In order to ensure the health and welfare of its workers, Frutera held a deworming event day in the workplace, benefiting all men and women who work in the farms.
The event day was held for 975 field workers and packing plants personnel and administrative staff. It was also taken to the schools where the children of Frutera’s employees study; Escuela Las Guacas, Masagua, Escuintla; Escuela Colonia la Libertad, Aldea Magueyes 1 and 2, San José Escuintla, and San Jose Mogollon, Nueva Concepción Escuintla. 2,765 people were benefitted, including Frutera’s workers and school children.
Diseases caused by parasites and other stomach diseases are the most common illnesses in the area, which is why the company accompanies these event days with hygiene campaigns such as the importance of washing hands and drinking safe water.
“The health of our employees is a priority on the company’s agenda, and it is for this reason that we have pledged to contribute to the health of our people and promote initiatives that contribute to improving their life quality,” said Walter Tello, Frutera´s Community Relations Coordinator.
