SanLucar has celebrated the tenth anniversary of production in Tunisia with a commemorative event at the La Cinquième Saison farm, El Hamma, in the Gabés region.
Some 1,400 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.
“After ten years of activity without ever taking anything for granted, we can be proud of the progress of our company in Tunisia," said the company's Yves Graf. "Nowadays, we are represented 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. It is precisely by working together and with energy that great things are achieved."
SanLucar currently employs around 1,500 people in the north and south of the country, mainly in the cultivation of tomatoes, grapes and berries.
The company is the first in Tunisia to receive Grasp certification, which is included in the international standard GlobalGAP, while its corporate responsibility programme Dreams has launched numerous projects.
In recognition of the company´s continuing work to improve labour conditions for its employees, SanLucar has also received the National Prize for Social Progress from Tunisia´s president Béji Caïd Essebsi.
