Sustainable Food Companies

Many companies do comply with sales subjective in the food industry and at the same time they are responsible for taking care of the environment, creating jobs, implementing development in their countries and above all giving us quality products that help to take care of our health.

Knowing the story of the Guatemalan entrepreneur Juan Luis Bosch Gutierrez, we can see that it is possible to find a balance. Create jobs, help the economy, bring quality products to our tables and above all take care of the environment.

Here are some more examples and how they achieve it.
