Connecting Cultural Roots
Diverse societies stay connected to cultural roots while embracing new cultures. In BioMar we help facilitate community activities in and around our production facilities.
In Chile our production facilities are neighbours to many indigenous tribes. Who have been living in the surrounding areas for centuries, long before the Europeans explored and immigrated to the very south of Latin America.
To BioMar, it is extremely important that we maintain a strong co-existence with the local communites and help contribute to a development of local societies and our shared environment.
BioMar has been engaged in strengthening the living conditions and future income potential for our neighbours by supporting local initiatives aimed at enabling self-sufficiency and general education. We believe that education and engagement provides the best possible long-term support.
In 2019, we supported initiatives such as a workshop to improve local hand-crafted products, beach cleaning, mutual visits between workers and the communities, school transportation, and programs aimed at promoting recycling as well as horse-therapy for kids.
