According to the WHO, if the food currently produced reached all people without being wasted, it would be enough to eliminate hunger in the world.

PFS makes it possible to have fresh food when thawed with the ease of logistics, shelf life and handling of frozen food.

Renewable energy.

Our processing plant is located next to a river, which we use to generate our hydroelectric energy, achieving that 50% of the energy we use is renewable.
