Abstract

"This company seeks to be one of the best companies for the world. They believe SHARING is an act that creates wellness and that’s why they created the welfare triangle: Taste good (delicious), Makes good (nutritious) You feel right (share). Andrés explained to us how Alcagüete has a double social commitment: ""Our enterprise, first attacks malnutrition, which has two important aspects undernourishment and obesity. Also, we develop friendly products with the environment.""

In the first aspect THE OVERWEIGHT AND OBESITY, as shown by the WFP, is estimated to affect around 2.000 million people, affecting physical and emotional aspects of the population around the world.

In the second aspect is MALNUTRITION AND HUNGER, as shown by the WFP, it is estimated that more than 900 million people suffer a kind of malnutrition. Usually it is produced by poverty. In Colombia according to DANE statistics, the national index of extreme poverty is about 26,9% this is an alarming digit. Looking at the data by department, in Bogota around the 12.4%, in Choco this number exceeded the target, about 58.7% . In other words, more than half of the population has difficulties to access a balanced diet with the necessary requirements for the proper growth of children."
