AgroAmerica was a finalist at the Reuters Events Responsible Business Awards 2023 in London
LONDON, November 1, 2023 – AgroAmerica was a finalist in the Social Impact category at the 14th Responsible Business Awards hosted by Reuters Events. The awards ceremony was held at an in-person gala in London to celebrate sustainable business excellence.
AgroAmerica’s Bana-Nutrition project was one of the finalists in the Social Impact category due to its achievements in the fight against acute childhood malnutrition in Guatemala. Through this program, the beneficiary communities have learned to produce their own banana flour in an artisanal way and to cook nutritious foods for children. In addition, the program also helps to reduce food waste by taking advantage of surplus banana production to transform it into flour.
“As a leading food corporation, we developed the Bana-Nutrition program aligned with our mission to provide the world with high-quality, sustainable, and nutritious food. We are working to help build communities where people become empowered to take food security and nutrition into their own hands” explained Fernando Bolaños, CEO of AgroAmerica.
