For a couple of years, sport has become a topic of interest for some of the communities where we are inserted. Every year we receive requests from institutions and associations, who ask us to be present with contributions or generating activities that promote and finance the holding of sporting events. As a company we support projects of this type, understanding that sport is a contribution to people's health and that it helps in the comprehensive training of young people by giving them tools that are valued such as teamwork, perseverance, healthy competition, respect, among other skills. This program was also aimed at Company workers, who can participate in a series of initiatives aimed at improving their lifestyle, promoting healthy eating and sports. Some of the activities are sports classes such as Crossfit, healthy eating workshops, and fruit delivery to the Company's corporate buildings.
