Community Liaison

Through community engagement initiatives, agreements have been established by Qué Rico with secondary schools, continued education centres and universities to pursue internships in various company areas in order that students get involved in a work environment to develop and enhance their careers. Moreover, Qué Rico has been actively involved in the Annual Expodel, a local business development exhibition that takes place in General Rodríguez. Support has also been provided to the El Tejado Technical School through a stall to exhibit the products developed by students during the school year. Financial support is provided on a sustained basis to several organizations including the Police Station and Fire Brigade or with a view to remodel local schools or just to organize an event.

Protection of the Environment

To ensure the proper location of its operational sites, Qué Rico engages closely with the communities where it operates with a view to maintain social and environmental balance for the benefit of all stakeholders. Qué Rico complies with all the environmental rules at the municipal, provincial and federal levels and follows the strictest solid and liquid waste management and final disposal practices. Sustainability in the poultry industry is associated to solar energy projects and all farms include organic waste composting systems. Our slaughter house includes effluent treatment systems to reclaim waste water from the plant with a view to discharge it into the environment with no environmental impact. Our air flotation process separates solids from water. Then, water is pumped to effluent ponds to form a three-phase mixture of air bubbles which are finally scrapped and water is discharged into the local basin.
