Colombia: New technologies and production methods showed

Within the framework of the International Environment Fair (FIMA) that will be presented in Corferias in October, Sáenz Fety brings the #Ahora project to Colombia, which wants to find the answer on how to feed people without harming the environment.

For this reason, it has partnered with different sectors such as Corferias, the Dutch Embassy, the Universidad de los Andes, the Ministry of Agriculture, Enel X (Enel-Codensa business line), iNNpulsa, and the Holland House.

“We want to focus on two key messages: the first is aimed at the consumer since they must know where their daily food comes from as it is possible to obtain it without chemicals or pesticides. When we begin to understand where food comes from, we begin to create responsible consumption awareness. The second message is addressed to governments, showing them that, with existing technologies, Colombian agriculture can be transformed," stated Alejandro Sáenz, Corporate Relations Director at Sáenz Fety.

Carlos Correa, Environmental Minister from Colombia, and Alejandro Sáenz, Corporate Relations Director at Sáenz Fety. 

As consumers become more aware of how food is produced, they will demand higher quality. "The trend around the world is to eat organic products that do not contain chemicals, and this is the gamble for Sáenz Fety in the Colombian market, being a Colombian company with 60 years of experience that specializes in seeds, vegetables, and fodder, offering the best materials for Colombia to produce better products and with higher quality."

Technology and environment
“Technology is an ally that increases productivity and helps to optimize production while taking care of the environment. Colombia produces 8 kilos of tomatoes per m2 in physical greenhouses in various places. With a controlled high-tech greenhouse, it is possible to reach productions of more than 60 kilos of tomatoes per m2," the executives explained.

The Director of Corporate Relations of Sáenz Fety emphasizes that the planet must be fed without destroying it. To produce while conserving the circular economy and sustainably are trends that will be found at the International Environment Fair (FIMA). The container produces using solar panels with the support of their ally Enel X. In addition, there is recirculation of water-saving 96% of this resource for food production.
