The Precompite project, which has received an award for Good Sustainable Development Practices in Latin America and the Caribbean from Pacto Global Colombia and the UN Global Compact, aims to improve the lives of rural families, promote sustainable economic growth in rural regions, and improve the production and entrepreneurship capabilities of those who live there.

We believe in the creation of shared value, and we work to identify, discover, and take into account the social and environmental circumstances of the areas where we carry out our activities in order to have a positive impact on the communities and contribute to their integral development. To do so, Procompite not only promoted the growth of participating association, but also helped increase the income of the families involved in the project by 30%.

A sustainable project

The sustainability of the project is taken into account right from the very beginning: each productive unit must guarantee that the technical and economic support and the opening of markets lead to better prices and communication channels.

Under the leadership of Socodevi — the operator of the agreements — international markets are opening, local and regional governments are getting involved, and programs such as Alianzas Productivas (or Productive Partnerships) are being presented to the Colombian Ministry of Agriculture.
