veracruz), Alamo (Veracruz). We established priorities and action plans in each location based on these assessments.
