Participation of TASAs plants in communities under an environmental sustainability approach
by Tecnológica de Alimentos S.A. (Private sector)
For the fifth consecutive year, TASA Effect Challenge, was carried out, where our employees take on environmental challenges to contribute to the environment and work in teams with the community. In 2016, activities were carried out in all the plants, among them the following: creation of ecological stations for solid waste, production of compost for maintenance of green areas from organic waste, planting of trees, recycling of paper and bottles, among others, reaching a total impact of 20,360 beneficiaries. For 2017, an environmental project will be worked with schools, giving continuity to the TASA 2016 Effect Challenge, promoting sustainability in communities.

Every year, in the different communities where TASA operates, plastic recycling campaigns are carried out involving community interest groups. Through alliances with service providers, it will be possible to channel all the recycled material, ensuring the destination of the plastic, in favor of its transformation.
