Our agro-industrial company is dedicated to the extensive agricultural production of grains, legumes, textiles and plant oils, and to the industrialisation of soybeans in order to produce bioenergy and animal nutrition products.
The company exploits a total of 29,000 planted hectares distributed in north-western Argentina, in fields located in the provinces of Tucumán, Catamarca, Salta and Santiago del Estero, where our agroenergy industrial plant is also situated.
Our production takes place in 12 estates distributed over four provinces in north-western Argentina, spanning a total of 29,000 owned hectares.
We grow different types of annual crops based on our agro-ecological area achieving greater productive efficiency.
The process is divided into four stages: Fallow, sowing, crop protection and harvest.
We own the only agroenergy and animal-nutrition industrial complex in NW Argentina. It includes a soybean storage plant (with a capacity of up to 185,000 tonnes) and four industrial plants equipped with cutting-edge technology for soybean crushing (1,200,000 tonnes per year) and the production of biodiesel (220,000 tonnes per year), lecithin (2,000 tonnes per year) and balanced food (350,000 tonnes per year).
We own a balanced-food and protein-concentrate production plant which provides food safety and innocuousness for manufactured products.
Given our strategic location, we offer an excellent, reliable and close option for the development of cattle, swine and poultry production in the region.
All of our products are subject to strict quality controls which are conducted at our own laboratories.
We work on managing a long-term sustainable production system which means implementing specific actions that promote a balance between productivity, profitability and environmental protection in our estates, thus providing safe and high-quality products based on regulations concerning responsible production throughout our production process.
We have georeferenced plots in our fields with the aim of monitoring and controlling the flora and fauna of the native woodland areas preserved in our agricultural units.
We have established improvement measures for restoring natural habitats inside our estates and improving their quality and connectivity. Moreover, we have aimed to reduce threats to the fauna by implementing a greater hunting and access control.
We are committed to considerably reducing the characteristic waste generation of production processes by adopting waste treatment practices, such as:
Started in 2003, the Foundation aims at strengthening the rural communities of the Argentinian Northwest, by answering some of the innumerable social and educational needs of the region. Through our own training programmes, which are related to subjects such as Values, Health, the Environment, Human Rights, Child Labour, Entrepreneurship and Labour Market Integration, we seek to strengthen the comprehensive development of children, youngsters, adults and their communities.
