The company, which is committed to taste in harmony with people and nature, has found the best conditions for this in Tunisia
SanLucar, the premium brand for fruit and vegetable, celebrated its 10th anniversary of production in Tunisia with a great commemorative event at the farm La Cinquième Saison in El Hamma in the region Gabés.
1400 people attended the celebration, including employees and their families, the entire management team of SanLucar Tunisia, as well as numerous representatives of the Tunisian economy and government. It was an emotional act in which Yves Graf, the company´s responsible in Tunisia, thanked the whole SanLucar team for its endeavour and contribution to the company´s development in the country.
“After 10 years of activity without ever taking anything for granted, we can be proud of the progress of our company in Tunisia. Nowadays, we are presented in the country with the SanLucar farms La Cinquième Saison in el Hamma, Les Perles du Désert in Gabés and Flor’Alia in Bizerte. This success is undoubtedly due to the commitment, the quality and the experience of all the people that are part of the SanLucar team in Tunisia”, explains Graf. “It is precisely by working together and with energy that great things are achieved”, he concludes.
SanLucar is currently employing around 1500 people in the north and south of the country, mainly in the cultivation of tomatoes, grapes and berries. The company is the first one in Tunisia which received the evaluation certification GRASP – which is included in the international standard Global G.A.P. – confirming good social management. With the corporate responsibility programme d.r.e.a.m.s., SanLucar has launched numerous projects of social and responsible action.
In recognition of the company´s continuous work to improve the labour conditions of its employees, this year SanLucar has received the National Prize for Social Progress awarded by Tunisia´s president Béji Caïd Essebsi. This validates SanLucar’s dedication to act locally and to improve the lives of the local community.
