    Water care in San Juan Agroexport

    Water is the vital liquid par excellence that ensures the existence of life on earth, it is the natural resource that helps other resources; In San Juan Agroexport we know this great truth very well, that is why we have various techniques that allow us to take care of this vital liquid, today we will see some of them.

    Water Management Programs

    The Environment Committee in San Juan Agroexport defines three activities in order to implement the integrated management of water resources:

    1. Awareness and participation

    As part of raising awareness in San Juan Agroexport, it is an important pillar to encourage awareness of the importance of water as a scarce resource and of the corresponding responsibilities for proper management.

    2. Expansion of knowledge

    Thanks to the data provided by the knowledge through the awareness of the care of the vital liquid, the knowledge is expanded on issues of supply security and the adequacy of water sanitation, all aimed at the rational use of water.

    Waste water management

    The management of wastewater in the plant has been standardized in order to meet the requirements set forth in the Regulation of the discharge and re-use of wastewater and the disposal of sludge (Government Agreement No. 236-2006), among the practices that exist are:

    Physicochemical analysis of water: The physicochemical analysis of wastewater is carried out once every six months in order to verify compliance with the parameters established by the Regulation of discharge and reuse of wastewater and disposal of sludge.

    Septic tanks: Septic tanks are used to capture discharge water from toilets, changing rooms and offices. These are kept in optimal conditions and the sludge is removed by a specialized company when it reaches its storage limit.

    Wastewater treatment plant: The organization has two treatment plants for wastewater treatment, these receive internal maintenance two to three times a week to separate non-organic waste, additionally enzymes are being applied to help the degradation of fats from the detergents used in the cleaning and disinfection process and to reduce the amount of fecal coliforms present in the discharge water.

    As a socially responsible company, it is our duty to ensure the care and conservation of water, it is a commitment to our planet as part of returning each of the benefits that it has given us, for such commitment is that #SomosSanJuan.

     

    Fight Malnutrition

    On several occasions we have touched on the importance of all those foods that we consume, they provide nutrients that promote the optimal functioning of our body and in most cases these contribute to the eradication and treatment of diseases, it is fully proven that a balanced diet It provides many benefits, but we also need to know the problems that could cause a picture of malnutrition.

    Malnutrition and Malnutrition

    It is important that we know these two terms that are commonly confused, but they represent a polar opposite to balanced nutrition.

    Malnutrition: Refers to poor ingestion or poor absorption of nutrients in the body, it is also due in large part to hypocaloric or hypoprotein deficiency, unfortunately this process occurs mostly in underdeveloped countries, mostly in minors.

    Malnutrition: Malnutrition refers specifically to the nutritional mismanagement that we may have, that is, excess nutrients or lack thereof, which are not necessarily associated with a deplorable physical state, in fact, being overweight is an example of malnutrition , since, in the absence of a good nutritional administration governed by healthy diets, the impact on the body is negative.

    Malnutrition in rural areas

    The causes of malnutrition (mostly child malnutrition) are due to structural deficiencies at the socioeconomic level of a country, other factors that occur are lack of access to education, The fact that a large part of the population living in rural regions does not have the possibility of a decent education, deprives job opportunities from being greater, and therefore the provision of a home is less, giving rise to a rationalization of food in family circles that generally exceed 5 members.

    The Juan Francisco García Comparini Foundation promotes the eradication of malnutrition

    For more than 8 years, the Juan Francisco García Comparini Foundation has promoted programs in the population that seeks every day the eradication of malnutrition problems, and in turn education in the community about the ways in which it can be

    1. On a monthly basis, poor people are supported with bags of basic grains in vulnerable communities.

    2. Month by month training on nutrition is given to more than 450 women from different communities in the Sumpango and San Lucas Sacatepéquez area.

    3. We have an incaparin treatment program for children with malnutrition problems, the duration of each program is according to the needs of each patient.

    4. The corporate programs "My Pantry" and Pharmacy, for the employees of the different companies of our corporation, provide basic grains at lower prices than the market, as well as the ease of obtaining them through payment credit programs.

    5. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, support has been provided to communities with deliveries of food bags and donations of vegetables to low-income communities.

    As a socially responsible company, our commitment to the community with regard to nutrition is one of the most important pillars since we know first-hand the importance of a balanced, green and constant nutrition to benefit our nation and our population, it is for what #SomosSanJuan.

    Climate Change and World Agriculture

    In recent decades climate change has been a determining factor on our planet, it has produced effects of which we must be aware in order to provide benefits not only to our natural environment, but also to have an impact, although it may seem incredible, on what we eat, but how is this possible ?; Climate change influences agriculture, which in turn is the source of foods rich in vitamins and minerals with which we nourish our bodies. This time we will see both points of view, How does climate change affect agriculture?

    Historical References

    In 1992 the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was adopted in New York and entered into force on March 21, 1994. Its purpose, among other things, is based on strengthening public awareness, on a global scale, of problems related to climate change.

    Years later, in 1997 the Kyoto Protocol was established, this protocol establishes the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through objectives set for industrialized countries, there are extensive adaptation measures that are developed worldwide

    Global warming and the Greenhouse Effect

    One of the negative effects due to environmental neglect is global warming, the consequences of this result in the loss of fresh water sources, in other areas in the medium term it would be promoting desertification, which in turn would degrade the soil.

    As a result, agricultural techniques are evolving to anticipate these problems that can occur gradually, they are specializing in adapting to hot and dry climates in current crops to go a step forward and optimize them. to avoid losses and continue to maintain the quality that characterizes them.

    In another section, they also highlight that the thawing and warming of some areas would contribute to the generation of new lands that are suitable for cultivation, in places that probably need greenhouses in parts of the year; Likewise, the extended warm seasons favor the acceleration of flowering and harvest of many crops, which in a certain part would increase production.

    Actions we can take in favor of climate change

    To help in the process of climate change and act in favor of our planet there are small actions, but with great repercussions, below, we share some of them:

    1. Reduce CO2 emissions: Whenever you can, use your car less, opt for sustainable means of transport, such as cycling, or use public transport more.

    Every time you use your car, remember that each kilometer that you increase the speed, the CO2 increases considerably and the expense, each liter of fuel that the car consumes represents approximately 2.5 kilos of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere.

     2. Save energy: Reading the optimal recommendations of our appliances not only allows us to save energy but also unnecessary expenses on our electricity bills.

    3. Habits of sustainability: Recycling represents more than 730 kilos of CO2 per year since just recycling reduces half of the garbage generated at home.

    4. Practice reforestation: A tree in its entire life can absorb up to one ton of CO2.

    Always remember to maintain sustainable habits to benefit our planet with small actions that give a great impact, San Juan Agroexport maintains in its regular programs, actions that promote sustainability and that in turn benefit climate change to promote an optimal environment in our crops , always giving the best of Guatemala to the world #WeAreSanJuan.
